SHOCKtober Day 19


Darryl Revok (Scanners)


RJ MacReady (The Thing)


Sayeth the chooser:

"Here's what he means to me: years ago, as a way to say "fuck you" to the Man, I registered for my Safeway card using a fake address and RJ MacReady as my name. (the Man cowered in fear, of course.) So now, more than a decade later, I still see 'THANK YOU RJ MACREADY' at the bottom of all my receipts and sometimes the checker says 'Thank you, Mr. MacReady.' That's living!"

That's a great story, Mr. MacReady.

God, I wish I'd thought to get a Safeway or CVS Loyalty card with the name R.J. Macready. I would just feel so much more badass buying toilet paper, a gallon of milk, or the occasional tampons, if the checker saw me out with a "Thank you for shopping with us, Mr. Macready."

This pairing is very close to my heart. I'm going to assume that the lack of comments is because we are all nodding silently in affirmation.
