Fredo Corleone: I'm your older brother, Mike, and I was stepped over!
Michael Corleone: That's the way Pop wanted it.
Fredo Corleone: It ain't the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I'm smart! Not like everybody says...like dumb...I'm smart and I want respect!
This scene is, of course, from the Godfather II. A classic film and possibly the only sequel in history to ever be considered better than the original.
That is, until today. Until Brad J. Lamb decided that one masterpiece wasn't quite enough. As if he somehow hadn't pushed the envelope with his Gold Paint Brush-winning: "This Lamb Sells Condos," featuring his head on a lamb's body. Nope. Mr. Lamb decided that he would just go ahead and break all the rules by putting his head on a lamb's body and that lamb would be flying above the earth like some kind of an astronaut person and the headline would read: "MILES ABOVE THE COMPETITION." Amazing! Now, I'm feeling sort of very lighthea--
--Wow, I think I may have just fainted. Twisted my left ankle. It's okay now. I'm fine. In fact, I'm better than fine. I would say that I'm ecstatic! Bless you Brad J. Lamb. And bless the Titanium Paint Brush I'm sending your way.
Hymen Roth: What we'll do together in the next few months will make history, Michael -- history. It's never been done before. Not even your father would dream that such a thing could be possible.
