I’ve been a fan of Jeff Foxworthy for years, but I happened to catch an episode of his new show called Blue Collar TV the other night and I laughed so hard I was in pain. The show is Foxworthy with fellow comedians Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy and it shows on The WB on Friday nights. This past week’s episode was called “Education” and involved one really funny sketch featuring a spelling bee where the participants were supposed to spell “engine.” The first contestant asked “You mean like ‘Cowboys and Injuns’?” Good one.
But the part that made me laugh so hard was a spoof of America’s Funniest Home Videos. Think about how many videos you’ve seen on AFV that culminate with some poor sap getting whacked in the crotch with a golf club, baseball bat, farm implement, child’s fist/foot, or any other blunt instrument. That’s what this spoof was. It involved Jeff Foxworthy hitting Bill Engvall in the crotch with a shovel over and over and over. I was laughing so hard I could barely keep my eyes open. I was able to get a copy of the show and one frame from it is posted above. I have watched it about 10 times now and I just can’t stop laughing. I have now added this show to my weekly watch list. I can’t wait until the next episode.
After watching that episode, I remembered that I had borrowed the DVD of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie from my mother, so I popped it in and it was equally funny. They have a sequel coming out on Dec. 7. I’ll be sure to get it.
