No Google involved in this case. I happened to know that due to a paper I helped my nephew write for a high school class. I had the same teacher years ago and I knew he hated Mel Brooks, hence the subject of the paper, Mel Brooks success. I couldn't resist the chance to get a shot in after all these years.

No worries as I fully understand. Never got the chance to hit my HS English teacher with something like this.

I would have had to use Google...I started going through the list and thought "Affleck? No Tony. Hugh Jackman? Don't think he's won a grammy..."

But Mel Brooks. That's awesome.
Being an adult doesn't mean you have to know what you're doing. It just means you have to look like you know what you're doing.

What sort of person hates Mel Brooks?

A sad, humorless individual. Had all the taunting coming.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.

Well, he was the piss boy in History of the World, Part 1.

If I were stranded on a desert isle complete with a home theatre rig I would not complain one bit if my only 2 discs were Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein.
