that kid is back on the escalator again!

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of the movie Mallrats. In fact it’s in my top three. So when I heard about the escalator incident at Union Station my mind immediately made the connection.

What do you mean - what connection? Surely you remember Jason Lee’s passionate speech about escalator respect?

Now I understand that was not the case at Union Station, that there was in fact a malfunction that caused the escalator to enter “warp speed” in such a manner that may sound funny, but was actually serious and caused several spinal injuries.

You know what is funny though?

Jason Lee.

this speech.

T.S.: What? Do you know that kid or something?
Brodie: I hope his pants get caught and a bloodbath ensues!
T.S.: What is with you today?
Brodie: Don't get me wrong, I don't wish the kid harm, but his mother should suffer that horrific ordeal so she'll learn how to manage her child!
T.S.: That's sort of a harsh lesson, don't you think?
Brodie: Man, there's not a year goes by -- not a year-- that I don't read about some escalator accident involving some bastard kid that could've easily been avoided had some parent -- I don't care which one -- but some parent conditioned him to fear and respect that escalator!

In conclusion:
· Actual escalator accidents - not funny. Most of the time.
· Jason Lee saying things – funny.
