Every Day, MST3K

Watch Out For Snakes!

My Favorite Skit

If there is one thing that MST3K always had going for it, it was the zaniness of the skits that would fill time between the movie. There are literally hundreds to choose from and many are downright hilarious in the way that they were conceived and acted. However, I have to nominate the Sven and Ole joke from The Sword and the Dragon as being one of the funniest things they ever did. Not only does it take four and a half minutes for the joke to actually work, it’s the fact that when it comes together, it is sooo worth it. The joke is done in an Ingmar Bergman-esque fashion, meaning there are many pauses, long pans and it is in black and white. I don’t know, maybe I’m just a sucker for a Sven and Ole joke being from Minnesota, but for whatever reason, this made me fall off my chair with laughter. Click to watch.
