For fans of Mel Brooks and in particular his film Blazing Saddles, there
is a much more subtle joke that follows the same theme as the infamous
camp fire/beans scene. That is the joke of name of the character played
by Mel Brooks himself; Governor LePetomane. I have a book on the life
of Le Petomane, just in case anyone is interested in learning more about
one of France's more....interesting.....artists.

Though we are not now that strength, which in old days moved earth and heaven,
that which we are, we are. One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time
and fates, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield.
