    I need help. What movie was this joke from?

    The character says to a female "Tickle your A$$ with a feather?"

    The female says "Excuse me?"

    The character says "Particularly Nasty Weather!"

    We're having problems remembering what movie it was in at work.

    Was it Chevy Chase? Mike Myers?

    It sounds like something out of "Fletch," but I may be wrong.

    It's been a while, but I think it's from that Mad Magazine movie 'Up The Academy' with Ralph Macchio.

    We're sure it's not Fletch, because we quote that movie day in and day out.

    Haven't seen Up The Academy. May have to check it out.

    Anyone else got an idea?

    I did a quick google search and came up with a couple of people who were trying to figure out where it was from at different newsgroups. Both were confirmed as being from Up the Academy.

    I've never seen the movie, but this has sparked my interest as well.

    The phrase couldn't have originated with Up the Academy, because the film was released in 1980 and I heard it being quoted in conversation no later than 1978. It was a favorite expression of a guy I knew at the time, and he and I only lived in the same city from 1976 until 78. So presumably Up the Academy was also quoting some earlier use of the phrase.

    Regards,

    Joe

    The quote is actually part of a lude joke that has been going around for at least 27 years (I heard it in grade 1). It was probably first used in film in 'Up the Academy'.
