A police mug shot of what famous American was used in a computer software ad in Germany?

Microsoft founder Bill Gates. The mug shot was taken in 1977 when Gates was arrested for speeding in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where Microsoft was then headquartered. The slogan accompanying the ad read: “Good that there are no speed limits for software.”
Sopranos trivia

* From the start the show’s creator, David Chase, wanted to call the show The Sopranos, but HBO said no. They were afraid viewers would think the show was about opera singers. They were going to call the series Family Man, but backed off when Fox introduced the animated series Family Guy.

* What was one of the challenges actor Michael Imperioli had to master to play Tony Soprano’s nephew Christopher Moltisanti? Like a lot of native New Yorkers, Imperioli never learned how to drive. So when one of the scripts called for him to drive, he ran out and got his learner’s permit.
Nolan Gould, who plays the dumb kid Luke on Modern Family, is a Mensa member.

Friday Assortment

Leah was having a birthday party for her four-year-old son, Jackson. The time came to open presents, and he opened the one from his grandma first. It was a water gun, and Jackson leapt up and down with excitement. He rushed to the nearest sink to fill it up.
But Leah wasn’t too happy. She turned to her mother and said, “I’m surprised at you, Mom. Don’t you remember how we used to drive you crazy with those water guns when we were little?”
Her mom smiled and then said, “I remember. Of course I remember.”

Three ministers were having lunch, discussing their churches. One said, “I’ve been having so much trouble with bats this summer. They get into the church and cause so much trouble. I’ve tried everything, but I can’t scare them away.”
“Yes, I’ve had the same problem,” said a second minister. “I’ve got hundreds in the sanctuary, and I can’t get them to leave for anything.”
The third minister spoke up: “Well, I had bats, too, but then I baptized all of them and made them members of the church. I haven’t seen one come back since then!”
In theatrical slang, what is “skin money”?

Extra pay given to performers when nudity is required onstage.

Cigarette-company product placement from early TV

* Camel sponsored the 1949–56 police drama Man Against Crime. The show was forbidden from showing bad guys smoking. The cool and collected series star Ralph Bellamy, however, was often seen smoking Camels.

* Leo G. Carroll and Lee Patrick, stars of the sitcom Topper, were required to smoke Camels on the show, and Carroll concluded each show by exclaiming, “They have flavor the way I like flavor!”

* The Chesterfield Supper Club featured host Perry Como hawking Chesterfields between songs, and during them, too—he opened each show with a song called “Smoke Dreams.”
(My, how times have changed...and for the better, in my opinion!)
Animated, female, and African-American remakes of The Odd Couple were all produced.

  Hope more and more people will choose not to smoke, not only for themselves, but also for their family, loved ones, friends and people around them.

Son: Mom, can I have a car for graduation?
Mother: Only if you get a haircut first.
Son: But didn’t Abraham, Moses, and Jesus have long hair?
Mother: Yes, and they walked everywhere they went.
TV journalist Katie Couric uses the mnemonic “I’m a dinner jacket” to remember how to pronounce the last name of what Middle Eastern leader?

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. According to the Voice of America, the correct pronunciation of his name is ahh-mah-dee-nee-ZHAHD.

There’s a bizarre theory among fans of Gilligan’s Island: that the island represents hell, and the seven castaways are trapped there because each personifies one of the seven deadly sins. Ginger represents lust because she’s a foxy movie star. Mary Ann is envy because she’s jealous of Ginger’s beauty. The Professor, with his superior intellect, is pride. Mr. Howell, the millionaire, represents greed. Mrs. Howell represents sloth because she’s a work-averse millionaire’s wife. The Skipper is gluttony and anger, a fat guy who always wants more to eat and is always getting mad at Gilligan. Gilligan himself? According to the theory, he represents Satan. (It’s his island, after all.) The proof: He always bungles their plans for escape … because there is no escape from hell. And he always wears red.
As a child, Hogan’s Heroes actor Robert Clary (LeBeau) survived a Nazi concentration camp.
