sparky1013: Badgers?

Ah what the hell, SRM already put that song in my head this morning. And the headline quote was used in that same thread.

Anywhere else I would complain about a "gaping hand wound," but since I've been locked in solitary, I have quite frankly, grown to love it. Literally.

Hee Hee Hee. Badgers.

I'd post the screen cap here but it's too close to the end of the month and I don't know if my site could take the hit.

Snake!

I love that quote, but I don't understand why everyone always gets it wrong. The quote is from a 1948 movie starring Humphrey Bogart titled "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre". The line, as stated in the movie, is:

"Badges? We ain't got no badges! We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinking badges!"

Yes, that is the original quote, but I believe that the submitter was referencing the Weird Al movie "UHF". Please try to keep up.

Unless I have been gravely misled, I understand that badgers can be controlled with a good spoon-poking.

I hereby summon someone with PS loaded up (that is to say, not me) to do up a bunch of dancing badgers in little striped prison outfits, a la the dude from Cookie Crisp.

yeah, that'd be great.

Jabber: Epsilon

To complicate things even further, the "UHF" quote was probably not as much a reference to "...Sierra Madre" as it was to "Blazing Saddles".

Nothing! Absolutely nothing! STUPID! You're so STU-PIIIIIIIIIIID!
 
2005-10-25 01:38:50 PM  
The quote is also referenced in Blazing Saddles if I'm not mistaken.
/Let's play chess.

2005-10-25 01:49:12 PM  
Thanks Epsilon, I've always wanted to know where that came from originally. Quotes like that often get messed up, though. For instance, Bogart never actually said "Play it again, Sam." See the entry on the subject from the internet's most wonderful site (besides Fark.com, of course) here. Now, if only someone can tell me where "Is it safe?" came from. That drives me nuts.

Epsilon: I love that quote, but I don't understand why everyone always gets it wrong. The quote is from a 1948 movie starring Humphrey Bogart titled "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre".

First off: most people get it wrong as more of them have seen Blazing Saddles than Treasure, and it's "We don't need no stinking badges!" in that one. So blame Mel Brooks.

Secondly (and this is just random trivia): the quote is originally from the book that Treasure was based off of. (Same title, I believe, but I don't remember the author).

trinidad silva (raul of raul's wild kingdom) was killed by a drunk driver halfway through the shooting of UHF; subsequently a lot of planned scenes with him were dropped from the film.
