Bad Santa

New this week Question: Why does The Kid (Thurman) give Willie a wooden pickle? (Does he confuse the phrase "wooden nickle"?) What am I missing?

Question: What is a talking walnut? Details please.

Tobin OReilly

Chosen answer: It's just something the kid came up with. He is not quite all there. It's just something that illustrates how odd the kid is.

Grumpy Scot

Question: Here's something I've never understood. Who is that guy that attacks Willie in the parking lot near the start of the film? The guy that says "I am not gay". What the hell is he talking about? Then calls him "assclown". Who was that guy and why did he attack Willie for no apparent reason?

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: In the bar scene that immediately precedes this one, this same guy caught Willie accidentally staring at him. As Willie was staring, it stands to reason the guy thought we was 'coming onto' him.


Question: Why was Thurman's father in prison and where was his mother?

Chosen answer: Thurman's mother died, and his father was in jail for embezzlement.


Question: What is the title and composer of the nice piano piece that plays at the beginning and end of the film?

Chosen answer: The music is Nocturne number 2 Es-dur 9/2 by Chopin.
