This is more of a moviespeak than a songspeak, but whatevs. I’m posting it anyway. It was one of our poker nights last week at the VFW, and it was getting fairly late in the game. I had already been eliminated, but I was watching my wife play. One hand, the guy sitting to my wife’s right folded his hand preflop, but I can only assume he would have had a good hand, because after the flop was dealt, he said, “Give me back my cards!”, and I said, “Ok, Mel Gibson…” My wife rolled her eyes, but one of the guys next to me chuckled, because he clearly saw how clever I was in referencing Mel Gibson’s famous line from the motion picture Ransom. I’m hilarious.
