My Favorite Movie Moment From 2010

You know the movie FUBAR right?

You DON'T? Well if you care about me at all you will go illegally download it this moment and watch it. It's a "documentary" about some uh, metal rocker dudes in Calgary, Alberta. Canada. Their names are Terry and Deaner and they're um...awesome losers. It's impossible to explain, but just know that these are the guys I grew up with. (Not literally, but, I mean, if I squint I'm pretty sure I recognize them from that party that one time in the field where what's his name broke his leg...)

Here's the trailer for FUBAR.

And then when you've fully digested the hilarity and genius that is FUBAR, you must watch FUBAR 2, in which they leave Calgary and get a job in Fort McMurray.

These movies are especially good if you're from Northern Alberta, or, like me, grew up in a rig town and/or personally know people who have worked in Fort McMurray, aka the Mordor of Canada.

Here is my very favorite moment from FUBAR 2, (spoiler alert) after Dean loses his other testicle. Don't worry, I won't tell you how it happened. In this scene he is pretty much contemplating suicide. It's Christmas and him and the family are all playing a nice karaoke-based game where you pick the song you're going to sing out of a hat. Earlier in the movie it is established that Dean is a terrible mumbly singer.

P.S., This is totally NSFW or kids because of shouting swearwords.

CASTRATI! hahahahahaha oh it's magical, I tell you.

Images from here here here here here and here, which I think are all either "work in the oil sands" job postings or environmental websites protesting working in the oil sands.

Welp, I think I've enriched your lives just about enough for one day.
