One year Raymond didn’t know what to buy his mother-in-law for her birthday, so he purchased her a nice plot in the nearby cemetery. The next year, as they were leaving for her birthday party, Raymond’s wife noticed that he had no gift in his hands. She snapped at him, “Why didn’t you buy her something?”
“Well, she hasn’t used the gift I gave her last year,” he replied.

TV TREASURES

For dedicated collectors, anything associated with the 1965–68 cult sci-fi series Lost in Space commands out-of-this-world prices, but nothing more than a three-foot-tall model of the Jupiter 2 space pod that helped the Robinsons return to Earth. It was destined for the junkyard after the show’s cancellation, but someone saved the wood, steel, and aluminum prop … and sold it at auction in June 2010 for $85,000. (Penny Robinson’s space suit, worn by actress Angela Cartwright in the first season, was a relative bargain at $20,000.)

We're wedding planning as their getting married next June 21. I need to get to feeling better so I can work on losing some more weight before I get a new dress.

Ever since he’d graduated from college, Kevin had spent most of his time lying on the couch, playing video games, and drinking. One day, as he reached for another can of beer, he fell off the sofa and landed on his head. He was rushed to the hospital, and after they’d taken an X-ray, the doctor came to his bedside with a diagnosis.
“I’m sorry, Kevin, but I have some bad news,” he said. “Your X-rays reveal that you’ve broken your neck. I’m afraid you’ll never be able to work again.”
“Thanks, Doctor,” Kevin said calmly. “Now what’s the bad news?”

A SHOW IS BORN

The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–71)

In 1959, TV writer Paul Henning (The Real McCoys, The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show) visited some Civil War historical sites in the South, which gave him a show idea: What if someone from the rural South was placed in a sophisticated, wealthy neighborhood? He worked that into a series about a Missouri mountain family who discovers oil and moves to New York City. CBS changed the locale to Beverly Hills, because it would be cheaper to film there, and because it lent itself to a title: The Beverly Hillbillies. Almost immediately, it was the #1 show on TV. In fact, a handful of 1963 shows still rank among the 30 most-watched scripted TV episodes of all time.
(One of my favorites when I was a kid - and I still enjoy the reruns now!)

FABULOUS FLOP

SHOW: The Ugliest Girl in Town (1968)

PREMISE: In order to stay in London with his British girlfriend, an American man dresses in drag and lands work as a fashion model. Despite looking nothing like a woman (his face wasn’t even shaved), he becomes the toast of the swinging ’60s fashion world because of his “unique” appearance.

OUTCOME: It ran for 20 episodes.

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.”

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.
