My novels contain occasional pop culture references. Such as:
“Guess I picked the wrong day to stop sniffing glue.” (Tommy Chang in Crosscut)
“For a second he looked like Niedermeyer in Animal House, waiting for her to assume the position and to beg, ‘Thank you sir—may I have another?'” (Sarah Keller in The Shadow Tracer, who then notes: “She felt a violent urge to head butt him through the wall.”)
Here’s a pop quiz — or market research, depending on your point of view. Can you identify these TV and movie references?
- A woodchipper
- A clown peering from a storm drain
- “These go to eleven.”
- “Clever girl.”
- Skynet has become self aware.
- “If it bleeds, we can kill it.”
- “Tastes like… burning.”
