“Isn’t anybody going to help that poor man?”
Blazing Saddles (1974)
But of course you will. Of course you are going to say farewell to 2020 with a big Boom (not to be confused with today in History’s other Big Boom, On Pearl Harbor Observance Day 🚨), the timing is exquisitely awkward, or maybe even uncomfortably sweet, but The Song Remains The Same:
King : Hey, Taylor. How in the fuck you get here anyway? Why, you look educated.
Chris Taylor : I volunteered for it.
King : You did what?
Chris Taylor : I volunteered. I dropped out of college, and told them I wanted the infantry, combat, and Vietnam.
Crawford : You volunteered for this shit, man?
Chris Taylor : You believe that?
King : You’s a crazy fucker, giving up college.
Chris Taylor : It didn’t make much sense. I wasn’t learning anything. I figured why should just the poor kids go off to war and the rich kids always get away with it?
King : Oh, I see. What we got here is a crusader.
Crawford : Sounds like it.
King : Shit. You gotta be rich in the first place to think like that. Everybody know the poor are always being fucked over by the rich. Always have, always will.
