Do you do any impressions?
« on: August 01, 2007, 02:16:52 PM »

So I've got this crazy long commute every day.  Now I could do something useful like listen to foreign language cds in the car, but today I found myself working on a Jim Rome impression for an hour.  Then I realized that some of the better voice impressions in my arsenal are woefully outdated (Andrew Dice Clay, Deiter from Sprockets, Barney Gumbel, William Shatner, Monty Burns...)

Do you guys do any impressions/impersonations be they voice or physical (arnold palmer golf swing, Elvis on stage, CC Sabathia's delivery, etc.)

I have one friend that does a killer Mick Jagger performance at the drop of a hat and another that does a great Axl Rose, but needs to be egged on.

It doesn't matter if it only shows up after 5 beers or you only break out the impression in front of your spouse (who says it sucks), whatcha got?

I have a few that appear various times.  

I do a pretty good Dana Carvey version of Bush Sr.  You know the "Not gonna doit, wouldn't be prudent in this juncture..."  Outdated as well I know.

I also have been known to bust out a great Mr. T.  I pitty the po fool.  Mr T says study hard in schoo

My best impersonation that my wife actually thinks is funny is of Ms. Lift (Anne Ramsey) Owen's mother from Throw Momma from the Train.  Owen I want a pepsi.  *goshdarn* classic.

Ah, I'll have to stop imagining you delivering your movie quote posts in character. (which is probably for the best since I still haven't seen Snatch, Super Troopers, etc.  Embarrassed)

I have the uncanny ability to call up a nearly perfect movie or TV quote for any circumstance under almost any amount of pressure, but my impressions are generally pretty weak.

If you're goofy and you have a young child, you start doing lots of voices.  So yeah, I have a few.

I have the uncanny ability to call up a nearly perfect movie or TV quote for any circumstance under almost any amount of pressure, but my impressions are generally pretty weak.

I generally quote Josey Wales at work:

'Cause I got nothin' better to do'

Or I'll pull out a wrench or something, hand it to one of the guys, take it back and say:

'Oh, it ain't for usin', it's just for lookin' at' (Chief Dan George with his rock candy)

'Endeavor To Persevere' comes out alot as well.

I haven't had occasion to use:

'You boys gonna pull them pistols, or just whistle Dixie?'

yet, but I have used:

''Reckon these gentlemen will be ready to discuss some business after they're through?'

before.
