All criminals are not created equal, nor are their crimes.
And I’m reminded of a certain exchange from one of my favorite movies -
Hedley – Qualifications?
Bart – Stampeding cattle.
Hedley – That’s not much of a crime.
Bart – Through the Vatican?
Hedley – Kinkyyyy. Sign here.
Funny beyond funny that movie. Harvey Korman is pure genius, as are Wilder and Little in their respective roles.
Taggart: What do you want me to do, sir?
Hedley Lamarr: I want you to round up every vicious criminal and gunslinger in the west. Take this down.
Hedley Lamarr: I want rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Methodists.
Taggart: [finding pen and paper] Could you repeat that, sir?
I reckon that there is the Group W bench…
