So he left his imprint (way too overdue IMHO) in the concrete of the Chinese Theater in a way that you had to say “Yup! That is Mel.”
But what else would you expect from the guy who brought us:
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Werewolf?
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: What?
Igor: There, wolf. There, castle.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Why are you talking that way?
Igor: I thought you wanted to.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: No, I don’t want to.
Igor: [shrugs] Suit yourself. I’m easy.

But how did he do such fantastic stunts, with feet so small?
What!! The six fingered man still lives?!
You’re thinking the OTHER six-fingered man.
The one with six fingers on his RIGHT hand. 😉
TIL Mel Brooks has six fingers on his left hand.
It’s not mentioned in his Wikipedia page.
Fake finger… He wanted to do something nobody had done before. That’s Mel 😀
Being the first person to get your hands in concrete wearing a fake finger is significantly less interesting than having an extra finger on your left hand.
Funny that you posted this today. My oldest daughter just realized, and posted it to Facebook, that Mel Brooks Isn’t the same person as Mel Gibson. Seems she never understood why Mel Gibson looked so different in History of the World Part 1.
I swear I never dropped her on her head.
If you still have the bill from the hospital where she was born, you may get a refund 😀
Almost 19 years is a long time to keep a receipt.
Keep you firearms locked up……….
Most people don’t realize what kind of badass Mel Brooks was. During WWII he was combat engineer and diffused land mines. Being the consummate comedian, when the Germans set up loud speakers to blast American troops with Nazi propaganda, we worked engineers and signal corps to set up American loud speakers and play music by Jewish singers right back at the Germans.
My god I swear I learn something new every day…….
About damned time, Corporal!
First damned Combat Engineer I’ve ever seen with EXTRA fingers. Usually, if the count is off, they’re short some portion of their initial issue. . .
