The Suicide Squad Need Your Help!

Uh oh, Suicide Squad is apparently not very good according to the all knowing Rotten Tomatoes percentage rating. A lot of people are deciding to give it a miss but I thought ‘meh, sounds alright, I’ll check it out’.

Our Hero holds up a DVD in each hand and begins to look back-and-forth between them. After scratching his head for an extended period of time, he strides over to the counter and slams down both DVDs before the clerk.

OUR HERO

“Sod it, I’ll take both.”

CLERK

“Okay. So that’s one copy of ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and one copy of ‘Kangaroo Jack’. Enjoy your evening and make sure you return them by Saturday as we’re being shut down next week.” (more…)
