Cleavon Little is (was) younger than John McCain.
Blazing Saddles was, hands-down, the funniest movie ever made. I’ve seen it more times than John McCain can count and, while it’s nearly impossible to pick a favorite line, the following one is right up there:
Bart: Are we awake?
Jim: We’re not sure. Are we… black?
Bart: Yes, we are.
Jim: Then we’re awake… but very puzzled.
(I wonder if there’s anyone else out there who’s similarly puzzled…)
I’m also partial to when Taggart and his men discover a tollbooth (in the middle of nowhere!) and he announces that “Someone has to go back and get a shitload of dimes.”
Funny, funny stuff.
