Oscar approached a gorgeous woman in the grocery store and said to her, “I’ve lost my wife in here, and it would be so nice if you could just spend a few minutes talking to me.”
“Why do you want me to do that?” she asked, confused.
“Because,” Oscar replied, “every time I talk to a beautiful woman, my wife always appears out of nowhere.”

What famous American writer penned Rosemary Clooney’s 1951 hit song “Come On-a My House”?

William Saroyan, with his cousin Ross Bagdasarian (aka David Seville). The two, who were of Armenian ancestry, based their song on an Armenian folk tune. (David Seville is the creator of the Chipmunks (Alvin, Simon & Theodore) and also wrote Witch Doctor)

THE SHOW MUST GO ON

In its 1983–84 season, Three’s Company fell out of the top ten for the first time since its beginning in 1977, tumbling to #35. Producers decided to make massive changes, so at the end of the season, Terri (Priscilla Barnes) moves to Hawaii, Janet (Joyce DeWitt) gets married, and Jack (John Ritter) falls in love with (and marries) a girl named Vicky (Mary Cadorette). Then Terri and Janet were written out, and the show became about Jack, Vicky, and their new landlord, Vicky’s disapproving, meddlesome father (Robert Mandan). The show came back in the 1984–85 season, retitled Three’s a Crowd. It didn’t work. The show finished #57 in the ratings for the year and was canceled.

RICHARD FEYNMAN
Feynman was renowned in scientific circles as a true genius. His first job after graduating from Princeton and MIT was as a nuclear physicist for the Manhattan Project, which developed the first atomic bombs. Feynman had a fun side, too: He liked painting, history, playing the bongo drums … and safecracking. He was especially adept at figuring out combination locks and earned a reputation as a crack safecracker during his Manhattan Project days. While working at New Mexico’s Los Alamos National Laboratory, he easily—and routinely—cracked safes containing nuclear secrets.
