Captain: Are you happy now that you’re in the army?
Private: Yes, sir.
Captain: And what were you before you were in the army?

What names are bellowed in the shouting contest held annually at the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival?

Stella and Stanley. The anguished cries are in tribute to the most famous scene in Williams’s New Orleans–based play A Streetcar Named Desire, which was made even more famous by Marlon Brando in the 1951 movie version.
(I knew Stella was one of them, but I didn't get Stanley!)

The February 3, 2008 broadcast of The CW’s newsmagazine CW Now aired opposite the Super Bowl on Fox. The Super Bowl brought in more than 95 million viewers, making it one of the most-watched broadcasts in TV history. But CW Now is the show that set the record. About 349,000 people tuned in, making it the least-watched prime-time show in network television history.
