What is a zucchiniís favorite game to play?

Why is the traditional chefís jacket double-breasted?

To hide stains. French chef Marie-Antoine CarÍme designed it in the mid-1800s, making it white to emphasize the cleanliness of the kitchen and double-breasted so it could be buttoned either way to cover up stains.

(Cool - I never knew that!)
By the fifth season of The Brady Bunch in 1973, the six kids in the cast were all teenagers (or about to be), and the ratings reflected a major drop in young viewers. The producersí solution: a new kid. Midway through the season, Mrs. Bradyís brother and wife go away on an overseas archaeological dig and leave their eight-year-old son Oliver (Robbie Rist) in the Bradysí care. Oliver became the center of the kinds of story lines previously served by the now-too-old Bobby or Cindyóbreaking a lamp or making a mess, and trying to cover it up, for example. It didnít work. The ratings kept dropping across all age groups, so ABC canceled The Brady Bunch in spring 1974.
(Not surprising that it didn't work - it truly changed the dynamics of the show in my opinion, plus I didn't like that kid at all!)
Bob Hope once guest-starred on I Love Lucy and ad-libbed the entire episode.
(He was one emoticon dude!)
