Announcer 3: This morning's wacky feature - Porgy and Mudhead in High School
Madness with Dave Casman as Porgy and Joe Bergman as Mudhead
He's a spy and a girl delighter,
He's just a student like you.
If you're looking for a Captain of the Ringball Team,
You can bet he won't be there.
You'll find him pa-popping off at Pop's Sodium Shoppe,
Tr-trailing a red, with red hair.
Just a student like you!
Porgy: Like me?!
Just a student like you!
Father: Stop singing and finish your homework!
Just a student like you! ooooooooooo...
Mother: Adolf come and get it! Your clamcakes are getting damp.
Father: 10 - 4 Eleanor
[Door Slam and Footsteps]
Father: Whew! Defoliating a victory garden certainly works up an appetite.
Mother: You sit down, father, and dig right in.
Father: That's right! This afternoon I'll be able to start digging the pit.
If I can get any work out of that boy of yours I can have the bunker finished by
election day. Where is Porgy anyway?
Mother: He's up in his room, helping Porcelin make the bed.
Porcelin: Oh Porgy, Oh my, oh my, oh my!
Mother: Porgy... Porgy Tirebiter!
Porgy: Co.. eh... Coming mother!
Mother: He's so good with the servants, Fred.
Father: Stop calling me Fred. My name's Adolph.
Porgy: Bombs away, Dad. Morning, Mom.
Mother: Morning, son.
Porgy: Oh, hot dog! Groat cakes again. Heavy on the 30 weight, Mom.
Father: Don't, don't eat with your hand, son. Use your entrenching tool.
Porgy: Ah, Gee, Dad. I'm just trying to save time. It isn't everyday a guy
graduates from high school.
Father: Ha ha ha! How many times have I heard that before...
Mother: Well you boys fight it out among yourselves.
Father: Ok mother!
[Sounds of a Fist Fight]
Mother: Oh, my, my look at the time - I've got to dress for my bridge club.
Porgy: Gee, Mom. Isn't that bridge built yet?
Father: No son, Uh! and it won't be until free hands on both sides of the big
ditch can press the same button at the same time.
Porgy: Ok, Dad, I give! Oh, boy! Can I eat my breakfast now?
Father: Only if you stay out of trouble, boy. Your shennanigans can cost me
Porgy: Oh, come on Dad. No Irishman can stop you from getting to be [garbled]
doggonner this time. You're a natural.
Father: Don't wolf your food.
[Car Horn Honking]
Porgy: Oh, Oh, there's Mudhead. Graduation here I come! So long, Dad! Keep
[Footsteps - Door Slams]
Father: Oh, that son of mine.
Mother: He's not your son, Fred.
Father: Stop torturing me, Ethel.
Porgy: Come on, step on it, Mudhead.
Mudhead: Oh, I'd love to Porgy, but I got my two tones to the floor boards
Porgy: Well, Ok, then we could take the shortcut through Frogtown.
Mudhead: Aw reet! We could stop off at Pop's and dig some jugs.
Porgy: Some what?
Mudhead: Oh, that Louise Wong's got a balcony you could do Shakespeare from.
Porgy: Oh, not now, Mudhead! They need me at the last meeting of the
Mudhead: I didn't know you masturbated.
Porgy: Aw creepies, Mudhead! Where's your school spirit?
Mudhead: It's in the rumble seat - Ya want a snort?
Porgy: Oh, very funny.
Mudhead: Sure is.
Porgy: Gee! Everybody at Morse Science High has an extra-ciricular activity
Mudhead: Well doesn't Louise count?
Porgy: Only to 10, Mudhead - You know that's just it...
Mudhead: Just what?
Porgy: Well, we're the leaders of tomorrow.
Mudhead: Yeah, but it's today.
Porgy: Well, yeah, but what are you gonna do tomorrow - after we graduate?
Mudhead: Oh, well. I thought I'd go out and find a bunch of guys who dress
alike and follow 'em around.
Mudhead: Or I could go out and pick up a couple of girls.
Porgy: Oh, is that all you think about? Picking up things.
Porgy: Golly, Mudhead. Don't you remember what Principal Poop put down at the
Pep rally yesterday?
Mudhead: Principal who?
[Pep Rally Sounds]
Crowd: P - E - P - Pep pills! Pep pills! Pep pills! Pep pills! Pep pills!

Principal Poop: Is this on? Thank you fellow kids. In addressing for the
assembly this morning...
Heckler: Fuck you!
Principal Poop: Thank you. I'm recalling the words of the foundry... founder
of Morse Science High School, "You kipe the heap... who press the first bricks
with his own hands..."
Heckler: Who cares!
Principal Poop: "Knowledge for the pupil... people", he said. "Give them a
light and they'll follow it anywhere." We think that is a fair and a wise guy
who'll rule to be guided by...
Heckler: What is reality?
Principal Poop: And we're not afraid of it, are we?
Heckler: Eat it!
Principal Poop: You bet!
Heckler: Eat it Raw!
Principal Poop: Rah, rah rah! That's the spirits we have here - ok? - So come
Heckler: Fuck you!
Principal Poop: Line up. Sign up. And re-enlist today. Because we need more
schooling, for more students, for Morse Science High.
Principal Poop: Thank you.
Principal Poop: Fuck you, too!
Porgy: So you see, Mudhead, it's like the pooper said with counter subversive
educational priorities the way they are, well, it really helps our side to
Mudhead: Is that what you're gonna do?
Porgy: Aw, hell no! Right after I graduate I'm going to cut the soles off my
shoes, sit in a tree, and learn to play the flute.
Mudhead: Hey, look Porgy!
Porgy: Watch it!
Mudhead: Where are you gonna graduate from?
Porgy: Holy Mudhead, Mackeral! Morse Scince High -- it's disappeared!
