This was so much more fun to make than it should have been. Fireworks inside!
So I typed in USA sexy girl into Google and about 30 pictures in, I found this one. "That is a bad ass American Woman that could possibly be a superhero too." So I wasn't sure what to do with her, so I put her in a caption setting and just started writing. A former marine / cop is changed into a woman somehow and overcomes it to beat her enemy and hundreds of other collateral damage seemed to be what started coming out, and what the hell, it seemed like lots of 80's movies so I kept going, even including a reunion with the ex-wife now that he understands her needs a bit better.
I used Mendoza because of course, the Simpsons, and once I came up with the name Barbie Que (and in my head I'm thinking Mendoza's gang mistakenly calls her the spanish pronunciation, "Barbie K") I thought, that action hero name needs to have a flamethower! It just had to be .. and from there, I just started coming out with Arnold quotes left and right.
Not to step too far out of bounds, but this IS what America is all about. Everything in this caption just screams "America" to me. Good, bad, in between, tasteless, jingoistic, egotistical, and also ironic enough to embrace all those qualities without blinking an eye. Happy Independence Day Everyone!
And as is tradition, here is Linda Carter turning into Wonder Woman. Something I used to do as a kid, hoping that *I* would turn into her as well!
And we can't forget her cool ass powers. Make me tell the truth, Wonder Woman!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: So, what other pithy action movie pun quotes can you come up with for Barbie Que and her flamethrower?
