    • Ted: (reading a joke obituary on the air) And now we come to a sad part of the news; Wee Willie Williams is dead, at 110. For a long time, Wee Willie Williams was the oldest living citizen in Minneapolis. There were other citizens in Minneapolis who were older; however, they happen to be dead. When last interviewed, Wee Willie had no immediate plans for the future, but hoped to include traveling, gardening...and breathing. Wee Willie had two main hobbies, which were whittling, and going down to the bus station and not doing anything. He also enjoyed playing his favorite little game, which he called 'ignoring people'. How it was played was, no matter what anyone would say to him, he would turn his head away, and stare off into space. But look at it this way; now he can play it even better because he doesn't have to worry about blinking. This is Ted Baxter saying good night and good news!
