Bob and Bill arrived at the Pearly Gates together. Bill asked Bob how he had died, and Bob explained, “I froze to death. How did you die?”
Bill replied, “I had a heart attack. You see, I knew my wife was having an affair, so I surprised her at home one day. There was a strange car in the driveway, but I found her alone in the living room. I ran around the whole house looking for the guy, and I got so worked up that my heart gave out before I could find him.”
Bob shakes his head, “That’s so ironic.”
“Why do you say that?” Bill asks.
“If you had only stopped to look in the freezer, we’d both still be alive!”

Wisdom from TV’s Batman

Robin: You can’t get away from Batman that easy!
Batman: Easily. Good grammar is essential, Robin.

Batman: Better put five cents in the meter.
Robin: No policeman’s going to give the Batmobile a ticket.
Batman: This money goes to building better roads. We all must do our part.

Robin: We’d better hurry, Batman.
Batman: Not too fast, Robin.
In good bat-climbing as in good driving, one must never sacrifice safety for speed.
Robin: Right again, Batman!

    And this is why I could never have been Robin. I would have slapped Batman and the show - as we know it anyway - would have been over. Thanks too for the funny! Great way to start the day. . . with laughter. emoticon

David had been extremely anxious for years. It got to the point where his compulsive worrying was ruining his life, so he went to a psychiatrist, who recommended that David hire a professional worrier. After he’d been working with the specialist for a few months, David’s friend John noticed a change. “What happened?” John asked. “You don’t worry about anything anymore.”
“I hired a professional worrier!” David answered.
“That must cost a fortune,” John said.
“Yes, he charges $3,000 a month,” David said sheepishly.
“Three thousand dollars! How can you ever afford to pay him?” John exclaimed.
“I don’t know,” David said. “That’s his problem.”

A SHOW IS BORN

Married … with Children (1987–97)

“The show was sold on the premise that no one is ever going to learn anything watching it,” said series creator Michael G. Moye, who, with partner Ron Leavitt (both writers on The Jeffersons), found a willing network in the not-yet-broadcasting Fox after the Big Three turned it down. The premise: A sitcom based on a crass family with parents played by comedians Sam Kinison and Roseanne Barr (who were ultimately replaced with Ed O’Neill and Katey Sagal). While pitching it to Fox, Moye and Leavitt hammered home the fact that this was “not The Cosby Show” so often that the project took on the phrase Not the Cosbys for its title. When Fox bought the show, they rechristened it the droll Married …with Children.

Names of American shows in foreign countries

DIFF’RENT STROKES
The Spanish title of the white-man-adopts-black-children sitcom cuts right to the chase: Blanco y Negro, or “Black and White.” Elsewhere, the show is known as “Little Boy Arnold Is Popular” (Japan) and “My Family Is a Mess” (Brazil).

BOB THE BUILDER
In Finland, this kids’ show isn’t about a guy named Bob, and he isn’t a builder. He’s known there as Puuha-Pete, or “Potter Pete.”

MURDER, SHE WROTE
In Germany, it’s known as Mord ist ihr Hobby, or “Murder Is Her Hobby” (which explains all those murders in that tiny Maine town).
