Son: I found it on the sidewalk.
Father: Are you sure it was lost?
Son: Yes! I saw a lady looking all over the place for it.

    I am a HUGE fan of Dot-Marie Jones and knew this about her. I saw her arm wrestle a host on one of the entertainment shows. And of course she won. Thanks for posting. =)

Two old friends were walking down the street when one turned to the other and said, Did you know that Im a walking economy?
His friend, confused, asked, What do you mean by that?
Well, the man said, my hairline is in recession, my stomach is a victim of inflation, and the combination of these factors has put me in a deep depression.

What is an onychophagist?

A person who bites his or her nails.

(Wow, who knew there was a name for that? I used to be a nail-biter big time, but I stopped cold turkey when I got engaged. I haven't bitten my nails since - over 21 years now! My parents tried and tried to bribe me to stop - they bought me a transistor radio (who remembers those?) when I had stopped one time. They took it away when I started biting my nails again. They also bought me troll dolls (I absolutely LOVED them and still do-I have several including wedding trolls currently) - but that didn't work either for long. I amazed myself when I realized that I had finally beaten the nail-biting for good when I got married and still had nails after a full year! emoticon !)

Laverne & Shirley stars Penny Marshall (Laverne) and Cindy Williams (Shirley) often clashed over minor thingssuch as which actress had more lines in an episode or the most square footage in her dressing room. As the series continued its seven-year run (197683), Williams became increasingly resentful of the power she felt Marshall wielded. (Marshalls brother, Garry Marshall, had created the series.) The feud finally peaked in 1982, when Williams walked off the set, claiming that producers were using her real-life pregnancy to force her out. She filed a $20 million lawsuit that was later settled out of court. That also meant that the final season of Laverne & Shirley didnt have Shirley in it.

(I guess some of those fights Laverne and Shirley were actually real, huh?)

HOW BOUT A CALLBACK?

Peter Scolari starred as the father in the TV version of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Throughout the series, (19972000) run, theres a running joke between the shows characters. The joke: No one can remember the name of the other guy from the 1980s Tom Hanks sitcom Bosom Buddies. That other guy: Peter Scolari.

(I have always thought that Peter Scolari was every bit as good as Tom Hanks - but for some reason, he never seemed to hit it big.)

Leo was talking to his friend Otto. He said, Did you know that Im one of sixteen children?
Otto replied, No, I had no idea. Why do you think your parents had so many children?
I think the problem was that my mother was hard of hearing, Leo said. When my mom and dad went to bed each night, Dad would ask, Do you want to go to sleep or what? and Mom would say, What?

What 2-inch-long ocean creature is one of the noisiest animals on earth?

The pistol shrimp, which makes a noise that can reach up to 218 decibels30 decibels higher than the sound made by the blue whale. It does this by snapping its oversized pincer to fire off a 60-mile-an-hour blast of water that creates a low-pressure bubble with an internal temperature that is hotter than the sun. The bubble quickly bursts, emitting a high-decibel boom that stuns the tiny shrimps prey and provides it with food.
(That's pretty cool!)

FOREIGN SHOW: Mexicos El Notifiero con Brozo

ENGLISH TRANSLATION: The News with Brozo

DETAILS: Its Mexicos take on The Daily Show if it were hosted by a clown in a green wig. Brozo (actor Victor Trujillo) started out in 1988 as the host of a kids show called The Caravan but morphed into a political satirist. Brozo is so revered in Mexico that he demands (and gets) absolutely no state censorship of his program. The result is that he can lampoon any person or issue he cares to and get away with it. Meanwhile, politicians and personalities go to great lengths to get on the show, knowing that the media exposure is worth any potshots theyre liable to receive from Brozo.
