Blazing Saddles Episode 51: Sorry about the, "Up yours..."

May 6, 2019

We open with Bart lamenting he will not be given credit for inventing the Candygram. As he and Jim are talking, there is a tap at the window of the sheriff's office. Bart lifts the shade and opens the window. The old woman, who had been mean to him earlier in the day, is standing there. She has a fresh apple pie with her. She starts off saying sorry about the, "Up yours..." She says she baked the pie as a way of saying thank you for defeating the horrible Mongo. She then leaves and Bart shuts the window. A moment later there is another tap and he goes back to the window. The old woman is back and she says she hopes he has the good decency not to mention to anyone they spoke. He smiles and agrees, wishing her a good night. He then tells Jim he is rapidly becoming an underground success in town. The Waco Kid adds, in twenty-five years he might be able to shake their hands in broad daylight.

Today’s guests are Dave Robinson and Ben Ford. Ben started podcasting in 2012 on the video game show, The Same Coin, while Dave started just a couple of weeks later on 80’s Picturehouse, chatting about movies and music from that wild decade. Both podcasts finished in 2017, but thanks to the 60 Minutes With podcast that began in 2014, podcasters from both shows continue to put an eclectic mix of shows into peoples ears, covering movies, music, television, video games, interviews, reviews and more! Some may call that being a jack of all trades and master of none, whereas they prefer to look at it as being a buffet of aural entertainment where you can pick what you enjoy. Ben and Dave can be found together on the 60 Minutes With ‘ClintCast’ series of shows.
