The tough part about writing a car blog is not including all the other crap we find whilst searching for the prime content you pay so dearly absolutely nothing for. Stretching the inclusion criteria a bit, we can’t help bring you infamous “You see, Larry…” scene from The Big Lebowski. John Goodman smashing a Vette in misguided anger is funny stuff, but it gets even better when done in the Shakespearean verse…
You see, Adam Bertocci’s gone and re-written The Big Lebowski as The Most Excellent Comedie and Tragical Romance of Two Gentlemen of Lebowski. That’s right, the cult-classic revived as a five-act Shakespearean play. Seriously. We follow the misadventures of “The Knave”, and his pals Sir Walter of Poland and Sir Donald of Greece. On to the fateful scene:
Behold thy car, the Corvette, crimson-stain’d,
And see what befalls sinners evermore.
[He raises his sword, and smites the car]
This befalleth when thou firk’st a stranger ‘twixt the buttocks, Laurence! Understand’st thou? Dost thou attend me? Seest thou what happens, Laurence? Seest thou what happens, Laurence? Seest thou what happens, Laurence, when thou firk’st a stranger ‘twixt the buttocks?!
We scrolled long and hard to get you that paragraph, half hoping it would contain a reference to “when thou find’st a stranger amongst the alps”.
Seriously, go read it: Two Gentlemen of Lebowski
