Ruth and Brenda had each been married to their husbands for more than 50 years. Ruth complained to Brenda that she didn’t think her husband found her attractive anymore. “As I get older, he doesn’t even bother to look at me,” she said.
“It’s the opposite for me,” replied Brenda. “As I get older, my husband says I get more beautiful every day.”
Ruth snapped, “That’s because your husband is an archaeologist!”

FABULOUS FLOPS

Two strange game shows

TRASHED (1994) Contestants tried to answer trivia and pop culture questions correctly on this MTV show. If they didn’t, the opposing team got to smash the losing team’s prized possessions with a sledgehammer.

THE GRUDGE MATCH (1991) Real people came on to settle a dispute or disagreement in a boxing ring, using “weapons” such as oversize boxing gloves, cream pies, and water balloons. At the end of the show, the studio audience voted on a winner.

On NBC’s 1985 schedule, Highway to Heaven was followed by Hell Town.

Salvador took his dog, a very happy little spaniel, to the vet. “Dr. White,” he said sadly, “I’m sorry to do this, but I need to have you cut off my dog’s tail.”
Shocked, Dr. White asked, “Salvador, why would you want me to do such a terrible thing to your sweet little dog?”
“Because,” said Salvador, “my mother-in-law is coming to town tomorrow, and I don’t want anything to make her think she’s welcome.”

WRITER’S REVENGE

As a writer on Cybill, Chuck Lorre had numerous run-ins with star Cybill Shepherd, who often complained about her lines. Later, while serving as a producer on Roseanne, Lorre clashed with Roseanne Barr over the direction of the show. Lorre went on to create and produce Two and a Half Men, and for a promotional stunt in 2008 the crime-drama CSI and the sitcom Two and a Half Men traded writers. In Lorre’s CSI episode, the murder victim is a thinly veiled amalgam of Shepherd and Barr. Before the fictional TV star (played by Katey Sagal) was killed, she yelled at her writer, “Don’t argue with me. Just make me funny. And lovable!” Later, her dead body was discovered with a rubber chicken shoved down her throat. Detective Grissom (William Petersen) deadpanned, “Dying is easy; comedy is hard.”

“Believe It or Not,” from Greatest American Hero

In the late 1970s and early ’80s, Joey Scarbury was a session singer and songwriter for hire. Then TV composer Mike Post gave him his big break, selecting him to sing the theme song for a new show about a bumbling superhero called Greatest American Hero. The song, whose official title is “Theme from Greatest American Hero (Believe It or Not),” went to #2 in 1981. The show ran for three seasons. Scarbury continued to write songs for radio and TV and became a minor country music star in the 1990s, but he never had another pop hit.

All those flags are now plain white. The radiation from the sun has taken the color from them. Just call me Cliff Claven.
