Monday's Assortment

Monday, January 28, 2013

A guy walked into a bar, stopping and talking to everyone as he made his way over to the bartender. When he finished with each group of people, they all left and went to stand outside the window, peering in. Finally, the bar was empty except for the guy and the bartender. The man walked up to the bartender and said, “I bet you $1,000 that I can spray beer from my mouth into a shot glass thirty feet away and get all the beer in the glass.” The bartender thought the guy was insane, but he wanted the $1,000, so he accepted the bet. The bartender got out a shot glass, paced off 30 feet, and the contest began. The man spit beer all over the bar. It didn’t even touch the shot glass. When he was done, the bartender looked at him and said, “Well, I guess you owe me $1,000, huh?”
“Yeah,” the man answered, “but I can afford it, because I bet all those people outside $500 each that I could come in here and spray beer all over the bar without your stopping me.”

TV Trivia

Melba (1986)
Melba Moore was a Broadway star in the ’60s and ’70s, appearing in the original cast of Hair, winning a Tony Award for her performance in Purlie, and scoring a string of hits on the soul chart like “You Stepped into My Life” and “Love’s Comin’ at Ya.” She was a popular entertainer in the African-American community, so CBS developed Melba, a sitcom in which Moore played the head of a middle-class black family. CBS debuted the show on January 28, 1986 … which happened to be the same day that the Challenger space shuttle exploded, killing everyone on board. Not surprisingly, shell-shocked viewers tuned into the news coverage of the tragedy on the other networks. Ratings for Melba were so low that CBS canceled the show the next day. The network gave it another chance in August 1986, airing a repeat of the first episode. That showing did even worse: At the time, it was the least-watched show in CBS history.


Three versions of the Davy Crockett theme song hit the top ten in 1955, almost simultaneously.

Saturday Trivia

THE REPLACEMENTS
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was created as a starring vehicle for rapper Will Smith. Smith’s aunt Vivian Banks was initially portrayed by Janet Hubert-Whitten. Hubert-Whitten and Smith frequently clashed, and after Hubert-Whitten complained one too many times, she was fired. (A contract clause that didn’t allow her to get pregnant was cited, even though her pregnancy had been written into the show.) Daphne Maxwell Reid took over the role in 1993.

Bowled move: In 1997, Ally McBeal was the first series to feature a unisex bathroom in the workplace.

Friday Funny

Friday, January 25, 2013

A witness is testifying before the court, and the prosecuting attorney is asking him questions.
"You witnessed the robbery, sir?"
"Yes."
"What was stolen?"
"Two televisions."
"Did you see the thieves?"
"Yes."
"Could you identify them?"
"Yes."
"Are the two men who stole the televisions in this courtroom?"
At this point, the two defendants raised their hands. (What's a defense attorney to do?) emoticon

Today in the Markets

Today in the markets helium was up; feathers were down. Paper was stationary. Elevators rose, while escalators continued their slow decline. Mining equipment hit rock bottom. The market for raisins dried up. Coca-cola fizzled. Balloon prices were inflated, & ScotTissue reached a new bottom.

TV POTPOURRI
TV town populations
* The Andy Griffith Show’s Mayberry: pop. 1,800.
* Dawson’s Creek’s Capeside (Massachusetts): pop. 35,000.
* SpongeBob SquarePants’s Bikini Bottom: pop. 50,000.
* Twin Peaks: pop. 51,201. Creator David Lynch wanted it to be 5,120, but ABC feared that urban viewers would be turned off by such a small town, so they made him add in the extra digit.

What the $%&*? Jerry Springer producers bleep out non-curse words to make guests seem more interesting.
