You'll be glad to know that I plan to write about both "You Nazty Spy!" and "A Plumbing We Will Go" when I reach 1940 in my world-famous blog -- although the blog entry, like my thinking, will be strictly black-and-white ...

You know, it occurs to me that in that opening scene if you substitute Big Three Automakers for war profiteers, you'd have a very contemporary little movie ...

Oh, and did you note that this short was co-written by Clyde Bruckman, who co-wrote and co-directed Buster Keaton's classic, The General -- of which we were coincidentally speaking on that world-famous website, A Mythical Monkey Writes About The Movies?

You will likely be amazed, but I did note that, thanks to the power of the Wiki.

You're the John Stockton of blogging, my man.

And the only guy I know who ever accomplished the triple double ...

I'm always loath to discuss it, because of the spouses, ex-spouses, and children involved.

Although, not to brag or nothin' but it was the infamous quadruple-double.


I kid


Oh, wait.

By the "John Stockton" comment, did you mean I'm a white guy in too-short shorts?

Mister Parker said...

From what I hear, any shorts you wear are the too-short shorts. Know what I mean?

Fortunately, I don't know this for a fact ...
