Then the verses have a parody, began to move into prose, puns, skits ... One day, Marin found a purpose in life: he wanted people around talking exclusively ridiculous phrases that come up with is he. Neither more nor less

All of them (like the comic musical show) were actually one and the same - nothing. Cheech and Chong were by some prototypes Beavis Butt-Head, but if the latter is infinitely concerned about sex, the former were shifted to marijuana. In addition, Marin and Chong fun and evil'd play it's not too Anglo-Saxon origin. And continually exhibited police idiots. It seems to be a simple recipe, but you had to be an American 70-ies, to understand how it all turned out to be "cool" and time.
