Joe Dirt

Question: I don't understand the joke that Clem says when he's cleaning in the hallway, right before the killer mustard gas sequence. He says something like, "Let me ask you something. Does your mother sew?" *smacks the object he's talking to* "Boom! Get her to sew that!" Can anybody explain this?

Chosen answer: It's not so much a joke with a punchline, but more like a funny phrase. He was affiliated with the mob, and as such, has most likely been in violent situations. He asks "does your mother sew" and then punches his refelection in the fire extinguisher case (someone's face if a fight was really happening). The "get her to sew that" comment implies that the person he hit would have needed stitches. (thus the reference to sewing.)

Question: In the scene with Buffalo Bill and the well at his house, is that a spoof of Buffalo Bill in "Silence of the Lambs"?

Chosen answer: Yes.

Mistakes

In the scene just after Joe finds his parents, when they are sitting in their trailer talking, his parents have a stuffed clown between them. Just before Joe asks them if there ever was a time when they'd be staring at the moon, the clown is slumped forward with its face not visible. In the next shot, when his mom starts her sales pitch about having clowns for sale, the clown is now standing upright between them.
