Goonies Never Say Die! Happy 25th Birthday!
Fans of the cult classic drove to the remote location where the movie was filmed to celebrate the quarter of a century birthday as they do the Truffle Shuffle. We all have dug in our backyards looking for a box, or gold, or anything else under the earth, this is a monumental birthday.

Too much sex and dying. Sex while they're dying, and sexy dying, according to Mr. T. The A-Team is supposed to be good, clean family fun... NOT. Sorry, Mr. T. Sex and death sells! But really, Mr. T is awesome, fool.
