    In the Mel Brooks classic, Blazing Saddles, Gene Wilder awakes to find himself confronted with the most uncommon of sights, a black Sheriff.

    Cleavon Little (Sheriff): Are we awake?

    Wilder: I'm not sure? Are

    Little: Yes, we are.

    Wilder: Then we're awake....but very confused.

    Little: Well, seeing as you are my guest, I'll try to entertain you. What do you like to do?

    Wilder: Play Chess.....Screw.

    Little: Let's play chess.
