On a sticky summer day, a man got out of the shower and said to his wife, “Honey, it’s just too hot to wear any clothes today. What do you think the neighbors would say if I mowed the lawn with nothing on?”
His wife replied, “I think they’d say that I married you for your money.”

In TV’s Star Trek universe, what are tribbles?

Furry little purring creatures that are born pregnant and continue multiplying based on how much they eat—and they’re always hungry.

Philo T. Farnsworth, the inventor of television, was born on this day in 1906.

Even though Farnsworth invented TV, he only appeared on television twice. Once was for an interview at the local station in Rigby, Idaho, near where he had developed the concept for TV as a teenager. The other was on I’ve Got a Secret, in which celebrity contestants attempted to guess his accomplishment (inventor of TV) using only yes-and-no questions. When the panel couldn’t guess his secret, he won $80 and a carton of Winston cigarettes.

When it comes to investment-world slang, what is a yupcap?

It’s an acronym for young urban professional who can’t afford property. The term refers to individuals with well-paying jobs who can’t afford to buy property for any of a variety of reasons—including high real estate prices, limited credit history, or insufficient savings.

On Star Trek, Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy (DeForest Kelley) would get so exasperated when asked to do something out of his comfort zone that he’d tell Capt. Kirk, “Dammit, Jim, I’m a doctor, not a ________.” It became an enduring TV catchphrase. Here are a few examples:

* “Dammit, Jim, I’m a doctor, not a bricklayer.”

* “Dammit, Jim, I’m a doctor, not an engineer.”

* “Dammit, Jim, I’m a doctor, not a coal miner.”

* “Dammit, Jim, I’m a doctor, not an escalator.”

* “Dammit, Jim, I’m a surgeon, not a psychiatrist.”

A man was chosen to be on a jury, but just as he was about to be sworn in, he turned to the judge and said, “I’m sorry, Your Honor, but I will not be able to serve on this jury.”
“Why not?” asked the judge, annoyed.
“Because,” the man answered, “I’m deaf in one ear, and I’ll only be able to hear one side.”

What the heck happened to Family Matters?

Family Matters was a spin-off from the sitcom Perfect Strangers, centered around the Winslows, a middle-class African-American family in Chicago. But midway through the first season, the Winslows’ nerdy teenage neighbor, Steve Urkel, appeared in an episode and became a pop-culture phenomenon. Before long, Urkel was everywhere—his catchphrase “Did I do that?” adorned T-shirts, and stores were deluged with talking Urkel dolls and Urkel-Os breakfast cereal. By season six, the family sitcom had become a science-fiction show. Most episodes revolved around Urkel inventing crazy contraptions, including a time machine (to transport himself to a pirate ship) and a cloning device (to make a cool clone of himself named Stefan Urquel). By season nine, it was canceled.
