"My, I bet you monsters lead interesting lives. I said to my girlfriend just the other day - Gee, I’ll bet monsters are interesting, I said. The places you must go and the places you must see, my stars! And I’ll bet you meet a lot of interesting people, too. I’m always interested in meeting interesting people."
As a kid I had no idea what the joke was here but I loved it so much.
To that: I’ve never bought it when executives would complain, “It’s too obscure, you need to make it relevant to today’s 18-34…” etc. Nonsense. A child of five can understand the dynamic here and that something funny is going on and still enjoy it. The kid doesn’t then complain to mother, “I know it’s funny but is it relevant to my age group?” Especially if there are older siblings laughing.
Bugs is a towering legend.
