"In Sweden, however, the title literally translates as “Springtime For Hitler”. As a result of its success, all but two of Mel Brooks movies in Swedish have been given similar titles: “Springtime For Mother-In-Law” (The Twelve Chairs); “Springtime For The Sheriff” (Blazing Saddles); “Springtime For Frankenstein” (Young Frankenstein); “Springtime For The Silent Movies” (Silent Movie); “Springtime For The Lunatics” (High Anxiety); “Springtime For World History” (History of the World, Part I); “Springtime For Space” (Spaceballs); and “Springtime For The Slum” (Life Stinks)."

that’s fucking hilarious
"Then, I did a joke that turned the audience on this nervous kid: “I grew up a fat kid and I blame that on my parents. There are certain things you discipline your kid about, like “get your fingers out of that cookie jar!” or “get your fingers out of that light socket!” or “get your fingers out of your sister!”. The audience fucking gasped, then I said “Oh, come on, it’s okay. I don’t really have a sister….anymore at least. She committed suicide when we were kids. I guess I’ll never really know why. But I sure do miss her.” Then a guy in the back stood up and yelled “GET THIS FUCKING CREEP OUT OF HERE!!!!” Then everybody started yelling at me, I didn’t know what to do, so I bowed while saying, “I’m Jonah and I’m sorry.” Then dropped the mic and walked off stage. I never went back to that place ever again."
