Did you know?

The legendary film actor Humphrey Bogart was known for playing a range of tough characters in a series of films throughout the 1940s and 1950s, including The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, and The African Queen. The men he portrayed often possessed a cool, hardened exterior that occasionally let forth a suggestion of romantic or idealistic sentimentality. Bogart also had a unique method of smoking cigarettes in these pictures — letting the butt dangle from his mouth without removing it until it was almost entirely consumed. It is believed that this habit inspired the current meaning of “bogart,” which was once limited to the phrase “Don’t bogart that joint [marijuana cigarette],” as popularized by a song on the soundtrack to the film Easy Rider, among other things. Today “bogart” can be applied to hogging almost anything.

*Indicates the sense illustrated in the example sentence.

 

 

JAY Z-I JUST WANNA LOVE U (GIVE IT 2 ME)  *******This is a cool video!  The editing is pretty darn good.  I’m into filmmaking so I notice things most people don’t care much for.  Sorry!  Humphrey Bogart is one of the original pimptastic hustla’s, so you can’t help but smile and say, “He’s got it like dat!” when you watch this video.*******
