What Would Samuel L. Jackson Do?

Thursday, January 28, 2010 17:07 GMT

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Just about any question in life can be answered through the wisdom of Samuel L. Jackson.

iSamJackson is an iPhone application featuring zany new quotes recorded by Jackson himself, both clean and naughty in nature.

It boasts an “Ask Sam” feature that allows users to resolve dilemmas by turning to Jackson for swift advice.

Creators Tim Schubert and Anthony Castoro believe Jackson is the ultimate voice of reason.

In fact, Castoro once used the “Ask Sam” device in the middle of a board meeting to help make business decisions.

They say the app comes in handy during awkward silences because Jackson always has something funny, witty, or truthful to say.

One-liners include: “Motherf■■■ing bullsh■t is what this is!,” and “I didn’t climb my way up the motherf■■■ing food chain to eat this sh■t” – perfect for when a friend cooks something awful.

A series of original pick-up lines from Jackson will be available next.
