History of the World of Mel, Part I

The funniest 2,000-plus-year-old man on Earth has just produced the funniest DVD collection of his life in the universe.

I don’t want to give it away, but here are some choice Mel Brooks quotes:

“Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die.”
“Hope for the Best. Expect the worst. Life is a play. We’re unrehearsed.”

“I have always been a huge admirer of my own work. I’m one of the funniest and most entertaining writers I know.”

“If presidents can’t do it to their wives, they do it to their country. ”

“Look at Jewish history. Unrelieved lamenting would be intolerable. So for every ten Jews beating their breasts, God designated one to be crazy and amuse the breast-beaters. By the time I was five I knew I was that one.”

“It’s good to be the king.”
