A man and his wife were having an argument about who should make the coffee each morning. The wife said, “You should do it, because you get up first.”
The husband argued, “But you make breakfast every day. Can’t you just make the coffee at the same time?”
The wife shot back, “No, you have to do it. It says in the Bible that the man should make the coffee.”
The husband, incredulous, said, “I don’t believe that. Show me where it says that.”
So the wife fetched the Bible, opened it to the New Testament, and showed him the tops of several pages, where it indeed said: “HEBREWS.”

THE SHOW MUST GO ON
In 1991, Bea Arthur let Golden Girls producers know she’d be leaving the show at the end of the season, the show’s seventh. NBC decided to end the series—in the final episode, Arthur’s character, Dorothy, marries her boyfriend and moves out of the Miami house she shares with her friends. The rest of the cast had no interest in leaving what was still a top-thirty show, and rival network CBS thought there was some life left in the series. It bought the rights and came up with a new concept called The Golden Palace: The three remaining ladies buy and run a Miami hotel. How’d the hotel do? Not so well. The Golden Palace floundered in the ratings, finishing the year at #57. CBS canceled it in early 1993.
Game show creator Chuck Barris (The Gong Show) wrote the 1962 hit song “Palisades Park.”
