Slim Pickens as the pilot in "Dr. Strangelove" comes to mind as does his
immortal description of what takes place at the Number 6 dance that evening
in "Blazing Saddles!"

Seriously, somebody in Michigan needs to go have a serious talk with the
sponsor of this group at U of M and explain how badly they're screwing
things up on a worldwide basis.
