** RuleOfFunny. This troper had seen BlazingSaddles over a hundred times over forty years and not picked up that line--it always sounded like he was just roaring something incomprehensible. When I watched it with a group with the subtitles and finally realized how Hedley Lamar ended his rant, I laughed so hard I nearly broke my chair. [[DontExplainTheJoke Some things are just damned funny.]]

* Why didn't Hedley just pay the people of Rock Ridge to let them build the railroad through their town? It would have been less of a hassle than throwing bandits at it and having them burn it down.

* When Mongo is tormenting the bar patrons by squishing them behind a piano, there's still one who's sitting out still having a drink and seemingly oblivious to Mongo's rampage. What's his deal, and why did Mongo leave him alone?
