|You want me to unleash what is going on in my head? Are you sure? This could get scary...|
* throws a Happy Fun Ball at Hoeech *
I taunted it so you might want to watch out for that.
Okay, I'll throw a topic out there. Here? Favorite tv moments, as it relates to your real life at the time. Got it?
My dad loved All In The Family. It was Must See tv! I was around 10ish at the time. They had an episode where Sammy Davis Jr. dropped by Archie's House. Archie was a taxi driver at the time, and Sammy had left a briefcase in his cab. I'm pretty sure that was the setup. At the end, Sammy wanted a picture of the two of them together. As Meathead snapped the picture, Sammy turned and kissed Archie on the cheek!
Now, it was funny. It was classic. But, I had never seen my pops like that. He was laughing so hard, making laughing sounds I had never heard! He got up out of his lounger to go to the restroom, presumably to make a tickled tinkle! I never saw him like that again!
Anybody else have a moment, or show episode, that made an impression on your life?
Just an idea. I could talk about cranberries or suspenders, too.
|I remember the Carol Burnett sketch based on Gone With the Wind was like that for our family. We all laughed so hard.|
|I'm drawing a blank, but that mught be Happy Fun Ball's fault.|
I meant I couldn't think of anything offhand that made me laugh really hard. I do remember the sketch with the curtain rod.
