On a sticky summer day, a man got out of the shower and said to his wife, “Honey, it’s just too hot to wear any clothes today. What do you think the neighbors would say if I mowed the lawn with nothing on?”
His wife replied, “I think they’d say that I married you for your money.”

In TV’s Star Trek universe, what are tribbles?

Furry little purring creatures that are born pregnant and continue multiplying based on how much they eat—and they’re always hungry.

Philo T. Farnsworth, the inventor of television, was born on this day in 1906.

Even though Farnsworth invented TV, he only appeared on television twice. Once was for an interview at the local station in Rigby, Idaho, near where he had developed the concept for TV as a teenager. The other was on I’ve Got a Secret, in which celebrity contestants attempted to guess his accomplishment (inventor of TV) using only yes-and-no questions. When the panel couldn’t guess his secret, he won $80 and a carton of Winston cigarettes.
