First, there is Hank Azaria as the half-naked, hot with huwatemalan-ness Agador Spartacus in The Birdcage. Azaria is always funny when he is half naked (see Claude in the otherwise crappy Along Came Polly), but his Agador is the pièce de résistance of flesh-exposing men, what with his rendition of “She Works Hard for the Money” and his inability to walk in shoes.

Even better is Agador’s hot homeland from which his powerful sexual magnetism arises.

Agador: Armand, why don’t you let me be in the show? Are you afraid of my huwatemalan-ness [Guatemalan-ness]?
Armand: Your what?
Agador: My huwatemalan-ness, my natural heat. You’re afraid I’m too primitive to be on the stage with your little estrogen rockettes, right?
Armand: You’re right. I’m afraid of your heat.

Next is probably the funniest fart scene ever filmed, the elevator scene in Revenge of the Pink Panther. Watch Peter Sellers’s eyes in this short clip.

Glark, noted fart expert, gives the prize to the bean scene from Blazing Saddles, a worthy choice, but when I went to look at it on youtube, I found this, which made my Trekkie self laugh even harder:

Borat’s mankini scene is the next great moment on the list. Only someone with the unselfconscious brio of Sacha Baron Cohen, a man who introduced the UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali as “Boutros Boutros Boutros-Ghali” on his show, could pull off this outfit, complete with socks and shoes.

Finally, following an appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher, pundit Andrew Sullivan seemed unaware that the cameras were still rolling (but surely he knew the studio audience was there!?) when he took a few moments to enjoy a deep massage of his butt.

Before he became head of the RNC, I only knew of Michael Steele as a guest on Real Time with Bill Maher. On the Annoying Guest Scale, he stood somewhere between David Frum and craphound Frank Luntz. But lately he has become much more entertaining.


Steele always works hard to identify with his audience. At a recent NRA conference, he showed a keen command of talking points and an uncanny ability to add together two premises that are so factually flawed that you have to clap your hands in wonder at the leap of logic it took to create the final sum.

Of course he repeated the NRA mantra that the government is going to take away their guns. Because you know it’s almost impossible to get your cold, dead hands on an AK-47 around here. But then he whipped his audience into a frenzy by showing them how the need for guns is more critical than ever. Echoing that brilliant statesman, Mitch McConnell, who said that Obama is going to let the Gitmo detainees–all 250 of them–run amok “in our neighborhoods,” Steele told them:

It is ironic, to say the least, that at the same time Democrats in Congress are threatening to deny Americans their second amendment right to own a firearm and defend their families and homes, they are considering bringing terrorists like 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and other Al Qaeda detainees to our communities once the President follows through on his campaign promise to close Guantanamo Bay.

Bravo, Michael Steele! When those detainees come a’creeping into our yards in the wee hours of the morning, we will all be ready, thanks to you.
