Blazing Saddles Episode 9: Send wire, main office, tell them I said, “Ow!”

Today we continue with Bart and Charlie pulling themselves the rest of the way out of the quicksand. They are tired and gasping for breath after drudging through the mire. Taggart, now noticing the two lying on the ground, derides them for lolly-gagging and trying to get a tan. He tosses a shovel down and tells them to put it to good use. Bart, unable to take it anymore, grasps the shovel. Charlie tries to convince him to not do it! However, there is no stopping Bart who whacks Taggart on the back of the head as he is dictating a telegram to the main office. In fact, his exact words are, “Send a wire, main office, tell them I said OW!” The minute ends with Taggart, his head in bandages below his hat, telling Hedley Lamarr about the need for the railroad to go through Rock Ridge.

Our guest today is professor Robert E.G. Black. By day he teaches classes in communication, while at night he is behind podcasts such as Michael Myers Minute, Dave Made a Minute and The Room Minute.
