video of the week rodney dangerfield s guide to auto repair

Reading about yet another yahoo automotive technician destroying a sports car on a joyride today, I was reminded of this classic.

Spend a few minutes this afternoon laughing along with the late, great Rodney Dangerfield, Bubba Smith, Morgan Fairchild, and former NFL'er Dick Butkus. My Chicago bias is showing here but may I point out that Butkus, if you're wondering what he's up to these days, is a fun follow on Twitter.

Speaking of fun, have a laugh or two. Make sure your favorite mechanic sees this.

    1985. Most of you guys were just starting graduate school back then.

      You don't say. I know a certain somebody who was already, in 1985, at 31 years of age, already three years a tenure-track ENgineering Professor in the nation's top (according to a 2022 ranking) public University, and just reappointed with flying colors. Keep your day job, gambling was not meant for you. BTW, I doubt most here ever SAW, much less attended, any Grad School, even at your alma mater, Tin Roof University.

    As with Office Space, that Dangerfield piece is more documentary than comedy.

    It occurs to me that the automotive repair I did this week would have gone much more quickly if I were working on that Nova.
