“WOOF WOOF WOOF! MEOW!” – WHAT NOT TO SAY ON A BLIND DATE (1987)

Who are these people? (Amazon)

Walter Davis (Bruce Willis), junior exec at a Los Angeles investment bank, can’t get a date. Who has time for romance after arduous sixteen-hour days at the office, massaging the assets of such valuable clients as Japanese tycoon Yakamoto (Sab Shimono)? Unfortunately, the bank now plans a formal dinner in Mr. Yakamoto’s honor and it would be unthinkable for Walter to turn up stag. What a difficulty. Who will volunteer as the “extra woman," Walter’s blind date for the night?

Enter Nadia Gates, an acquaintance of Walter’s brother Ted (Phil Hartman). Turns out that Walter’s date is Kim Basinger circa 1987. Could be worse, right? But Nadia’s extraordinary beauty comes with a catch.

“Don’t get her drunk,” Ted warns. “If you get her drunk, she loses control.”

What does that mean, exactly?

“She gets real wild. Woof woof woof! Meow!”

ARE YOU STONED ENOUGH TO STEAL THIS SIGN?

Mile 420, on I-70 east of Denver, will no longer be marked with a road sign due to repeated theft, Denver's Fox TV affiliate reports. Colorado Department of Transportation’s next best milestone is 419.99 (pictured).

Apparently “420” is urban slang for “Let’s get high on weed” (urbandictionary.com).

Not hip to the lingo? Clench your thumb and index finger and raise to pursed lips before squeaking “Four twenny!” or “Four two oh, dude!” in a shaky nasal voice.

Now you’re with it!

No word on whether other Miles 420, outside of Colorado, will similarly be downgraded to 419.99 as their signs gradually brighten the dwellings of light-fingered stoners.
