Christopher Walken. In the realm of FARK, his name is immortal. In the annals of Saturday Night Live, he is a god. Some know him from movies like The Deer Hunter, or The Dead Zone. Others, like my sons, know him from Fatboy Slim’s video “Weapon of Choice” and the infamous “Cowbell Skit” (good luck finding a legal version of that one.)
I know this is true, because my stepson was just watching Mousehunt, and when Walken came on the screen as Caesar the Exterminator, he said, “Hey, isn’t that the guy who played Bruce Dickinson?”
I’ve had enough of these little reality hits to create a new blog category called “Signs o’ the Times,” of which this is the first post. More to come, I’m sure.
