Must be Italian

Something arrived at my door last night.

Anyone knowing this movie gets what I mean.

[Mr. Parker reads a side of the box with the prize that he won]
Mr. Parker: Fra-gee-lay. That must be Italian.
Mrs. Parker: Uh, I think that says FRAGILE, dear.
Mr. Parker: Oh, yeah.

** I won't be shooting my eye out with it.

Is there a "major award" in that box?? All I have to say is FFFUUUUUUUDGE!!!

the original big ring said...

Ralphie: Oooh fuuudge!
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] Only I didn't say "Fudge." I said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the "F-dash-dash-dash" word!
Mr. Parker: [stunned] *What* did you say?
Ralphie: Uh, um...
Mr. Parker: That's... what I thought you said. Get in the car. Go on!
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] It was all over - I was dead. What would it be? The guillotine? Hanging? The chair? The rack? The Chinese water torture? Hmmph. Mere child's play compared to what surely awaited me.

By the looks of the box I would have to say either UPS or Customs does not understand what "Fra-gee-lay" means!

Have fun! :)
