Monday Assortment

Monday, April 29, 2013

A man was trying to cross the street. But when he stepped off the curb, a car came screeching around the corner, heading straight for him. The man walked faster, trying to hurry across the street, but the car changed lanes and continued to come at him. So the guy turned around to go back, but the car changed lanes again and charged at him. By now, the car was so close and the man so scared that he just stopped in the middle of the road. The car got really close, then swerved at the last possible second, stopping next to the man. The driver rolled down the window. It was a squirrel. He said, “See, it’s not as easy as it looks!”

Comedian Jackie Gleason. The statue depicts Gleason carrying a lunchbox and dressed as Ralph Kramden, the blustering bus driver he portrayed on the TV sitcom The Honeymooners.

Writer/actor Jack Webb created the cop show Dragnet in the 1950s and revived it in the late 1960s. The new show then spun off another police drama called Adam-12, which in turn begat Emergency!, about a pair of paramedics/firefighters. And a 1975 episode of Emergency! served as a pilot for yet another Dragnet-derived show. 905-Wild, as it was to be titled (based on police code for “wild animal, loose and threatening”), followed a Los Angeles animal control worker (portrayed by Mark Harmon). Most of the pilot episode showed Harmon fighting off a tiger in a grocery store and saving dogs caught in a brush fire. Apparently, the Dragnet magic didn’t transfer to the animal kingdom—NBC passed on 905-Wild.

Friday Assortment

Friday, April 26, 2013

The manager of a clothing store returned from his lunch and noticed that one of his clerks had a bandaged hand. He asked what happened, and the clerk answered, “Don’t worry about it, sir. I have great news! I finally sold that hideously ugly suit we’ve been trying to get rid of for so long.”
“That’s great!” the manager said. “I thought we’d never get that pink-and-purple monstrosity out of here, but do tell me, what happened to your hand?”
“Oh,” the clerk replied, “after I sold the suit to the guy, his Seeing Eye dog bit me.”

What did rebellious Boston colonists do to British customs commissioner John Malcolm in 1775 when he attempted to collect the tax on tea?

They forced him to drink large quantities of hot tea after stripping him, tar-and-feathering him, and parading him through the streets of Boston. The attack took place four weeks after the Boston Tea Party
_____________________
On a 1987 episode of Newhart, Michael (Peter Scolari) mentions star Bob Newhart’s old show, The Bob Newhart Show, to innkeeper Dick Loudon (played by Newhart). Michael calls it “the one with the shrink who stutters.” Dick replies, “He didn’t stutter, he … he … he stammered.”
(I just LOVE it when they do things like that - inside jokes are the best when you get them!)

For how many years was the soap opera Guiding Light on radio and TV before it was cancelled in 2009?

72. The long-running soap started out on radio as a 15-minute dramatic series on January 25, 1937. It moved to television in 1952, and aired its last episode on September 18, 2009.

SCANDAL ON THE SET

Most of the child cast members of The Cosby Show followed star and producer Bill Cosby’s rules: Show up on time and be respectful of adults. But Lisa Bonet, who portrayed daughter Denise, frequently showed up late, if she showed up at all. Bonet was massively popular with teen viewers, so Cosby put up with it … until Bonet made the movie Angel Heart in 1987, in which she played the underage love interest of Mickey Rourke’s character, and participated in graphic sex scenes. That was too much for Cosby, so he took Bonet off Cosby in a way that benefited him, too: He produced a spin-off, A Different World, depicting Denise at college. A year into the run of that show, however, Bonet got pregnant. Cosby fired her. She eventually returned to The Cosby Show, but again began showing up late for rehearsals. Cosby fired her for good this time. He didn’t even invite her back for the series finale in 1992.
(I remember hearing about all this - what an ungrateful girl. If I had the chance to act with Bill Cosby, I would be SO grateful!)
