A man went into a pet store and saw a beautiful, exotic parrot in a cage. The bird had a red string tied to its left leg and a blue string tied to its right leg. “What are those strings for?” the man asked the store’s owner.
“This is a highly trained animal,” the owner explained. “If you pull the red string, he speaks Chinese, and if you pull the blue string, he speaks Spanish.”
“What happens if you pull both strings at the same time?” the man asked.
“I fall off my perch, you idiot!” squawked the parrot.

Problem: There are two shows you want to watch that are on at the same time. Solution: Picture-in-picture, a feature on 1980s TV sets that put two channels on the screen, one in a small window in the corner. The option had its drawbacks (you couldn’t listen to both shows at the same time) and disappeared by 2000, made obsolete by DVRs, which can record a show while you watch another one.

During the show’s five-year run, the word sex was uttered on The Brady Bunch just twice.

    I don't get the Lady Gaga one. emoticon

I wouldn't be able to pick her out of a line up - although I have heard her name on occasion. emoticon

God bless!

THE REPLACEMENTS

Nine-year-old Jeremy Gelbwaks landed his first-ever acting role when he was cast as Chris, the drummer in the family band on The Partridge Family. But after one season, Jeremy had to quit because his father’s job required the family to move to Virginia. Another actor, Brian Forster, was quickly cast, and stayed on the show until its end. ABC reportedly didn’t receive a single letter or call about the switch.

David Brinkley’s career lasted 54 years (1943–97), the longest of any TV newscaster.

Owen’s mother-in-law demanded that she be taken along when Owen and his wife, Teresa, went on a safari. Owen could think of nothing worse than going on a trip with this tough old woman, but he was afraid to say no. One evening, Teresa discovered that her mother was missing from their camp. She woke Owen up and insisted they search the surrounding jungle for her mother. Owen grabbed his hunting rifle and charged into the trees with Teresa. In a clearing not far from the camp, they came upon a chilling sight: His mother-in-law and a large lion stood facing each other, not ten feet apart. Teresa cried, “Owen, what are we going to do?!”
“Nothing,” he said. “The lion got himself into this mess—let him get himself out of it.”

Why did the traffic light turn red?

You’d turn red, too, if you had to change in the middle of the street.

THIS DAY IN TV

The Ed Sullivan Show (originally called Talk of the Town) debuted on this day in 1948.

* Prior to hosting his show, Sullivan wrote a Broadway gossip column for the New York Daily News, the most widely read newspaper in the US at the time. He parlayed that into a gig as emcee for the Daily News’s annual Harvest Moon Ball, which CBS aired. The network picked him to host a variety show in 1948.

* Guests on the first episode: Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, plus Broadway producers Rodgers and Hammerstein with a preview of South Pacific.

* The act that appeared most: comedy duo Wayne and Shuster, who performed Shakespeare-based sketches on the show 67 times.
