    Funny song by Eric Idle from "Life of Brian"..

    A little lesser known film, "The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai" (Across the Eighth Dimension). It was somewhat of a "cult" film for my friends and I, growing up. Kind of like "Rocky Horror Picture Show" was for those before me.

    Diverting to TV series, if you have not seen the New Zealand series "The Almighty Johnsons" you are missing out, IMO. I give it 5 Eagles.

    Coming in, barely, at 8 Bogeys, "Tiger King".

    (Sidenote, I just checked on line, the Buckaroo Bonzai Blue Ray DVD is selling, on Amazon, for $168.95!!! I wonder how much I can sell copies of mine?)

    Peter Weller, John Lithgow, Jeff Goldblum, Christopher Lloyd, Ellen Barkin....Now I want to go watch it - LOL- Guess it is popcorn tonight.

    EDIT: Why is it that I keep thinking DuFuss might be in the June issue of "THE INCREDIBLE HOPERMAN"?

    CANADIANS....

    The President of the United States was in the Oval Office wondering which country to invade next, when his telephone rang.

    "Hallo, Mr. President" a heavily accented voice said. "This is Archie, up ere at the Harp Seal Pub in Badger's Cove, Newfoundland, Canada eh? I am callin' to tells ya dat we are officially declaring war on ya!"

    "Well Archie," the President replied, "This is indeed important news! How big is your army?"

    "Right now," said Archie, after a moment’s calculation "there is myself, me cousin Harold, me next-door-neighbor Mick, and the whole dart team from the pub. That makes eight!"

    The President paused. "I must tell you Archie that I have one million men in my army waiting to move on my command."

    "Holy jeez," said Archie. "I'll have ta call ya back!" Sure enough, the next day, Archie called again. “Mr. President, the war is still on! We have managed to acquire some infantry equipment!"

    "And what equipment would that be Archie?” the President asked.

    "Well sir, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Harry's farm tractor."

    The President sighed. "I must tell you Archie, that I have 16,000 tanks and 14,000 armored personnel carriers. Also I've increased my army to one and a half million since we last spoke."

    Lard T'underin' bye", said Archie, I'll be getting back to ya."

    Sure enough, Archie rang again the next day. "Mr. President, the war is still on! We have managed to git ourselves airborne! We up an' modified Harrigan's ultra-light wit a couple of shotguns in the cockpit, and four byes from the Legion have joined us as well!"

    The President was silent for a minute then cleared his throat. "I must tell you Archie that I have 10,000 bombers and 20,000 fighter planes. My military complex is surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And since we last spoke, I've increased my army to TWO MILLION!"

    "Jumpins," said Archie,” I’ll have ta call youse back."

    Sure enough, Archie called again the next day. "Mr. President! I am sorry to have to tell you dat we have had to call off dis 'ere war."

    "I'm sorry to hear that" said the President. "Why the sudden change of heart?"

    Well, sir," said Archie, "we've all sat ourselves down and had a long chat over a bunch of pints, and come to realize dat dere's no way we can feed two million prisoners…

    Thank you. I usually do when I am cutting and pasting. 

    The joke is not of my authorship. I did make one change, but it was unimportant to the joke. (I removed the name of the President to change it generically. No, it was not the current or immediately prior thereto).

    I just came upon it and thought it was hilarious and wanted to share it.
