"I feel wefweshed"

A while back, we came across "Blazing Saddles" and watched it again. When I woke up from my nap this evening, my first thought was "I feel wefweshed," one of Lili von Shtupp's lines.

             "Would you like another schnitzengruben?"

I had read that the character was based on Marlene Dietrich, and while watching the western channel in Springfield, we watched "Destry Rides Again," with Jimmy Stewart and Marlene. In every scene with Marlene, all I could see and hear was Madeline Kahn as Lili von Shtupp! "A wed womantic."
