On this date in in 1998 “Titanic” became the first movie in North America to earn more than $600 million dollars. This huge sum of money was due to the massive number of women and girls between the ages of 13 and 52 who flocked to the movie theaters to watch and re-watch Jack and Rose’s tragic and ill-fated love affair time and time and time again. Many men, thousand and millions of them who refused to go to this feelings fest, later started asking around about who this “Jack” character was and why their wives were murmuring his name in their sleep. Fortunately for Jack Dawson he was a fictional character or his health and well-being would have been in serious jeopardy in 1998 and 1999 from all the men in the world who were looking for him to explain to him how he was making the rest of us look really, really bad.

    My ex-girlfriend back before she was my ex trick me into going to his movie! She said I would like it because theres a boat crashes and a nalked woman but she lied. I mean she didn’t really lie because she was naked in that one part and I liked that an the boat really did crash like she saaid but nothing blew up! and how can you a disaster bovie without explodions? You can’t that’s how.

    And then after the boatr hit the icebug its nothing but sad music and talk, and okay maybe I did cry just a litte bit there but not because he died. I was crying because I spent money to see it and nothing blew up and tthe naked part was ovet. I sure wasn’t cry because some stupid guy gave up hislife to save the womam he oloved. And now I’m crying just a litle bit now but just bevause I’m out of beer. Shut up. SHUT UP!
