Watch: 'I Have a Feeling We're Not in Kansas Anymore'


Rich Juzwiak at FourFour, who should get a special Oscar for his assemblages of clips, takes on Judy Garland's famous line with this supercut.

He writes

"What's interesting to me about that is that it's at cliche status at this point, yet unlike, say, 'catch-22' or the also frequently mangled 'You're going to need a bigger boat,' the saying hasn't superseded its source, no matter how many times it's been said (as evident in the amount of times Toto and Dorothy are brought up alongside it). It's pretty amazing how tenacious a hold Oz still has on pop culture (I find myself referencing it constantly, and not just in the 'Kansas' way)."

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Speaking as a resident of Kansas, this phrase is the last thing I want to hear when I tell people I'm from Kansas. And as such, it's always the first thing I hear.

  3. Someone had way too much time on their hands to do this - perhaps they should devote this "free time" for a social cause or volunteering.

    Sorry to be "debbie downer" but seriously one minute we are upset that no one is getting off their duff to fight for justice and then next we are laughing at a project which has no value whatsoever

  4. meanwhile ZZZ, the time you spent reponding to this, and prompting me to repond to your post, wasted even more productivity for all humanity. I consider hypocritical behaviour to be a heinous offense, and, therefore, you may be most guity of all. And clearly a Debbie Downer, as well.

  6. I saw this earlier in the day, loved it, and APPLAUD the person who took the time and care to assemble this. It takes all kinds to make a world. Some try to cure cancer, and others compile a visual collection of the most re-quoted movie line ever to grace the movies. What's remarkable is that I believe the line is just as re-quoted (if not moreso) in real life (and thus its constant re-reference in life's reflection, the cinema). Bravo.

  10. ZZZ (Debbie Downer) is just upset, because someone dropped a house on her sister.

  12. that statement never works for me, well unless I am on vacation, since I live in Kansas.

  13. Ahhh Kansas where the people believe opposition to gay marriage and abortion are more important issues than feeding their children or having a job or a home. That's "Whats the Matter With Kansas"

  14. This is great! Nothing wrong with sharing some fun! We can't all be saving the world everyday and need to spend more time enjoying simple pleasures.

  15. To ZZZ: "Pooh-- what a smell of sulpher!"

  16. @ggreen;
    Can't agree more. In fact with Sen. Brownshirt moving in as governor, its NOT going to get better.

    The most appropriate quote about Kansas these days would be 'we're not merely fucked, we're sincerely fucked'... in the bad way.

  17. I prefer "I've sent a little insect on ahead to take the fight out of them."
