Worship the truck farmer! Bow down before him!
26 February 2002 | by (The cold northern region) – See all my reviews

An interesting little short about the exploitative system of the 1930's-50's that used cheap Mexican workers (that "cross the border on temporary work permits to *help* with the harvest"). Between the excessive chemicals and the water hose (that will later be used to beat back the workers), there's no end to the laughs when MST:3K features this before "I Accuse my Parents." Great lines abound, such as "A preteen is put to work. Her Beauty will soon fade" and "It's Killdozer! Clint Walker, no!"
