    Hey west,when is ms.moe[superstar]birthday? Her public demands to know.

  7. #357
    If Ms Moe (Superstar) wishes it, then you and her public may see her Birthday celebrated on this very thread.

    But....if Ms Moe (Superstar) is like you, and does not wish it, then you and her public WON'T see it celebrated on this very thread...and I shall simply send her a quiet, personal message.

    Discretion is the key word for this agency!

  8. #358
    West you're good,i can see why ms.moe[superstar]hired you i mean the way you wormed out of that now in my case let's just say that it would be incriminating for me to reveal certain things,but ms.moe[superstar] is loved the world over and she even has one or two fans left in da hood although she snubbed a starring role in my latest and greatest celluloid classic.

  9. #359
    Ms Moe (Superstar) indeed felt she must graciously decline your offer for her to appear in your 'latest and greatest celluloid classic', simply because she knows that celluloid has not been used in the production of films for over 50 years, and that it is now mostly used for the production of table tennis balls.

    That's not so good for her image..and neither would be the 'one or two fans left in da hood', as they must be moulting really badly by now.....

  10. #360
    Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...west you're the funniest englishman this side of[stan laurel]oh and while we're on the subject-i'm having a celluloid fire sale reel cheap,hehehehe!!!

  11. #361
    Oh!

    Title : 'The Old Flame' :

    Leading lady bravely saves film director, after he is trapped in a warehouse full of burning celluloid.

    Do I detect a potential story line there.....?

    hey west,i like that storyline...is a certain unnamed superstar available to play the damsel in distress...and none of that[cgi]fake stuff either i'm talking real live fire,don't worry i insure all my artist up to ten dollars,and no more[celluloid]i'm using this new stuff[polaroid].

  15. #365
    Ah, but it is not the damsel who is in distress, but the film director, played by the leading man.

    The leading lady would need to throw the 'damoiseau' over her shoulder, so a very strict diet might be required.

    Plus, the bill for all the champagne required to quench the flames would be high. Think of all those retakes. And then there's the liquid nourishment required for all the cast......

  16. #366
    Haaaaaaaaaaaaa...i'll take care of the liquids and the flames,now i'm gonna give a certain superstar whom i won't name one more chance to make the comeback that she needs and i'm the only movie exec small enough to pull it off,i've got my assistant[ms.typo]typing out a reworked contract for you and a certain superstar[to be named later]to look over.

  17. #367
    I will certainly see that my client, Ms Moe (Superstar), is given the opportunity to look over it. Ideally, it will be from a great height......

    The Divine Ms M currently has a number of scripts to peruse, which is costing an absolute fortune in chocolates.

    One with great promise has the working title 'West Grand Blvrd'. Ms Moe is being eagerly sought to play the leading female role, Desdemona Normal.

    The greatest difficulty has been in casting the role of Miss Normal's companion and butler, former husband, former film director (former everything, actually) and former hire car executive, Hertz Van Rental.

    Who? Who?? Who??!... could possibly be found, possessing the depth of experience which would enable him to give this role the undeniable stamp of authority it deserves?

    Hey west,bootstrap booby is awaiting the arrival of a certain[superstar]to be named later to arrive for thier first scene together,he was gonna break out in goosebumps,but the geese are afraid of him but he is studying his line[one is all he could handle]...of course this is also a love story...he loves it when she reads him a story...who says i'm not romantic-this is the one we've been waiting for...golden turkeys here we come!!!

  24. #374
    I've been looking all over town for a certain Ms Moe (Superstar)....but she suddenly became most uncertain.

    She heard Ralph was moving, then read the threads about friction around these parts, and took to the hills. Bought a shotgun. She should know the threads I recommend to her are the utmost in propriety...but she's not so sure about your plots.

    Looks like Bootstrap Booby may have to wait a while.....

  25. #375
    Umm that's not good bootstrap can't wait,he might forget his line i've hired a tutor for him[at ten cents a week] so this is no time for ms.moe[superststar]to pull one of her publicity stunts...this is costing me a fortune.

  26. #376
    Ready..............aim...............

  27. #377
    Arr&bee, you should now that Ms Moe (Superstar) has appeared to rave reviews in 'Calamity Jane' and also , completely unrecognisable when playing 'old', as Granny Clampett in 'The Beverly Hillbillies'.

    She has already received many awards. In the unlikely event of Ms Moe (Superstar) ever accepting a Golden Turkey, it undoubtedly will be for a turkey which she, herself, has shot.
