So I get asked that a lot, and I always reply that, no I’m not a member but I do know a lot about it since I’ve grown up in that environment – at home and in school.
So naturally when Da Vinci Code came out in its book-cum-movie iteration, people would ask me if it “offended my order”or what I thought of it. And I would always reply with no I haven’t read Da Vinci Code because I think Dan Brown is the perfect example of english gone wrong. And I would also say yes I’ve seen the movie because, why not? In fact I had planned – and suceeded to watch with what is now known as the “opus dei night out” composed of Rico, Nana and Aina – all from Woodrose and Southridge.
What is Opus Dei’s stand on Da Vinci Code?
Are there such things as albino assassins?
Why do you think I learned Latin for four years? So I could talk on the cellphone and not be understood by the common man! Quo usque tandem Catilina patientia nostra? Quod erat demonstrandum; agricola poeta est!
See, I actually tried applying to albino assasin school but I was turned down because I was too pigmented. Thus, to meet the growing demand for albino assassins who aren’t albino, there’s a new group that opened called “the mulatto assassins” which is very prolific in the Philippines, Mexico and Spain.
Chapter four: “It’s a fiendishly clever code,” explained Desiree. “As you can see, the words say ‘White House White House Bo Bite House, Banana Fana Fo Fite House, Fe Fi Mo Mite House, White House.’”
“Yes,” said Hugh, frowning in bafflement, “But what can it possibly mean?”
“If I am correct,” said Desiree, “it is referring to . . . the White House!”
“My God!” said Hugh. “That’s where the president lives! Do you think . . .”
“Do I think what?” said Desiree.
“I don’t know,” said Hugh. “But we’re about to find out.”
So what did I think of the movie? Well, I have a thing for great actors so it was really distracting that Forrest Gump met up with Doctor Octopus and Magneto for this thriller.
And yes, by George, what a thriller! It was so thrilling that Tom Hanks had to break the movie’s rising action by exclaiming, “I need to get to a library.” Priceless.
