LOL !  Just let me hit one more foodie show while I'm channel surfing and I'll qualify. It'll be like one of those hurricane/tornado demonstrations showing how a 12 ft 2X4 is fired out of a canon at a brick wall.. and blows right through it.

 

Yep.. the "ol' celery stalk through the brain" trick

 

This is making me hungry

Is it against the law to blow your brains out with a celery stalk?

 

Only if one is in a vegetative state.

I found 63 fruitcakes in my grandmother's attic. I'm sending one to each of you here.

 

After reading some of today's posts, some will receive more than one..

I always liked Burt Mustin.

 

One of MY favorites of his was when he was a senior citizen character on "All In The Family" who, to the disgust of Archie Bunker, who thought a man and woman living together without being married was a BIG "no-no",  was living with his woman friend without being married because, he explained, "If we got married, they'd cancel HER social security, and we'd be forced to live on half the amount of money we do now!" Which WAS the way they did it back then (They since changed it).

 

I unfortunately don't recall the actress that played Burt's companion.

 

 

Sepiatone

 

 

Burt's companion was play by Ruth McDevitt who was Josephine "Jo" Nelson in the All In The Family episode "Edith Finds An Old Man".

 

Here's the episode.

Every time I see this guy on Dragnet I know I'm in for a good time. His regular character is a retired police detective from Chicago, though he's played others. Friday and Gannon aren't aware of this when they begin their investigation and the guy runs circles around them as they work through solving their case - funny. You can even see Friday almost laughing - really good stuff.

 

One of my favorite is the "Brady Bunch" episode "Bobby's Hero" where Burt gave Bobby a lecture about the true nature of Jesse James.  He said Jesse killed his father.

From Steven Lewis' Bing Crosby Internet Museum
 
HOLIDAY INN VS. WHITE CHRISTMAS
 
"Thanks Steven for the musical highlights from Holiday Inn as this weeks audio treat! While I never got around to asking Bing which of the two film, White Christmas or Holiday Inn, he preferred I know he had a great deal of fun making White Christmas. I recall him saying that it was Danny Kaye's idea for the boy's "Sisters" number. 
 
Apparently Kaye had the idea of the guys mouthing the girls song, gartered gams, and the flower in the hair! Bing was, at first, opposed too this somewhat femine rendition, yet after they saw the rushes they added it to the film..."

You may remember that Burt Mustin would become a semi-regular guest on Carson's "Tonight Show", Kid, and always had a funny anecdote to share.

 

(...I remember one particular joke he told about fishing had Carson in stitches)

YES! And heeeerrrzzz... Burt!

 

The longest sustained laugh on the Tonight Show goes to Burt Mustin (look him up on Google -- you'll recognize him and the guy who played every old man in 1960's TV).

Mustin explained to Carson: A guy was ice fishing and not catching anything. He mov
ed down beside a small boy who had a large basket of fish. He asked the boy what his secret was....and the boy mumbled: "Mmm-mmrph brfffa rmmm". The man didn't understand and asked again. The boy mummbled: MMM-MMrph-BRFFa- rmmm!" Finally the man said "I'm sorry, I didn't catch that. What's your secret for catching fish???" Then the kid spit a bunch of worms into his hands and said: "I said, you gotta keep your bait warm."

More on UM and UH
 
August 3, 2014 @ 8:35 am · Filed by Mark Liberman under Language and gender, Psychology of language
 
A few days ago ("Fillers: Autism, gender, and age" 7/30/2014), I noted an apparent similarity between male/female differences in UM/UH usage, and  an autistic/typical difference reported in a poster by Gorman et al. at the IMFAR 2014 conference.
 
This morning I thought I'd take a closer look at the patterns in a large published conversational-speech dataset. Executive summary: Click here to read article
 
(there will be a test later)

Why people are unhappy is because we as a nation... spoiled rotten!  Don't appreciate when one has 3 meals a day, clothes on their backs and a roof over their heads.  More care is given in that everyone has to always follow whats trendy, keeping up with the Jones's (covet your neighbors house), worry about fad/fashion, the next iphone or X Box.  Some wallows in self pity (oh woe is me) - who needs a good kick in the hind quarters.drop20kickthumb.gif

 

Worry about Justin Bieber, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, or "Dancing With The Stars". WHO CARES!!!

 

We got the country we deserve.

 

I'll stop now before a fuse is blown thinking about it.

 

I'm sorry you're so unhappy.    Me?   I'm having a great time!
