"Why don't you go back to your home on Whore Island?" - Ron Burgundy
There's just something about Anchorman that makes it an absurdist cult classic.
Maybe it's the smell of rich mahogany that it gives off.
Maybe it's the yazz flute soundtrack.
Maybe it's the twisted science, where a woman's brains are 1/3 the size of the male's, and where bears can smell menstruation.
Maybe it's the loving of lamps. The loving of carpets. The loving of desks.
Maybe it's the intense emotional resonance of the glass case of emotion.
Maybe it's the fact that 60% of the time, the jokes work every time.
But one thing's for sure: it's kind of a big deal.
