It’s Talk Like Jack Bauer Day!

By Wyatt Earp | January 14, 2009


That’s right, kids! It’s the most wonderful day of the year! It is also your best chance to talk (and act) like Jack Bauer without all of the hassles of body counts, Senate hearings, and more moles than Cindy Crawford’s face.

Of course, not everyone can pull off TLJBD with ease. You need guts, fortitude, and a cell phone that can stay charged for 24 straight hours. You will need to pepper your speech with the word “Dammit,” show an evil, unnerving smile, and always carry at least two items that can be used to “extract information” from your co-workers.

Not sure if you can pull this of effectively? That’s okay, because my compatriots at Blogs4Bauer provided a handy, dandy, FAQ list HERE.

Here are some samples – courtesy of The Man – to help you through the day:

Co-worker: How was your weekend?
You: Dammit Bob, we don’t have time for simple questions!
Co-worker: I just asked about your weekend.
You: Dammit, who are you working for?!!
Co-worker: Never mind, forget I asked.

Co-worker: Hey man, did you already get breakfast?
You: I’ve killed 3 people today, and no, I’ve yet to eat breakfast, dammit!
Co-worker: Is that a threat?
You: That’s not a threat, that’s a fact.

Boss: Hey, where are the reports I asked for?
(Pull out stapler, move towards boss.)
You: I think the question you should be asking is how are you going to read the reports after I staple your eyelids to your desk!

See how easy it can be? Just remember the key components to TLJBD: Use a lot of Dammits!, yell out every conversation, and when in doubt, utilize excessive force. Have a great day . . . dammit!

    When do I get to fight about who gets to claim finding the dead body?

    Oh yeah, that was “Stand By Me”, my bad.

    Dammit, sir, I’m English and, Dammit, I’m proud of it.
