Funny Quotes From Blazing Saddles
Blazing Saddles is considered one of the funniest movies of all time and one of Mel Brooks' best. I disagree, but many others think this is true. There are definitely some humorous lines in the film but, even though it's suppose to be making fun of racists, it still comes off as racist. I can't handle the language. However, during the time this comedy was released, I assume it was all seen as in good nature. So go ahead, read on below for some funny quotes from Blazing Saddles.
