  • A funny episode

    Dear Uncle Abdul is one of my favorite episodes. Instead of Hawkeye and B.J. as the source of the comedy it is Charles and Margaret. The episode starts like all of the M*A*S*H letter episodes with this one as the only one written by Klinger to his Uncle Abdul describing a typical day. Hawkeye and B.J. is finding out who's the better joke teller. By the way the joke is not funny at all. It was when Charles takes Klinger bird hunting which was hysterical. Charles show his total contempt for Klinger by making him his bird dog and Klinger flushes out a bird. Charles then shoots the bird and hits a land mine. That was a riot and when they return Margaret complains about her foot locker and Klinger says that the Army only replaces it if destroyed in combat. Then Margaret takes Winchesters rifle and shoots it. Klinger ends the letter of his failure in getting kicked out of the Army it is because everybody is crazy.
