For (verbally) smashing right-wing clown Bill O' Reilly across the face with a 2 x 4 of a column in the Chicago Sun-Times. Seems that Billo is all upset that the Sun-Times is dropping his lying, ranting column from the newspaper. O'Reilly is making dire threats because of this. Ebert's reply is priceless. And for me, the punch line is classic:
Bill, I am concerned that you have been losing touch with reality recently. Did you really say you are more powerful than any politician?
That reminds me of the famous story about Squeaky the Chicago Mouse. It seems that Squeaky was floating on his back along the Chicago River one day. Approaching the Michigan Avenue lift bridge, he called out: Raise the bridge! I have an erection!
