View Full Version : Skit about a "tough guy" fighting stupidly?

I have a vague recollection of a recurring skit (from "Saturday Night Live" or a similar show) where a self-described "tough guy" and his girlfriend would encounter various people, and he would inevitably lose his temper and fight with them, as his gal pal would beg him not to hurt anybody (since he was so tough and dangerous -- Ha!). Only he would not fight, exactly -- he would collapse in a heap, or something like that. I can't remember exactly what he would do, but he would wind up on the floor, thinking that he had beaten his opponent.

Does any one else remember the skit?

I think you're thinking of the White Trash Couple (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sA8f1oKz4L4) from Kids In The Hall.

ETA: for some reason the video loads poorly for me. I hope it's just my connection, tho because it's a really funny skit.

No, he's thinking of the skit from Mad Tv.

The guy would always call someone "turkey" and then they'd fall on the ground.

Excellent skit! Ron the Turkey Fighter rocks! I recognize him and the girlfriend from MadTV shows, but who is playing Tina?

Ah, ok. Thanks. I didn't think she was a cast member.

And I see from wiki that she and I have the same birthday (altho I'm a few years older)!

The first thing that came to my mind was that guy in South Park who abuses his kid for wanting to be a basketball player in their High School Musical parody.

Of course, that was obviously not the answer even before you posted.

I'm currently halfway through the skit and just know realized that the thread title wasn't "skit about tough guy fighting stupidity"
