Henry and Olivia, both 65 years old, were celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. A fairy appeared and said to them, “Congratulations! I’m here to grant each of you one wish.”
Olivia said immediately, “I want to travel around the world.”
The fairy waved her wand, and poof! Olivia had a ticket in her hand for an around-the-world cruise. Then the fairy asked Henry what his wish was. He said sheepishly, “I want a wife who’s thirty years younger than me.”
So the fairy waved her wand, and poof! Henry was 95 years old!

When it comes to the World Wide Web, what is a metaverse?

Smellovision

In April 1965, BBC Television interviewed a professor from London University who announced that he had perfected a technology that would allow odors to be transmitted along with television broadcasts. To demonstrate it, he put ground-up coffee and onions in the “Smellovision” transmitter … and told viewers, “For best results, stand six feet away from your set and sniff.” It was, of course, a hoax … but several people actually called in to the network to report that they had smelled the odors in their homes. Some even said that the smell of the onions had made their eyes water.

What American Idol winner was the first female performer named Entertainer of the Year two years in a row by the Academy of Country Music?

Carrie Underwood, in 2008 and 2009. She won Idol in 2005, its fourth season.

IDOL CHATTER

When American Idol debuted in 2002, it unleashed a pop culture juggernaut, leading to pop stars, an annual arena tour, and several years as the #1 show on TV. Idol production company 19 Entertainment also planned to make a movie at the conclusion of each season that would star that year’s winner and runner-up. Only one was made: From Justin to Kelly starring Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini, a cheesy, spring break beach romance. It was lambasted by critics and made only $4.9 million. The abysmal performance led to the cancellation of any and all future Idol movies … including From Ruben to Clay, starring season two’s Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken. Production had already begun on the film, which was going to be a modern-day version of the Bing Crosby/Bob Hope buddy comedy musical Road movies of the 1940s, such as Road to Singapore and Road to Morocco.

A real oldie, but goodie -

A woman had just gotten out of the shower when her doorbell rang. “Who is it?” she shouted.
“It’s the blind man,” the visitor answered. The woman decided that it didn’t matter if she opened the door without her clothes on, since the man couldn’t see. So she hurried over and flung the door open wide.
Shocked, the man said, “Um, I’m from the window treatments store. Where do you want me to put these blinds?”

REALITY BITES

In 2010, D. J. Goodson, an inmate at a Pennsylvania prison, sued reality-show stars Kourtney, Khloé, and Kim Kardashian for $75,000 on grounds of “extreme emotional distress.” The prisoner said other inmates wanted to watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians on the prison lounge’s only TV, forcing him to sit through it, and he claimed the experience left him permanently scarred. (The case was thrown out of court.)
(I guess the prison doesn't have anything else to keep him busy, huh?)
