Every Samuel L. Jackson Motherf*cker In One Glorious Video

No one lets loose with the profanity quite like Samuel L. Jackson and one of his favorite (and best delivered) expletives is “motherfucker”. So this supercut of every utterance Mr. Jackson has had of the word in his movie career is a thing of foul mouthed beauty.

Samuel L. Jackson And Laurence Fishburne Look Nothing Alike

samuel-l-fishburne
Their names aren’t similar either. So exactly how and why KTLA’s Sam Rubin (the supposed entertainment anchor for the show) got the two actors mixed up is a mystery to me.

85th-academy-awards
Well its that time of year again where anyone with competent motor skills and a high speed Internet connection decides to share their Oscar predictions with the rest of the world. And like the lovable lemming that I am, I am doing it too. I only predict the categories I care about and consider the “Biggies” which comes to 6 categories. Last year I went 4 for 6 (damn you Meryl Streep and guy from The Artist!!!) so I am looking to increase my average this go round.
