What is the difference between the government and the Mafia?

One of them is organized.

For what fruit is Haiti’s currency named?

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Nope - it's the gourd, known in Haiti as gourde. In the early 1800s, the ruler of impoverished northern Haiti declared all gourds state property and had them brought to his treasury to be issued as currency. Eventually, banknotes and coins backed by gold replaced the cumbersome fruit, but gourde has been the name of Haiti’s official currency ever since.

Here are some TV firsts:

FIRST FULL-COLOR BROADCAST: On January 1, 1954, NBC made the first nationwide, all-color telecast with its coverage of the Tournament of Roses Parade from Pasadena, California.

FIRST SPIN-OFF: CBS’s western series Trackdown begat the bounty hunter drama Wanted: Dead or Alive (starring Steve McQueen) in 1958.

FIRST TOILET ON TV: The very first episode of Leave It to Beaver in 1957 was shelved for a few weeks by network censors because it showed a toilet. (Wally and the Beav tried to keep a baby alligator in the toilet tank.)

Happy Days character Marian Cunningham’s maiden name was Kelp.

“Whoever you are, God or anybody else, you work with the materials at hand.”

—LAWRENCE BLOCK, American novelist
________________________________
A woman walked into a post office one day to see a desperate-looking man standing at the counter, carefully applying Love stamps to pretty pink envelopes. He was even spraying each one with perfume.
Her curiosity piqued, she went over to the man and asked what he was doing.
He replied, “I’m sending out a hundred Valentine’s Day cards signed ‘Guess who?’”
“Why would you do that?” asked the woman.
He said, “I’m a divorce lawyer, and business has been slow.”

David McCallum achieved TV stardom in the 1960s as Russian spy Illya Kuryakin on The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Forty years later, he played Ducky, the medical examiner on NCIS. In a 2008 episode, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) is asked what Ducky looked like as a young man. Gibbs replies, “Illya Kuryakin.”

(I had such a HUGE HUGE HUGE crush on Illya! I still LOVE LOVE LOVE David McCallum to this day (although I don't watch NCIS). He is simply gorgeous. Sigh)


David Letterman has worn suits made of marshmallows, magnets, and nachos.
