Mongo

October 10, 2012

Alex Karras has passed on. I never watched him play football, and I’m too lazy to look up what else he did in sports, acting, or otherwise. But I do know that he played Mongo in Blazing Saddles. And that’s more than enough for me.

Let’s raise a schnitzengruben to Alex Karras (if it turns out that “schnitzengruben” is plural, then we’ll have to raise two).
