The guy who yells that is the guy who played Francis in Pee-wee's Big Adventure.

It's like eating a spoonful of Drano. Sure, it'll clean you out, but it'll leave you feeling hollow inside.

Well... two can play at that game!

in those days, there was a regular group of ex-players and minor leaguers that made the rounds when a production required a realistic baseball sequence.

Well, neat. I wonder if that still happens.

I love that movie. I'm disappointed the article didn't mention when the queen found a human finger with a ring still on it in her hot dog.

“He really loved that hand farter,” Banks said of his father. “He had me go and get two hand farters for him.”

This is the delightful end-of-week read I didn’t know I needed! Thanks for sharing this fantastic article.

God I love this movie. I was 16 and a friend and I decided to go to the movies and the Roxy was showing a double-feature in some sort of two-for-one deal which our broke asses though was just perfect. They were showing A Fish Called Wanda and The Naked Gun. I hadn't heard much about either movie, but I sort of remembered that The Naked Gun was done by the same guys who did Airplane! so I figured it was worth a go. We duly bought a big bag of candy each to tide us over and went in.

When we came out, we were exhausted. And I can't tell if it was just the humour or if the sugar buzz helped, but both of us had really sore ribs from laughing. Literally aching.

Ah, happy days!

Leslie Nielsen was such a treasure. I miss him.

Also, I met Reggie Jackson in 1999. He was nice.

The series starred Leslie Nielsen as Lt. Frank Drebin

Ahem. That's Sergeant Frank Drebin, Detective Lieutenant, Police Squad, thank you very much.

I liked the show about 10,000 times more than the movies.
Mrs. Twice : Oh, poor Ralph! And what about my daughter? What am I going to tell her?

Capt. Ed Hocken : Yeah, you're gonna have to tell her something. Tell her he went on a long trip.

Det. Frank Drebin : No wait a minute, how about a big monster came and took him to daddy heaven?

Det. Frank Drebin : [Mrs Twice starts sobbing louder] Nah...

Capt. Ed Hocken : What about this: he threw himself on a grenade and saved the battalion. Yeah, that's it.

[Mrs. Twice starts sobbing stronger]

Det. Frank Drebin : No, no, wait a minute, he was killed by a left wing insurgence from Paraguay?

Det. Frank Drebin : [Mrs. Twice is sobbing uncontrollably now] No, Bolivia.

Capt. Ed Hocken : I got it! I got it, he, he was traded to the Cubs for Reggie Jackson.

"Mrs. Nordberg, I think we can save your husband's arm. Where would you like it sent?"

"Who are you, and how did you get in here?"

"I'm a locksmith. . . and, I'm a locksmith."
