Blazing Saddles?

Can someone tell me what is so funny about the Beans song? I must be dense or it's the two blows to the skull I received in childhood.

Hi, Sheriff, here's an apple pie. Sorry about the "up yours, edited due to mods enforcing rules and probably not understanding this is a movie quote so I don't get banned."

I first thought he said SPAWNER ...in the game of life. What the heck? It changed the aura of the film until I got the script.

Beans song? What beans song?

The beans scene, where they're sitting around the campfire, eating beans, and farting, and then ask for some more beans? You don't see the crude humor in that? Are you kidding?

That's what I'm saying. Cowboys around the campfire are already crude, already fart, already act stupid (in a way), already eat beans, already sing stupid songs when drunk. Where is the situational offset that brings about the unsuspected disparity that makes one laugh? It was like getting into my car and starting it up. That happens every day. Dang, I still don't get it!!!

That shit may happen, but how many movies have you seen where they actually show it? And it's not like it's once or twice; it's exaggerated for comedic effect.

Yes, I'm a big fan of camp, 60's TV, Beverly Hillbillies, Gilligan's Island, Batman, Get Smart... and Monty Python.
To make that scene work there has to be another element added that makes the fart stand out as more focused or different. The banality of a cowboy fart is not funny. You now why? Because they don't care if they fart amongst themselves. As a comedic technique, I think it does not cut the cheese.

But they did stand out. It wasn't just one fart, or two, or three. It was loud fart after loud fart after loud fart, and it was bad enough that Taggart did care. I think that movie holds a record for most farts in a scene. Correct me if I'm wrong.

The sheriff is a ni-DONG.

No The sheriff is a ni-DONG.


He said the sheriff is near!!!


Some people might thinks its racist......kinda hard when Richard Pryor co-wrote it.

The satire is the foundation for the comedy.
