Ane & Sakib

In the late 1970s, Saturday Night Live had a recurring sketch in which Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd would portray Yortuk and Georg Festrunk, two brothers who had immigrated from Yugoslavia to the United States. Their catchphrase, "two wild and crazy guys," was ubiquitous during my junior high school years.

With two Yugoslavs on the Dips roster, the temptation proved too great for Washington Star writer Kathleen Maxa not to have a little fun with.

One local Star reader took great umbrage to the piece for a variety of reasons: A perceived swipe at Xerox salesman, the questionable reputation of the female clientele at two Georgetown nightspots, and the Dips need for positive coverage, rather than "this garbage."

Ms. Maxa's unprinted reply may have been something to the effect of, "lighten up."
