A 90-year-old man went to the doctor for his annual checkup. His wife accompanied him. As soon as they got into the exam room, the doctor said, “I’m going to need a urine sample and a stool sample.”
The man was hard of hearing, so he looked at his wife and shouted, “What does he want?”
The wife shouted back, “He wants your underwear.”

MISSED-CAST

THE BRADY BUNCH
Gene Hackman almost got the part of Mike Brady. Producers cast Robert Reed instead—they didn’t think Hackman was well-known enough.

GILLIGAN’S ISLAND
Among the actors almost cast: Jayne Mansfield as Ginger, Dabney Coleman as the Professor, and Raquel Welch as Mary Ann.

THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW
Writer Carl Reiner originally sold this show about a TV comedy writer and his young wife as Head of the Family. Reiner’s choice for the lead role: Johnny Carson.

(This really makes me think about how different these shows might have been with these stars, plus how different the stars lives might have been if they'd been cast.)
