Line(s) of the Day #ForrestGump

Bubba and Forest Shrimp

Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.

Benjamin Buford “Bubba” Blue (Mykelti Williamson) in the critically and commercially acclaimed Forrest Gump (1994). Winning six Oscars, including Best Picture, in Gump it certainly has one of cinema’s most unique characters. It also led to the real life creation of Bubba Gump Shrift Company, which has over 40 restaurants.

    • There are other more famous ones, but this one really is my favourite. And I don’t even like seafood. I was shocked to find there really is a Bubba Gump restaurant chain as inspired by the film.
