emoticon I lost another 2.75 lbs. Counting down my calories instead of counting up is truly working like magic for me! Since I started (3 weeks ago), I have lost 6.25 lbs.!! emoticon

A young man was hired by a supermarket and reported for his first day on the job. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and a smile, gave him a broom, and said, “Your first task will be to sweep out the entire store.”
“But I’m a college graduate!” the young man replied indignantly.
“Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t know that,” said the manager. “Here, give me the broom. I’ll show you how to do it.”

FABULOUS FLOP

SHOW: The Charmings (1987)

PREMISE: Snow White, Prince Charming, a magic mirror, and some dwarfs are accidentally transported through time to 1980s Burbank, California. The show featured live actors, not animation, and the comedy arose mostly from Snow White’s difficulty in dealing with the 20th century—especially modern appliances.

OUTCOME: It ran for 20 episodes.
(I remember watching this one - I liked it!)

TV MYTHS AND LEGENDS

MYTH: Charles Manson auditioned for The Monkees.

TRUTH: Before he became a murderer, Manson was an unsuccessful rock musician. (Music producer Terry Melcher declined to sign him, and Manson may have had actress Sharon Tate killed because he was looking for Melcher—Tate was renting a house that Melcher had once lived in.) Public knowledge about Manson’s rock connections (he was also acquainted with Beach Boy Dennis Wilson) led to the urban legend that he’d auditioned for the Monkees in 1965. But he couldn’t have—in 1965, he was serving a jail sentence for forgery. However, among the future famous musicians who did try out for the Monkees: Stephen Stills, Harry Nilsson, and Paul Williams.

What did the Indian Packing Company of Green Bay, Wisconsin, donate in 1919 to become the namesake of its newly formed hometown football team?

It donated $500 for uniforms, plus the use of its athletic field for team practice. The Green Bay Packers joined the National Football League two years later.

COME ON DOWN!

* When The Price Is Right debuted on American television in 1956 on NBC, in prime-time and daytime versions, both were hosted by former radio announcer Bill Cullen. The show went off the air in 1965, but CBS revived it for its daytime schedule in 1972, bringing in former Truth or Consequences host Bob Barker and it was a hit again. It’s been on the air ever since.

* As of the 7,000th episode, taped in November 2009, $250 million in prizes had been given out to nearly 62,000 contestants. The phrase “A new car!” had been shouted over 15,000 times; 7,000 contestants had actually managed to win one.
----------------------------
Highest possible cash prize playing “Plinko” on The Price Is Right: $50,000. No one has won it.

Why couldn’t the 12-year-old go to see the pirate movie?

It was rated Arrrrr!
---------------------------------
The first job of which U.S. president was at a Baskin-Robbins shop, where he scooped ice cream during a high-school summer vacation?

Barack Obama, in the mid-1970s in Honolulu, Hawaii.

CASTING CALL

Bottoms up!

In 2001, Comedy Central aired a sitcom called That’s My Bush!, a parody of cheesy 1970s and ’80s sitcoms centered on a dumb but lovable President George W. Bush. Character actor Timothy Bottoms, a dead ringer for the president, starred. The show wasn’t very successful (it ran for only 13 episodes), but in 2003 Bottoms returned to television … in a dramatic portrayal of President Bush in DC 9/11, the first made-for-TV movie about the events of 9/11.

Jack Benny once appeared on The $64,000 Question. He won $64.

(I can just see Jack Benny standing there with his arms crossed and that look on his face! emoticon )

The day before his wedding, a groom approached the minister and said, “I’ll give you $100 if you change our wedding vows. I want you to leave out the ‘love, honor, and cherish’ and the ‘be faithful to her forever’ parts.” He gave his money to the minister and walked away relieved.
The next day, as the man and his wife-to-be were exchanging their vows, the minister turned to the groom and said, “Will you promise to obey her every command, worship the ground she walks on, serve her breakfast in bed every morning, and swear before God that you will never look at another woman as long as you both shall live?”
The groom gulped and said in a tiny voice, “I do.” He then leaned toward the minister and said, “I thought we had a deal.”
“Sorry,” said the minister. “She made me a better offer.”
