Andrea handed her daughter Molly a dollar. The little girl went outside and returned ten minutes later without the dollar. Wondering where the money went, Andrea asked, “Where is the dollar I gave you, dear?”
“I gave it to an old lady,” Molly said.
“Oh, that is so sweet,” said her mom. “I’m so proud of you. Tomorrow I’ll give you two dollars.”
The next day, as promised, Andrea gave Molly two dollars. Molly went outside again and came back in without the bills.
“What did you do with the money?” asked her proud mom.
“Oh, today I saw the same old lady,” began Molly, “and gave her the two dollars so she could buy me a bigger ice cream.”

Over the past 20 years, the saxophone has been the instrument that girls most want to play in school bands. Why? According to The New York Times, it’s because Lisa Simpson plays it on The Simpsons. The Times cited band teachers who say they have way too many female sax players. But Tim Timmons, a music dean at the University of Missouri, theorized that the sax boom may have been caused by other influences—like when Bill Clinton performed “Heartbreak Hotel” on the saxophone on a 1992 episode of The Arsenio Hall Show.

    Both of our daughters played "other instruments" in the school band but both were recruited to play the sax in jazz band. One of my daughters clearly said that it was the band teacher who influenced her. The other sarcastically said it was because of Bill Clinton.

    Cute ice cream joke! As for the sax, I'd have thought guys might want to play it after Kenny G's popularity, but apparently not. As for Davy, what a clever little monkey he was! emoticon

What triggered the first recorded student protest in U.S. history?

Sour butter served in Harvard University’s dining rooms in 1766. The protest, known as the Great Butter Rebellion, resulted in the suspension of half the student body and lasted a month. Years later, the protest leader, student Asa Dunbar, would be the grandfather of Henry David Thoreau.

Butt-Head (Beavis and Butt-Head)

When animator Mike Judge was in college, he lived next door to a 12-year-old kid who called himself Iron-Butt. Judge recalls, “Supposedly, you could kick him in the butt as hard as you wanted, and it wouldn’t hurt him.” A troublemaker, Iron-Butt used to sneak into Judge’s house and once burned down a tree. He became the inspiration for Butt-Head of Beavis and Butt-Head.

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.
