…it’s actually a time machine.
I’ve got Santo on for background while I’m working and that line read absolutely kills me every time.
One of the funniest parts of 1301 is the whole first part of the movie where Santo is talking to the scientists before he shoves his girlfriend into the lady-spinner. The tone and inflection of the dubbing is so funny, especially the exchange between the indoor-sunglasses guy (is he blind?) and Santo.
What complicated problem do you want to see solved with a mechanical invention?
Santo has a lock on time travel via tilt-a-whirl. I’m thinking I’d like to see a Turing-complete roller coaster.
