"Everything you like to do is wrong."At that point, you know there is a major problem with your understanding of "right" (to say nothing of "wrong").w/v: blimbe. High on anyone's wrong list.
I can't see the video because I'm at work, but the phrase "Everything you like to do is wrong" this sounds about right in the nanny state. Thinking about it, I even found myself muttering a prayer yesterday:Now I lay me down to sleepI pray the Lord my soul to keepIf I should die before I wakethat's one escape from the nanny state!
W.C.'s follow on line is: "According to you everything I like to do is either illegal, immoral, or fattening." Which is about as timeless and accurrate as you can get.
"A woman drove me to drink and I never even thanked her."

W.C. Fields was a genius, (and one of the world's greatest jugglers...he toured for years in vaudeville as a juggler, where he began adding humorous repartee to his act, which led to his evolution into a comedic performer).
Update to his gravestone:All in all, I'd rather be here than in the Nanny State.
I'm amazed that he was and is caricatured as a fat man, but he really is almost thin by today's standards.

Skyler said:I'm amazed that he was and is caricatured as a fat man, but he really is almost thin by today's standards.Stuff like this didn't help.
Before we decide how timeless his character was about the nanny state, it helps to put this particular Field's character in context.Charles, thank you for that link. If seems to flesh out what we might not have known from Althouse's 18 second snapshot.
The man was clearly very talented at what he did.What a shame that the path of his characters coincided with his real life love of the whiskey.
So the Fields line would have been the inspiration for the song.
"What elephant?"Best film line ever.
"I always carry a bottle of whiskey in case I should see a snake, which I also carry."
"...I may be drunk, but you're crazy. Tomorrow I'll be sober and you'll be crazy for the rest of your life!". His most classic line IMO.
"I'm amazed that he was and is caricatured as a fat man, but he really is almost thin by today's standards."In his last few films (The Bank Dick, Never give a Sucker An Even Break) he's much rounder, but in the early thirties he's fairly trim and in his silents he even does a fair amount of physical comedy-- in Running Wild he's a milquetoast who winds up running through the streets roaring like a lion. Quite surprising given the standard image...
You couldn't juggle at the level he did for most of his professional life and be truly overweight or unfit.All in all one of the brilliant comedic stars of all time.I also am struck by the fact that he never engaged in mean "edgy" humor, but those were, unfortunately different times.
"Don't drink water. Fish fuck in it."W.C. Fields
William Claude Dukenfield's [w.C. Fields] Law: If it's worth winning, it's worth cheating.I give that one to every one of my classes every year. If it's worth anything, someone will cheat to win.Human nature.
