Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Nobel who?
Nobel so I knocked.
Where are the only two saddle joints in the human body?

At the base of both thumbs. The saddle joint allows the thumb to move back and forth and from side to side, and to reach across the palm to grasp things between the fingers and the thumb.

Two weird game shows

Concept: Two contestants compete to see who can finish a crossword puzzle first. (Have you ever watched somebody else fill out a crossword puzzle? It’s pretty boring.)

I remember seeing a tv show about 2 contestants vying to complete Word Search puzzles - but I don't remember a crossword puzzle game show - guess I was just too young! emoticon

That’s pretty much it: Celebrities came on and bowled. Frequent guests included Telly Savalas, Roy Rogers, Bobby Darin, Carroll O’Connor, and Sammy Davis Jr. Amazingly, the show ran for seven years and inspired a similar show called Celebrity Tennis in 1974.

I totally would have watched this one - I love to watch bowling even now. And to watch some of my favorite celebrities bowling - oh, yeah! I would have loved to see Sammy Davis, Jr. bowling - he is still my all time favorite performer ever! But I don't even remember this one being on TV and I can't use the excuse that I was too young this time. emoticon
Alka-Seltzer sales nearly doubled when their commercials began showing two pills instead of one.

    I remember the show "Celebrity Bowling" being on, but I don't know if I ever watched it. The tennis show I don't remember at all!
