Cakes on a Plane

"Eagle Man", I''ve looked over that list of story premises and titles you came up with. All I can say is every one of them damn movies is doable and a potential blockbuster. Now all we need is some kind of script, a few actors to play off the light I always shine, and the appearances I need to make on all the late shows that Samuel L. Jackson has just made another damn fine movie! - Of course, we will need e maney man too, so tell me: What's in your wallet?'

“Eagle Man”, I”ve looked over that list of story premises and titles you came up with. All I can say is – every one of them damn movies is doable and a potential blockbuster. Now all we need is some kind of script, a few actors to play off the light I always shine, and the appearances I need to make on all the late shows that get the word out that Samuel L. Jackson has just made another damn fine movie! – Of course, we will need a money man too, so tell me, Eagle Man – what’s in your wallet?’

 

A friend from Saudi Arabia visited us this week in Houston. She also brought a delicious pound cake that she had baked in her American community residence  just before the flight here, just to make sure it would be fresh. Fresh and delicious it was – and still is.

She’s gone now, but she made some mention before leaving that she may even bring us more than one fresh cake on her next flight back to Houston. That throwaway comment got me to thinking, unfortunately. It also gave me an out from writing about baseball again tonight.

“Hmmm …. cakes on a plane.” I thought. “Almost sounds like a movie title, doesn’t it?”

Next thing I know it’s about 45 minutes ago – and all the other sequels I could think of to the original “Snakes on a Plane” movie started rolling at me like so many bowling balls. I never had given much thought previously to how many one-syllable words actually rhyme with the word “snake.”

Get out your aluminum thinking caps, folks. I just about fried mine receiving all the ideas that came rolling in for other possible sequels to a “Snakes on a Plane” movie franchise, all starring Samuel L. Jackson, of course. – Man! That guy makes a lot of big-buck movies, for better or worse. There must be some kind of common law falling into place out there in Hollywood these days: No producer shall be allowed to make a big budget action-thriller movie without first offering a featured role to Samuel L. Jackson!

Here is a list of other potential dangers beyond snakes that could occur on a plane, along with our PPE guess as to what their titles might be. Old Sam L.J., of course, would be the male lead in each movie in the new franchise series:

  • Samuel L. Jackson won’t complain as long as he’s the ongoing big-bucks star of every sequel movie that Hollywood decides to keep making about various things (whatever) next found on a plane, even if the plots of these movies are more of a “sharknado” threat to our human intelligence than they are a clear challenge to the mystery and fright levels of anxiety that flow through the tiny minds of your average garden snail during backyard summer night showings of these jewels on 35 mm film during many of the annual “Neighbors’ Night Out” parties held around the country.
