Nut Up or Shut Up

My momma always told me someday you'll be good at somethin'. Who'd have guessed that somethin' would be zombie killin'?
~Tallahassee, Zombieland

Zombieland is movie which manages to be light-hearted despite its zombie-ridden, post-apocalyptic setting. It's not the sort of thing that would usually make it into Wellness Wednesday, but here we are.

Right before he was about to do something dangerous, Woody Harrelson's character would say, "Nut up or shut up," which always made me laugh.

The cussing and gore starts at 45, so stop then if you just want the quote. (I couldn't find one that just showed the first 45 seconds)

Later, when Jesse Eisenberg's character is faced with a zombie clown (his worst fear!) that he needs to conquer in order to save his ladylove, he isn't even surprised. Of course, he thinks. He had to do this. It was time to nut up or shut up.

Is there something that makes you dig deep, something you need your most crazy/brave self in order to do? It could be something more consequential than finding a Twinkie, but maybe not.

You know what time it is!

Gotta be public speaking...need to dig deep for that one!

But the Twinkie Quest has to rank up there, too. :-)

(Also thought the first few notes of Dueling Banjos was cute!)

Woody plays such raw characters in so many films. Loved this clip, Tabatha.
