I'm watching Blazing Saddles on Comedy Central, perhaps my favorite comedy movie of all time. Usually it's compeltely unwatchable on TV, with every third word or so offensive to *someone*, but I have to say that the folks at The House South Park Built are doing a pretty good job. I will argue with anyone that this is the only movie that can do racial humor and pull it off. People who use the term "Equal Opportunity" need to give this a watch; never has the entire population of the world been insulted so equally.
My opinion aside, here are some of the words they have left in that are usually omitted:
And some that have been removed:
-The line "think of your secretary" Hedley Lammar's advice when William J. LePetomane (Governor) is trying to put his pen in the pen holder
-Gabby Johnson's incomprehensible "frontier gibberish" that sounds something like "rabbash"
I'm dying to see how they handle the schnitzengruben scene. But I will commend their choice of dubbing "imbicile" over "asshole". It almost worked.
