Lands himself in the slammer,
Eats a LOT of eggs.

    “What we got here is…
    Failure to communicate.”
    Cop shades. Luke, look out.

    “…Luke. He was some boy.
    Cool Hand Luke. Hell, he’s a natch-
    ral-born world-shaker.”

    Best of Facebook contributions:

    Mr. Newman, you
    are one bad ass, but that is
    waaaaaay too many eggs.

    One of Paul’s best flicks
    “Failure to communicate”
    Very quotable

    “Stop feedin’ off me!”
    I most certainly will not!
    Luke, I love you so.

    “Takin’ it off, boss?”
    “Take it off,” the boss replied.
    Chain gang protocol.
