The Duke & A Fluke

 June 23, 2024

   Someone in Hollywood had the very bad idea to create a fake saguaro and place it on the edge of a wash so the Duke could pose as a cowboy for a publicity photo. 

Fake Saguaro & The Duke
(note the Duke's horse can't even
stand to look at it)

   This goofy saguaro is so bad it couldn't make it into a Roadrunner cartoon. 

  Why is this so laughable? Because arrogant outsiders—read that Hollywood Art Directors!—think they know what passes for a saguaro and they have no clue. Here is a real saguaro.

Note the differences. It's not even funny.

   Well, maybe a little funny. Okay, funny enough to make it into my Saguaro book. Along with this guy.

    I must point out that same exact fake cactus also appears in Mel Brook's Western Masterpiece, "Blazing Saddles," which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, Bob.
