What is a zucchini’s favorite game to play?

Squash.

Why is the traditional chef’s jacket double-breasted?

To hide stains. French chef Marie-Antoine Carême designed it in the mid-1800s, making it white to emphasize the cleanliness of the kitchen and double-breasted so it could be buttoned either way to cover up stains.

(Cool - I never knew that!)
______________
By the fifth season of The Brady Bunch in 1973, the six kids in the cast were all teenagers (or about to be), and the ratings reflected a major drop in young viewers. The producers’ solution: a new kid. Midway through the season, Mrs. Brady’s brother and wife go away on an overseas archaeological dig and leave their eight-year-old son Oliver (Robbie Rist) in the Bradys’ care. Oliver became the center of the kinds of story lines previously served by the now-too-old Bobby or Cindy—breaking a lamp or making a mess, and trying to cover it up, for example. It didn’t work. The ratings kept dropping across all age groups, so ABC canceled The Brady Bunch in spring 1974.
(Not surprising that it didn't work - it truly changed the dynamics of the show in my opinion, plus I didn't like that kid at all!)

A theater critic got up and walked out of a Broadway play after the first act. The play’s producer, who was standing in the lobby, stopped him on his way out. “Why are you leaving so soon? There are still two acts left,” said the producer.
“I know,” said the critic as he walked out the door. “But I’m pretty sure the person who wrote that horrible first act also wrote the other two.”

Ever notice how many of today’s prime-time dramas include at least one pop song, often appearing over a montage? One of the first shows to do this was Miami Vice, which used well-known songs by Phil Collins and Glenn Frey. But most shows don’t have the budget for big-name music, so they hire a music supervisor to seek out and secure the rights for songs. One of the biggest in the industry is Alexandra Patsavas, who has found songs for The O.C., Grey’s Anatomy, and Chuck. In turn, bands whose songs are featured in shows get paid a moderate fee ($20,000 to $50,000 or more) and get great exposure—Snow Patrol and The Fray both earned mainstream exposure and Grammy nominations after their songs were featured on Grey’s Anatomy.

    I am still a paleface, but I think that is politically incorrect now.
I am drawn to many TV shows by there intro music.

SCANDAL ON THE SET

Near the end of a Jackie Mason comedy routine on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, Sullivan gave the comedian a “wrap it up” gesture from off-camera. Mason waved it off; Sullivan mistakenly thought Mason’s wave was obscene … and that the viewers had seen it. Sullivan exploded backstage and canceled Mason’s six upcoming appearances. Mason filed a lawsuit, which was later dropped, and Sullivan invited Mason back to the show in 1966, and publicly apologized.

One day a grandfather asked his grandson about school and was shocked to learn that he’d gotten a bad grade in history. “How could you do so poorly in history?” the grandfather asked. “I always did well in that class.”
The grandson replied, “That’s because there wasn’t so much history to study when you were in school.”

A meteoroid is a small piece of cosmic debris in outer space. It becomes a meteor (aka shooting star) when it begins burning up upon entering the earth’s atmosphere. Any part of it that survives and crashes on the earth’s surface is a meteorite.
