quotes that live on

Once in awhile, everyone should watch Blazing Saddles again. It is funny and has some lines that hit home hard even this many years later. Try this one:
What did you expect? "Welcome, sonny?" "Make yourself at home?" "Marry my daughter?" You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons.
We laugh over that one a lot :)

I should add for those who might not have seen it, you cannot be politically correct or you will be infuriated as it is not PC for then or even less for today. ;)

Everybody should see it and if someone is offended...good. They should examine the honesty of the joke lines. The jab is at us and our silos of blindness.
The comments of the political candidates on the nightly news are such a perfect fit to Blazing Saddles.

Mel Brooks would be tarred and feathered if he made this movie today.

He said he could not say the same words when he did his comedy stand up routine but he said the same things in it. He ridicules what is ridiculous-- seems fair to me. He just doesn't have a partisan agenda.
