When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

David Huddleston, Mayor Olson Johnson in Blazing Saddles and the Big Lebowski, has passed away at 85. Terrific character actor.

Indeed, and always to be remembered for one of the most amazing and droll lines uttered across the entire Coen Brothers catalog....

I just want to understand this, sir. Every time a rug is micturated upon in this fair city, I have to compensate the owner?

He appeared once in a West Wing episode as a gun-totin' redneck senator. But I'll always remember his great part in Blazing Saddles. He had one of the best speeches:

I think we're all indebted to Gabby Johnson for clearly stating what needed to be said. I'm particularly glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed a courage little seen in this day and age... Our fathers came across the prairies, fought Indians, fought drought, fought locusts, fought Dix... remember when Richard Dix came in here and tried to take over this town? Well, we didn't give up then, and by gum, we're not going to give up now!
