...and we didn't come from monkeys you atheistic pinko meat-head.

There's at least two true statements there.

Never watched Archie. Did see the UK equivalent. Doubt that they ever had this kind of discussion in it.

At least one academician I am aware of says that we didn't "come from monkeys", we are monkeys. To be fair I don't know if he has his PhD yet.

Yep.

And we are 'meat-heads', in a sense.

Agreed.

It was an amazing show, using an extremely flawed guy to poke fun at society's prejudices. He was a raving bigot, but he was funny. And I don't recall that he was ever mean-spirited at all.

I was lucky enough to be watching first-runs when I was young. I'm not sure how well it would translate into the 21st century though.

So it turns out (as usual) that the US show was a remake of the UK one.

Here's a clip:

Looking for the equivalent UK clip I came across this:

I liked Dave Allen.

I only mentioned it because I referred to him as an academician (which most people think of as a professor or equivalent). I've linked him here before, including the video he did where he made that statement (and backed it up).
