I am laughing so hard I am crying!

I just went back and read the original thread on this...somehow I missed it yesterday.

Ennis Balmor?? Jack being buried in a plant?? OMG, this is priceless.

LINE: We can hunt in November, kill us a nice elk...
SUBTITLE: We can hug on November, caress and nice oak.

LOL I knew Jake like carpentary but feeling up wood is going a bit far don't you think?

LINE: We got a family plot and he's goin in it.
SUBTITLE: Where you get a family plant, he's going at it...     (Hmrrmm, well, we can only wish he's goin at it BEHIND this plant.. and that somebody's filming it for us...  go Jack..)

LOL Sheyne this is "Piss your self laughing" stuff! Wooops Miss I had an acident! LOL :-[ Only joking!
Ahh the mental images this subtitle conjures up.......Let me dream a while!........ ;)

LOL Sheyne you are the queen of all things comedic! Seriously this stuff is comedy gold! I love this and you hun! :-*

This is too funny for words! I love it.
My favorite part:
LINE: We can hunt in November, kill us a nice elk...
SUBTITLE: We can hug on November, caress and nice oak.
...then you ask me about Mexico and tell me you'll kill me for needing somethin' I don't hardly never get.

LINE: I can already see what little Bobby looks like.
SUBTITLE: I already see a little barbie she looks like.  (hmm)

no wonder Bobby was acting like Tony Soprano. He butches up cause his grampa kept thinking he's looks a barbie. Makes so much sense now.

Question Sheyne, do you mind if I post this on a French BBM forum? Some of them speak very good English and will understand.. (not sure about the Malayan sub-titles though..  ;D)

May I?

Of course you can, Jude..  hope they get a giggle out of it...  Honestly, some of the lines myself - the caressing nice oak one... oh god, you have just got to hope that some people aren't relying on these subtitles to understand the film because you're going to get some poor viewers walking away and trying to discuss it on a forum somewhere and wanting to know where in the hell in Wyoming Jack was able to get good with using a canoe??  And did Ennis ever have to face judgment over depressing Jack's uncle to death.  And what ever became of Kyle, Gary, Patsy, Grandall and the family plant??  Not to mention who else was on Ennis's short list?? hmmmm
Chut up!

I think there are some interesting developments on the canoe front! I mean in november they can hug and feel up some oak, hey maybe the canoe is made of oak and that is what Ennis is refering to! And he has been asking Jack to show him how to ride the rapids! Oh never mind the actual storyline, this has just got interesting people! :o

Thank you Sheyne! I will post it there and will let you know about the reaction (if any..)!

It's just brilliant! It's like a parallele story - I'd love to see Jake and Heath re-enact some of those scenes.. Especially the oak caressing! LOL!

Good night -

LOL!!! Oh my, that is so friggin' funny. Most of the times that I write "LOL", I'm not actually laughing out loud, but this time I am!! HAHAHAHahahaha! But, it worries me that they may have a very distorted view of our beautiful BBM. Still hilarious though!  ;D
