Speaking of eye-patches, let's talk about them a bit, shall we? What I thought was interesting is that in the film, they explained how Rhona's character got that eye-patch. And they actually reveal what's behind the eye-patch. And that got me thinking about Snake. I often think about Snake. Like when I'm at a vending machine and I push B4 for a nice bag of pretzels and that little curly piece of metal spins, but not enough to let the nice bag of pretzels drop so that I can partake in their salty goodness. That's when I think of Snake. And I ask myself "what would Snake do?" He would probably light a smoke and then put his size 16 boot (he's always a giant when I think of him) through the glass and take everything. That's what he would do. But I digress.
So I was thinking about Snake. And I thought, I've seen Escape From New York a hundred times and I have no idea why Snake wears that eye-patch. He just does. But then I thought, it would be kind of cool to think up why Snake got that eye-patch. Did someone put a bullet in his eye? A shiv? And what is exactly behind that eye-patch? Maybe nothing is wrong at all. Maybe it's all for effect. Maybe that snake tattoo is a temporary one. Nah, man. That shit is for real. That's Snake. He probably put that tattoo on himself in a mirror. Okay, I'm digressing again.
So allow me to start a somewhat interesting Meme here. Or at least interesting to me. Here's the assignment:
1. Explain to the world The Impossible Truth Behind Snake Plissken's Eye-Patch. Could be a one word sentence (pussy) or could be a seven page novella (boring). Whatever you choose, but tell us all why Snake got the eye-patch.
2. Tag five bloggers asking them to create their own stories about the eye-patch.
3. Of course link back to Lazy Eye Theatre so that people know where this originated. And to those of you who got tagged by someone other than me, post your link in the comments section, I would love to read what you came up with.
Okay, now with the tagging. If I have missed on someone who desperately wants to do this, please go and do so. The more the snake-ier.
