Years ago I would drive my friends nuts by filling the cassettes of their answering machines with fake commercials and promos whenever they went out of town. One of them was a proposed remake of The Wizard of Oz, with Snoop Dogg playing the part of the Scarecrow, singing,

"I'd be feelin' fizzle
And that'd be f'shizzle
If I only had a brizzle!"

That joke is as dated as answering machines with cassettes, while Mr. Bolger's performance remains timeless.

Probably just as well they did away with that song about the kid who needed a kidney though.

"I can't give you a brain, but I can give you a diploma!"

One of my favourite (likely mis-remembered) lines from that movie.

The scene is even funnier in the original book. The Wizard removes the stuffing from Scarecrow's head and replaces it with bran. He then says, "I've given you a lot of bran new brains."

I prefer the MC900ft Jesus version.

I'd be worthy urv'ya?
