A defense attorney was cross-examining the coroner and asked, “Before you signed the victim’s death certificate, did you take his pulse?”
“No,” the coroner answered.
“Did you check to see if he was still breathing?”
“So you didn’t take any steps to make sure the man was actually dead?”
The coroner, tired of this line of questioning, said, “Well, the man’s brain was sitting in a jar on my desk … but for all I know, he could be out there practicing law somewhere.”
What end did the evil queen meet in the original version of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”?

In the 1812 Grimm Brothers fairy tale “Little Snow-White,” the queen was forced to put on a pair of red-hot iron shoes at Snow-White’s wedding, and dance until she collapsed and died.

The saga of The Doris Day Show

SEASON 1 (1968–69): Day played a widowed mother of two boys who lived on a northern California ranch with her father and a ranch hand.

SEASON 2 (1969–70): CBS didn’t think the show was working, so it remade The Doris Day Show into a workplace sitcom: Day commuted into San Francisco to be a secretary for a magazine. Day’s family was still mentioned and seen, but rarely.

SEASON 3 (1970–71): Day’s character and her sons moved into a San Francisco apartment.

SEASON 4 (1971–72): In an effort to make The Doris Day Show more like The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Day’s character was now alone in San Francisco (the boys were never seen again) and Day was promoted to staff writer at the magazine. The final changes lasted two years before the show was finally canceled in 1973.

(Wow-imagine if the networks would put that much effort into some of today's shows instead of airing them once and cancelling them!)
Only 8 out of every 100 pilot scripts purchased by a network will actually make it to air.

    Joke was great. TV shows stink or at least they seem that way to me.

    Loved the joke. Today they spend to much time making yet another reality show. One thing I got out of this if we put as much effort into living healthier and weight loss . we will see progress. Thank you.
