That was definitely one of the funniest interviews in all UM.

I always crack up at those two guys "sword fighting" myself--they look more like they're beating each other over the head with planks of wood while wearing painted garbage cans than anything else! I mean, to each his own...but geez..

Just to add: some of the 80's segments were funny to watch because of the fashion, and hairstyles. Rick Church's mullet for example, wow...that was the mother of all mullets.

I agree even some of the 90's segments had weird hair and clothes.

Kurt's father found some strange stuff in his son's room, for instance the knife made out of a deers' hoof. What was up with that?? I found that "artifact" disturbing.

UMfan, was it a knife made from a deer's hoof or was the handle made from an antler? I thought it was an antler.

If it's from a hoof, that's kinda weird, but knives made from antlers are common.

Come to think of it, people make all kinds of things out of deer hooves too. I've seen gun racks and coat hooks made out of them.

It was made from a small deer hoof.

Lol wow

I was going to post some comments in here about some moments I found funny and saw that I already had posted almost my entire list. I totally forgot I had posted these:

In the recreation they have the guy (who would be playing the son) sitting in a shadow, like that's how he would always be...partly shadowed, and then he gets all energetic when the dad answers correctly "YES!!". lol what the Hell was that phone call supposed to prove to the family anyway?

I chuckle at some of the Southernisms of the corageous and lucky guy who survived 4 days out on the water. "I dun swum till there wuddn't no swummin leff in me.."

During the Stanley Gryszxzicxkx segment, I crack up when the woman is all alone in the kitchen, checking the window and the masked bandit breaks through the door. If you watch the woman close, she really gets scared ****less by the guy and jumps faster than she's moved in years.

During the Joe Owens segment, the lady who treats it like its her big break and really delivers her line in an overly theatrical way always makes me laugh.
This last one really cracks me up.

Another one I thought was funny, even though the subject matter is horrific, was during the Pam Ellender segment when her dad utters the classic "This is just about as low as human be-inz can crawl...or furrow...where is they-err soul? Where is they-err humanity?" Not a funny sentiment but after watching it a half dozen times it starts to be funny.

I also crack the **** up at the roid rage exhibited by the guy who says "Aw Callie...I loves ya!" How he's all hopping around and freaking out.

I also laugh at the lady wearing the nun handkerchief, or whatever it is, who just absolutely refuses to admit that her bigamist husband conned her and ran away sticking her with some crap farm. She seemed very willing to take her back.

But can there be any more unintentional hilarity than the men who are suffering amnesia who always seem to somehow be under indictment or have charges pressing against them whereever they came from. These guys always seem so sincere about finding out who they are yet they never seem to happy to find out do they?

And it seems like it's always grand larceny or the like they're wanted for. It's like they've got a club or something.


I think a very underappreciated unintentionally funny moment is the ENTIRE re-enactment in the Sal Guardado segment. Not only is there grossly cliche "Native American" flute music playing through the whole thing, but the acting is horrendous. My personal favorite moments:

1. "Sal...Sally....That's neat!" Academy Award.

2. The fight over the van Sally's sister had borrowed:

In the whiniest, most childish tone an adult woman can muster:"No Sal, it's not yours! You can't take it!"

"...I'm tired of listenin' to all your lyin' excuses!" Indignant look


3. The argument that Lydia stumbles onto:

"I'm home!" (Everyone shuts up.)



The part of RS's narration where he says that Sally was killed with either a telephone cord or cat leash makes me laugh---certainly not over the murder at all, but the prospect of there really being such a thing as a cat leash.

I sort of thought the acting in the Ronnie Zamora was sort of funny because I grew up in New Mexico and it reminded me about a lot of the people I know.

Yeah, that was weird. Where the heck would you actually get something like that?

Remember those drawings Kurt supposedly made? Of knights and "medieval figures" with sword wounds spurting like geysers and all that? I had to admit I cracked up at how seriously they were taking those--lots of "normal" boys and adolescent males draw violent, "heroic" scenes all the time. It's just what our society has taught them to value--much like girls typically tend to sketch flowers and "pretty" things. I never thought that was ever an indicator of any strange behavior Kurt supposedly exhibited at all.

The Kurt McFall segment scared me when I was young, but upon re-watching recently I tend to agree with those of who find it...odd...to put it nicely.

The Tara Breckenridge segment, while very sad, has some really z-movie strip club acting. That's a hard one to watch.

In the Kristi Krebs segment, I have to give the actress playing Kristi a lot of credit for giving all she had on those breakdown scenes. That sobbing is off the hook!

The cheesy music in the UFO Oddysey segment always cracks me up. First the southern radio part and then when the DJ and his friend go out searching for a UFO the music sounds like its trying to be stealthy and it's just hilarious.
