“The Cafeteria” sketch on “The Carol Burnett Show” was laugh-out-loud funny. When Tim Conway sat down with Carol Burnett’s lasagna, the entire place exploded in giggles.
We don’t really have cafeterias in our modern era. Back in the 60’s and 70’s they were a great way for people to get lunch on the go.
Trouble was, as the players in this sketch found out, cafeterias could get really crowded, really fast. Think Starbucks on a Saturday morning crowded. When Tim Conway and Carol Burnett each get up from their seats, Harvey Korman and Vicki Lawrence steal their spots. What results is pure hilarity — and a little gross.
