DO YOU REMEMBER …

… these scholcky made-for-TV movies from the ’70s?

Killdozer (1974) Construction workers uncover a magical meteorite that takes “possession” of their bulldozer. The bulldozer goes on a killing spree.

The Desperate Miles (1975) A crippled Vietnam War vet makes an inspiring, 180-mile journey in a wheelchair. Heartwarming? No—along the way, a crazy truck driver keeps trying to kill him.

Someone I Touched (1975) Cloris Leachman plays a woman who contemplates divorce when she finds out her husband has been unfaithful and contracted a venereal disease. She also finds out that she’s pregnant, especially surprising because she’s 50 years old.

(Nope - I don't remember any of them. emoticon )

A woman opened a new jewelry store, and her friend sent her flowers to mark the occasion. When the bouquet arrived, the card read, “Rest in Peace.” Annoyed, the woman called the florist to complain.
After she told the florist about the mistake, he said, “I’m very sorry for the error, ma’am, but rather than getting angry, you should think about this: Somewhere there’s a funeral taking place, and they just received flowers with a note saying ‘Congratulations on your new location.’”

French writer Alexander Dumas traded hundreds of volumes of his work for a lifetime supply of what fruit?

Cantaloupes, known as cavaillons, which are named for the town in Provence where they are still grown. In his 1864 deal with Cavaillon’s public library, Dumas was to be paid an “annuity” of 12 cantaloupes every summer for life. He died six years (72 melons) later.

SCANDAL ON THE SET

Kirk Cameron was the breakout star of ABC’s Growing Pains—and a teen idol, giving him a lot of control over the show. In 1988, he converted to evangelical Christianity and demanded script and cast changes if he felt the content was too racy. For instance, when his character, Mike Seaver, was scripted to marry Julie, the family’s live-in nanny, Cameron insisted that the wedding be called off and that Julie McCullough, the actress who played Julie, be fired. Why? McCullough had previously appeared nude in Playboy. She showed up for work one day thinking her character would be getting married—but instead, the script change called for her to stand up Mike at the altar. McCullough, who’d been slated to join Growing Pains as a full cast member, never appeared on the show again.

Why is it hard for a giraffe to apologize?

Because it takes a long time for it to swallow its pride.

What is unusual about the Cayman golf ball that was designed for golf great Jack Nicklaus in 1984?

It weighs 24 grams instead of the standard 45 and has a hard plastic shell with pimples instead of the usual golf ball dimples. These design changes created a slower ball that traveled half as far as a standard ball, which made it perfect for the small nine-hole course Nicklaus had been hired to build on tiny Grand Cayman Island.

Patel came in second, was signed to the Pirates, and pitched seven innings in minor-league play before he was released from the team in 2010.

Three men were hiking and came upon a large, raging river. They needed to cross it, but they had no idea how. The first man prayed, “God, give me the strength to cross this river.” Poof! God made him strong, and he was able to swim across the river in about two hours despite almost drowning several times.
Seeing this, the second man prayed, “God, give me the strength and the tools to cross this river.” Poof! God gave him a boat, and he was able to row across the river in about an hour, even though the boat almost capsized several times.
Finally, the third man prayed, “God, give me the strength, the tools, and the intelligence to cross this river.” And poof! God turned him into a woman. She looked at a map, hiked upstream a half mile, then walked across a bridge.

emoticon Power to women everywhere!

What motivated Minnesota factory worker Charles Strite to invent the automatic pop-up toaster in 1919?

He couldn’t stand the burned toast regularly served in his company cafeteria. Strite’s invention, which browned a single piece of bread on both sides, had a variable timer that turned off the electricity and triggered a spring that ejected the toasted bread.

Next to John Travolta’s Vinnie Barbarino, the most popular of the teenage delinquent Sweathogs on Welcome Back, Kotter was the scrawny, nerdy Arnold Horshack. A two-part episode made during Kotter’s second season in 1977, “There Goes Number 5,” was intended as a spin-off, focusing on Horshack and his equally weird family. Plot: When the family’s fourth stepfather dies, Horshack has to take a job with his uncle to feed his brothers and sisters. The episode was among the lowest-rated of the year, proving that a little Horshack goes a long way.
