Bonus points to whoever gets the Augustus reference

Conversation while making lunch this afternoon:

Me: Are you really going to eat a burger and three hot dogs?

Jer: Yeah, I might. I'm hungry. Don't judge.

Me: Hey, Augustus, can you pour me a glass of water, too?

Jer: AUGUSTUS?! What are you having?

Me: A grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich.

Jer: Psh. Whatever. Don't be so quick to judge then. That's what Elvis ate a ton of.

Me: So?

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?

Or was this a Vomitorium reference?

"Augustus How do you feel being the winner of a Golden Ticket?"


Best show EVAH!

Hahahaha....I totally thought of Augustus the Roman Emperor, not August Gloop. Well, the emperor liked to indulge too so I wasn't all wrong. ;-)

Haha! Augustus Gloop! I like when he ate the end off the reporter's microphone. Or was it his mom? Anyway, I love that movie!

I thought of the Roman too..."unusually handsome" and there's a one armed statue around somewhere.

Of course you're talking about Agustus Glump from, "Willie Wonka and The Chocolate Factory." I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!

On another note: A "grilled" peanut butter and banana sandwich???? Never heard of someone grilling that before. Although a non-toasted peanut butter and banana sandwich rocks. YUM! =o)

Take, care Kelly.

Ooops, I meant *Augustus Gloop!* Hahahaha. Could have sworn his last name was, "Glump" for some reason. Don't know why.

I guess it's a generational thing if I automatically go to "I Claudius" when everyone else recognizes a Willy Wonka reference. For the record, I thought that movie was seriously creepy and never understood why children liked it.

Augustus, sweetheart, save some room for later!

I'm impressed! All good guesses, but Augustus Gloop is the winner. And, Wendy, that's the line I use all the time!
