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.
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.

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.

Hmm. If I had to choose, Blazing Saddles and Dracula: Dead and Loving It.
