He’s Absoltively Posulutely Right

Mel Brooks said in a BBC radio interview recently…

We have become stupidly politically correct, which is the death of comedy.
It’s not good for comedy,” he added. “Comedy has to walk a thin line, take risks. Comedy is the lecherous little elf whispering in the king’s ear, always telling the truth about human behavior.

This would NOT be allowed to be produced today but it was comic genius

My favorite Mel Brooks movie, hands down, no argument, is High Anxiety from the
Psycho-Neurotic Institute for the Very, Very Nervous.

I suspect most others would say Blazing Saddles would be tops on their list. That is genius. The Producers. I’m lazy blogging today from outside, getting YOU all do do the work by adding your favorite Mel Brooks film. Thanks in advance for making my day easier! 🙂

  1. Love the Mel Brooks films – recently saw Blazing Saddles again, and it’s still as funny as the first time! High Anxiety, Young Frankenstein, etc – all great!

      1. I still laugh until my face hurts when I watch the scene in Young Frankenstein where Peter Boyle & Gene Hackman sing & dance to Puttin on the Ritz & the fart scene in Blazing Saddles . Who can’t get laugh out of farts?!!!

        Can you imagine the reaction today to Springtime for Hitler & Germany? (The Producers)

        The two things I miss the most are common sense & a sense of humor.

        1. Sooooo true. I look at the sadsack liberals who spend all day every day hating and wonder how they are even alive. Laughter is everything. Everything.

  2. Breaking: McCain says he’ll vote no on GOP healthcare bill.

    That means Obama care will stay law of the land because the Rs can’t get enough vote now that McCain is out. and I bet no tax plan will pass either this year so Trump goes down with the worst R Congress ever. The Do Nothings. I am furious.

    1. I heard. I’m NOT shocked. McCain hates Trump – we’ve talked about this here before. There’s some deep revenge going on. What I can’t understand is why McCain can’t see beyond his hate of Trump for the greater good of the country.

      Agree that nothing will get done on the tax reform either. The GOPe needs to be drained, seriously.

      1. The fat lady doesn’t even need to sing. It’s dead.

      2. What I can’t understand is why McCain can’t see beyond his hate of Trump for the greater good of the country

        Easily answered. McInsane is the very definition of a RINO. Beyond that he’s a very warped malignant narcissist. I often wonder whether he wasn’t in fact turned by the VCong during his long stay at the Hanoi Hilton.

        1. I think we all have those same questions running in our head.
          Hey, while you’re here- any 311 on your bungalow in Islamorada? Last I heard no one had seen it first hand to verify it was still standing. We hope so and wish you a thousand years of good fishing!!

        2. My broker stopped by when she returned from evac in the panhandle and she shot a few photos showing what appears to me to be only minor damage to a Lanai over the small back “yard”. There was no flooding bayside and I’m ten feet above mean sea level and 3 feet above flood. Its a one level concrete house and has survived 5 prior hurricanes. My instincts in buying that house were right on the money!!!

        1. Trump mentioned McCain is his rally in Alabama last night and the whole audience booed. Not to mention Arizona’s Obamacare premiums went up 116%. Guess McCain only cares about himself. To think I voted for McCain in 2008 – makes me ill.

  3. Young Frankenstein is my favorite. No, wait. maybe it’s Blazing Saddles. Possibly the Producers. All so deliciously politically incorrect. And, all so deliriously funny.
    Nasty day along my coast. Power was out for a while very early today. We noticed clocks blinking this morning. Great surf- and we rarely get more than a ripple. Pockets of heavy rain, downed tree limbs, puddles make for a gloomy afternoon.

    1. All good choices.

      Bummer your Friday isn’t as perfect as it is here. I saw footage from MVY that they are getting wind and rain too. Hope your Saturday and Sunday are sunny.

      1. Summer of 2016 was beautiful and boring. Sunny day after sunny day really bothered this New England gal. Where was the variety I expected? It’s cold and raw now but this won’t last. It may hit 90 on Sunday. Typical N.E. weather.
        But, I hope we have a nice weekend, too.
