What did one pickle say to the other?
“You mean a great dill to me.”
What unusual breed was Hooch, the drooling, house-wrecking yard dog in the 1989 Tom Hanks film comedy Turner & Hooch?
He was a Dogue de Bourdeau, aka French Mastiff.
After David Letterman moved from NBC late night to CBS in 1993, NBC refused to allow him to take his most famous comedy bits with him, claiming they were the network’s intellectual property. Instead of dropping the bits, Letterman and his staff simply renamed them:
* Viewer Mail became the CBS Mailbag.
* Paul Shaffer and the World’s Most Dangerous Band became the CBS Orchestra starring Paul Shaffer.
* The Top Ten List became The Late Show Top Ten List.
* The recurring character Larry “Bud” Melman used his real name, Calvert DeForest.
Do not eat: The glass front of a standard TV is actually leaded crystal, containing about 2% lead.
