First off this post is serious, it is not a joke. I remember watching a movie on TV back in the 80's. Now all we got was some standard channels. No cable or anything like that.

I remember it was an over the top style comedy. With real zany characters. And this is where it gets weird. They were trying to cheat on a horse race, by drugging the horse. They did this by shoving a long orange colored object in the horse's rear. It would run spastic after that. And I think the joke was that it was running backwards. And I think the end scene was one of the characters getting the same treatment. Was this real? I am 100% sure I am not imaging it.

"A Fine Mess"

IIRC, it was Mulligan's character who got the same treatment as the horse.

**edit**The whole movie has been uploaded by the YT user, MrBayish, if you'd like to check for sure.

You're very welcome. :) And, like you, I remembered Mulligan with the **ahem** treatment happening to him in the end...of the movie, that is. lol Strange how memories can play tricks on you.

I was just coming over here to say you wasn't imagine the movie , but someone beat me to it. "A Fine mess' is the movie that where I first discovered Howie Mandal. I always loved Richard Mulligan and Ted Danson. I thought that movie was so funny when I was little.
