"Rinse The Blood Off My Toga" by Wayne & Shuster

On this, the anniversary of the 1990 death of Canadian comedian Johnny Wayne, I thought it would be most apt to feature the greatest sketch Wayne & Shuster ever produced; Rinse the Blood off My Toga is a parody of William Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar, featuring the classic catch-phrase 'Julie, don't go!' contrasted with a hard-boiled detective story, in which Wayne plays Flavius Maximus, investigating the death of the Roman general and statesman armed only with corny jokes.
