Arghhhh, Oi be readin':

Silas Marner The Weevil of Raveloe

Silas Marner is a lonely weevil living in rural 1800's England. He had been wronged in a religious cult as a maggot and has since shut himself away from the weevil populace. He inhabits a discarded biscuit and lives frugally. His neighbors do not understand him and he does not try to understand them.

The Squire's family is a contrast to Marner. His sons chafe against his tight hold on the family biscuit barrel. Dunzel Weevil, the second oldest, can easily use blackmail against Godfrey, the oldest, for schemes to help him enjoy the irresponsible life. Godfrey wants to marry the local beauty, Claire the Dung Beetle, but Dunzel has reasons to prevent the marriage.

Rhiannon rings like a fly thru the night
and wouldn't you love to spray her?
she rules her life like a beetle in flight
and who will be her gardener?

WEEVIL DEAD

YArrrr...remember this old classic horror flick?

Five friends go up to a cabin in the woods where they find unspeakably large amounts of weevils lurking in the forest. They find an old magic biscuit which looks rather delicious. Once the magic biscuit in eaten, flesh eating weevils are released. One by one, the teens become deadly zombies. With only one remaining, it is up to him to survive the night and battle the deadly weevil infestation.

Saturday Night Weevil

Saturday Night Weevil is a 1977 film starring John Travolta as Tony Boll-weevlo, a troubled Brooklyn Weevil whose weekend activities are dominated by visits to a local bisco-thèque.

While in the biscuit, Tony is the king, and the visits help him to temporarily forget the reality of his insect life: a dead-end job, bodily changes from a grub to a beetle, insect tensions in the local community, and his associations with a gang of dead-beat fruitflys.

Seabiscuit
A long shot becomes a weevil.

PMDb Plot Summary: In an unbuckled, swash-less era when pirates were in dire need of legendary figures to inspire them to greater acts of marauding, Seabiscuit was a film whose time had come. A documentary on the avarice and desperation that develops when the characters have no provisions for months on end but fish heade stewe and weevil-biscuits, it lurchingly explores the delicate and complex interactions between weevils, cook, crew and captain. The film accurately and movingly portrays the people and weevils and events of those troubled times, and how they still influence us today.

“It made me laugh. It made me cry. It made me hungry.” -- Gene Shalit

“Most of us do not consciously look at movies. Seabiscuit is the reason why.” -- Roger Ebert

“Film lovers are sick people. I felt particularly sick after seeing this film.” -- Francois Truffle
