    It's on AMC now, and I can only compare it to that Monty Python crap.

    Excuse me while I whip this out ... You're nuts.

    Just not a fan. Bleh.

    A little too far across the silly line, for me.

    Wow, a Blazing Saddles slam and a Monty Python slam.
    I must respectfully disagree with you and fart in your general direction.

    I don't think I got a "harrumph!!!" out of you. :eek:

    Can someone explain it to me? 'Cause I don't get it.

    What's next, someone who hasn't seen the Godfather movies?

    I will say Blazing Saddles is only my second-favorite Brooks movie, behind Young Frankenstein.

    It's just funny. But I think it might be more that you need to remember the times. I think the humor was a little more shocking when those movies (inc. Python) came out. But I think they stand up pretty well.

    Are you watching the censored version, or the proper one?

    Well, it's on AMC, and it's censored. I mean, I can figure out the bleeps, and they don't make it that much better.

    This probably isn't in the censored one. Speaking of not being able to do jokes today, not sure if rape jokes would be allowed.

    Taggart: I got it! I got it!
    Hedley Lamarr: You do?
    Taggart: We'll work up a Number 6 on 'em.
    Hedley Lamarr: [frowns] "Number 6"? I'm afraid I'm not familiar with that one.
    Taggart: Well, that's where we go a-ridin' into town, a-whompin' and a-whumpin' every livin' thing that moves within an inch of its life. Except the women folks, of course.
    Hedley Lamarr: You spare the women?
    Taggart: Naw, we rape the shit out of them at the Number Six Dance later on.
    Hedley Lamarr: Marvelous!

    [Bart reaches for the pen... revealing his black hands]
    Jim: [quickly] Why, Rhett! How many times have I told you to wash up after weekly cross burning?
    [licks his fingers, then rubs Bart's hand]
    Jim: See, it's coming off.
    [Taggart whips off Bart's hood]
    Bart: And now, for my next impression... Jesse Owens.
