Friday’s Mental Exercise

Stand in front of a mirror, picture a favoured actor and try to capture their mannerisms and facial tics, for example the Robert De Niro trout mouth, the Christopher Walken head bob or that sharky Jack Nicholson grin that gives the impression that he wants to chew the elastic from your underpants while rifling through your wallet.

For the advanced class: do the above while reciting one of their speeches in your mind in their voice.  Under no circumstances speak out loud.

Because I said so.
