    Space Iliad! Damn your buskins Rustbucket. I wish I’d thought of that one.

    Shuffling Gopher Grope. Damn your ovaries Spicy Eggnog. I wish you hadn’t thought of that one. The last thing I need is an image of you shuffling across the prairie sticking your sticky paws down gopher holes with a look of insane delight on your face.

    It started out as a biopic of Kostner’s life but once the truth had burned the film crew’s minds, the next crew decided to use edited footage of Kostner wondering the praries with new footage. Kostner was subdued still long enough for scenes with the Sioux with the promise of gophers andmore gophers to come. True.
