Caddyshack is a landmark in American cinema. Rodney Dangerfield's performance as the obnoxious, wisecracking, mega rich slob Al Czervik is gold. That's right, gold. Dangerfield's performance and dialogue have forever changed the way men (and the occasional woman) communicate and bond with each other. The way a wild bonobo might share a juicy grub with it's mate men will quote Dangerfield's lines to each other until last call and well into the IHOP pancake breakfast. Who can forget these classics? "Oh, this is the worst-looking hat I ever saw. What, when you buy a hat like this I bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh? Oh, it looks good on you though." "Oh, this your wife, huh? A lovely lady. Hey baby, you must've been something before electricity." "You're a lot of woman, you know that? Yeah, wanna make 14 dollars the hard way?" "[to his Asian companion] I hear this place is restricted, Wang, so don't tell 'em you're Jewish, okay?" "(after meeting Judge Smails grandson) Now I know why tigers eat their young" "Hey, doll. Could you scare up another round for our table over here? And tell the cook this is low grade dogfood. I've had better food at the ballgame, you know? This steak still has marks from where the jockey was hitting it." Al Czervik is woven into our national fabric. He is an American icon of comedy. Please people, we must right this wrong. Please sign this petition and let the Academy know that we as a peaceful, gopher loving nation will not stand for this injustice any longer. Ask yourselves this "can you make a bullshot?" If you answered "can you make a shoe smell?" Then your path is clear. Stand up for America. Stand up for comedy. And always remember to be the ball. Thank you. The Dangerfield Nation
