[Reet Pappin] Tell me, Betty. Has your husband always been this, well, ... bitter?
[Betty Armstrong] No, he wasn't at all. I think it's something new he's trying.
This is from the absurd The Lost Skeleton Returns Again, one of the gems I found on the new Amazon prime instant video. (Learning about this new benefit was a delight, since I've been a Prime subscriber for years to feed by reading habit.) I perked up when I heard Betty's response, which is a lovely Think, Try, Learn perspective. Not an experiment I personally want to try, though.
I love the work of this indie movie team, though I think the first movie, The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (official site here), was better. Here are a few gems on YouTube from this same team (I enjoy how they play with language):
- On bitterness: Bitterness... The Lost Skeleton Returns Again
- And I think this is brilliant: Tales From the Pub: "Message From Beyond"
I've embedded them below. You can find more at moontaurus's YouTube channel.
If this is your sort of humor, what else do you like? I need a lift!
