Regarding Mike Myers, there is no shortage of absurd and silly comedy, and The Pentaverate is no exception. From its plot, which is full of conspiracies, to its dirty wordplay, it’s everything we hoped for. One of the funny things in the Netflix show is a running joke about a town in New York called Nuts Deep.
It comes from a conversation between Canadian journalist Ken Scarborough (Mike Myers) and conspiracy theorist Anthony Lansdowne (also Mike Myers), as well as Ken’s trusted assistant, Reilly (Lydia West). The Motley Crew goes to Nuts Deep, New York after they talk about Big Dick’s Halfway Inn. But is Nuts Deep a real town, or did the Pentaverate make it up?
The Conversation That Leads To The Reveal Of Nuts Deep, New York Is Truly Masterful Comedic Wordplay
Crude humor based on puns might not be for everyone, but it’s funny when it’s done well. In the first episode, Anthony drives Ken and Reilly to the headquarters of the Pentaverate in New York City. This is where the joke starts. Anthony says they are about to pass Big Dick’s Halfway Inn while on their way.
He says, “Big Dick has gigantism, which is why he is called “Big Dick.” And he’s always wanted a hotel halfway between Toronto and Niagara Falls. “The Halfway Inn of Big Dick!” By explaining the joke, the perseverate gives more depth to what might seem like simple humor. Ken notices, “They had a gift shop, and pants are 50 percent off.”
Anthony goes even further with the joke’s punchline. “see? Fair prices. So, that’s who Big Dick is! I hope that people can look beyond his sagging anus.” It’s a great ending to a joke that, at first, seems to be just dumb. The episode is over, but Big Dick’s is not over.
In Episode 2, the crew keeps traveling, and Anthony needs to go to the bathroom. He says, “The Old Log Inn is Big Dick’s other hotel.” Ken asks, “How far away is the old log inn?” Anthony says, “It’s not far; it’s in the town of Nuts Deep.” Reilly says, “The Old Log Is in Nuts Deep, Really?” because he can’t believe how crazy this all sounds. This adds to the Pentaverate’s meta-awareness.
Still, the joke keeps going when Ken calls his old boss to try to get his job back and tells her that he’s “in nuts.” “New York!” she says. What are you doing in that town, which is real? I wonder if Nuts Deep exists. Is that town real?
Is ‘Nuts Deep’ From ‘The Pentaverate’ A Genuine Town Located In New York?
Nuts Deep is not a real New York town, as evidenced by a quick Google Maps search (although New York has some unique town names, such as Big Flats, Shawangunk, Horseheads, Neversink, and Tuckahoe). Regardless, anyone is welcome to visit… and eat at Nutz Deep!
In Wisconsin, there are two Nutz Deep restaurants, each of which has a bizarre history. “nutz Deep Began Life As A Tiny Hole-In-The-Wall Tavern Right On The Bay In Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin,” according to their website. When a real estate company acquired Ray’s bar in Sturgeon Bay, Ray later started working for (current owner) Dewey.
Ray told us the tale of a client named Wally who would ride his John Deere tractor to the bar, which is how he came up with the name of the original bar, according to the website. The moon was full one night, and the patrons were excessively boisterous. Wally entered with his tractor in tow after the door slammed shut. Ray said it would be “nuts deep” in here tonight. Thus, the name was created.
Travel to Nutz Deep. If You Want To Go To Wisconsin, Have A Burger Or Fish Fry, And A Good Cocktail! Anthony Lansdowne may be there, who is always coming up with new conspiracy theories.
