I love every minute out of that short. Why? Let me explain. It gives us a simple story, a cop who questions a bad guy who did something bad, seems familiar? That's because it's meant to be like that! Lynch is exposing that cliche dialogue scene, which is used in every crime movie. This quick scene uses absurd to critique the language of cinema and give us some good laughs.

Of course there are people who don't like his humor, but I'd heard they've been seen with chickens.
