A man and his wife were deeply asleep when the phone rang at 2 A.M. The wife picked it up and listened groggily. Then she said, “How in the world should I know? It’s ninety-five miles away,” and hung up.
“Who was that?” the husband asked.
His wife replied, “Some crazy woman wanting to know if the coast was clear.”
Who was the first athlete to appear on the cover of Vogue magazine?

Track star Marion Jones, in January 2001, shortly after she won five medals—three gold and two bronze—at the 2002 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. Jones was stripped of those medals in December 2007 after admitting she had used performance-enhancing drugs.

The Flintstones premiered today in 1960. That show sure did like “rock” puns. Here are a few characters that appeared on it.

* Cary Granite (Cary Grant)

* Stony Curtis (Tony Curtis)

* Ed Sulleystone (Ed Sullivan)

* Perry Masonite (Perry Mason)

* Ann-Margrock (Ann-Margret)

* The Rolling Boulders (The Rolling Stones)
Wilma Flintstone wore shoes just once.
