"Ethel, I just don't know what everybody's talkin' about. That new Mustang is the ugliest thing I've ever seen!"

"Now Billy Bob, Ford has treated us real good all these years, and you know it. If this is that Mustang, then I trust 'em.

Get me one soon as we get home!"

Actually that's Billy Bob and his frumpy wife Ethel in the middle of the line.

They're from Buffalo Flats, Iowa.

The people with the Queen Mary-sized baby stroller are Boris and Natasha (who else would be wearing a Russian fur hat like hers?), and they're pushing a dynamite-carrying midget disguised as a baby sucking a lollipop.

Where's Rocky & Bullwinkle when we need them?

"Where's Rocky & Bullwinkle when we need them?"

Probably answering fan mail from some flounder!

By the way, the man in front of Ethel and Billy Bob must suspect evil doings (at least of the everyday crime variety). He looks like he may be holding on to his wallet.

Where are those pinkertons?

Natasha: "Boris, we should blow up bomb now?"

Boris: "No Natasha! How many times I tell you? Have midget wait until see whites of eyes of moose and squirrel!"
