Squeal! Squeal Like A Pig! (And take off them panties, too)

The Duel. A Flash feature. Actually, as I write this, I'm worried that it's lame. But I smiled and you don't have anything going on for the next three minutes, anyway.

Oh, it's lame.

And mildly amusing.

Reason: Unknown

Well, that certainly answered my most pressing question.

The General Lee AND Burt Reynolds!

Very silly, but not lame (and I'm a master of lame posts, and also, before today, the undisputed master of pre-apologizing for my posts).

On the good side, it used mutiple pop culture references to avoid lameness; on the bad side, it missed several possibilities for Comedy Gold, including (but not limited to) Burt Reynolds' toupee, and the final scene should've shown the KKKluckers burning a bucket.

(I'm sorry, should I have included a Spoiler Warning?)

We know, we know. Saying that all southerners are anthropomorphic banjo-playing squirrels is a gross generalization. Sure, the south has its share of anthropomorphic banjo-playing squirrels. However, there are worse anthropomorphic banjo-playing squirrels in Queens or South Boston. At least the anthropomorphic banjo-playing squirrels in the south are upfront about being anthropomorphic banjo-playing squirrels.

Your objections are well founded and I apologize to all southerners who are reading this. I shouldn't have given the sick bigot who fashioned this cruel tool of hate any more publicity.

Dang.

That was the best "Dukes of Hazzard" episode, ever.

sorry, but i gotta vote LAME. close, but nope. (at least i waited until way down here ...)

you start off with a squirrel and a pengiun playing banjos, and it's hard to lose, but the squeals were cheap and overplayed, and why the hell where the Duke boys chasing the pigs across the county line? i didn't stick around for the end, and that's a great song.

the best Dukes episode was with the aliens, imo.

I bumped into Deliverance the other day. I flipped to it just at the duel scene started. Quite interesting. I tivoed the rest and watched it. Great movie. Tricky, but I liked it. I thought the fact that they were in a river that was soon going to be a lake was interesting.
