I’m trying to become a here at work.
A cow-orker is putting together a presentation and she asked me if I could think of a scene from a movie in which bad investment advice was given, preferably in a humorous manner. The first thing that popped into my head was the scene from Defending Your Life where Albert Brooks’ friend wants him to invest in Casio and he goes on to predict the stock tanking, ending with this …
Lena Foster: What did you finally invest in, Mr. Miller, do you remember?
Daniel Miller: [under his breath] Um, uh… cattle.
Lena Foster: And what happened to the cattle?
Daniel Miller: I don’t know; I never got a straight answer. All I know is that their teeth fell out.
Now my questions are … anyone got anything better? … and is there a nice legal way of ripping a short scene like this off a DVD or something, for inclusion in a Power Point presentation.
My career isn’t hinging on this, but it would be cool if I could help out my cow-orker like this.
