I like 'dem french fried pertaters!

This short spoof is a parody of the movies "Swingers" and "Sling Blade," both independent films released in 1996 through Miramax Pictures.

"Swing Blade" is about Karl Childers, the lovable retard from "Sling Blade," and his attempts to pick up chicks on the "Swingers" scene. In one very funny part - a spin on the popular phone call segment from "Swingers" - Karl leaves a woman some rather puzzling messages on her answering machine.

This is a short, funny and ultimately enjoyable little parody. It's nothing extremely funny, but if you ever happen to stumble across the "Swingers: Collector's Edition" DVD, you might as well check this out. If you've seen either film you'll definitely find it to be rather humorous.
