i bought this telegram, because it’s probably the best thing i’ve ever seen. i’m framing it. it cost $1.
I’m guessing the brassy dame in question here is named “Mavis”, or “Ethel”, or something else deliciously old-timey.
Can you imagine being the operator?
Reminds me of the story of recording “Young Lust” in Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”, where they called a real operator, had them patch through a call, and a man answer when calling for “Mrs. Floyd.”

Elsewhere, it would be remiss to point out that while the film makes very little effort to support it’s technobabble, the crux of the action is Thor and Jane working together to save the world WITH SCIENCE! Now that is how you use an astrophysicist in your superhero movie. I don’t care if it actually makes sense, I want Jane to go from world to world with Thor and save people with science.

If you’re going to murder someone, don’t do it while Jeannette is having sex with Floyd in a bathtub.
Correction: if you’re going to murder someone, absolutely do it while Jeannette is having sex with Floyd in a bathtub. And that is how you get away with murder.
I stand corrected.
But if you’re going to be murdered by someone (attempted anyway) try not to have that happen while Jeannette and Floyd are having sex, they will get away with it and you will be absolutely dead.
Another thing is, try not to be taking a bath while all these murders are going on, because it’s almost guaranteed that Jeannette and Floyd will want to have sex whether you are in the tub or not.
…I could live with double-teaming Jeanette with Floyd. I mean, if they were into that. And didn’t kill me for funsies cause, hey, it is Jeanette and Floyd.
