FEB 12 2017
SOME MORNINGS I GET UP WITH A  JUST PLAIN EMPTY HEAD..-- TODAY IS ONE OF THOSE DAYS,,,MAYBE THE CAFFEEN WILL HELP... ( AND THE MUFFIN TOPS... WHO BROUGHT THOSE???)

I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED LAST NIGHT IN THE CNN HISTORY OF COMEDY- I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THAT ALL COMEDY IS DERIVED FROM  "POTTY.. OR REPRODUCTIVE HUMOR"  
I HAVE LONG SAID.. 
"IT IS TOUGH  TO FIND
 FOR LOVE NOR MONEY
 A JOKE THAT IS CLEAN 
AND ALSO FUNNY"..
 BUT I DIDN'T REALLY MEAN IT..----- I THINK THERE IS THE UNEXPECTED HUMOR THAT MAKES YOU LAUGH AND SPIT COFFEE ALL OVER YOU KEYBOARDS...
 SOME  BUT NOT ALL SLAPSTICK -- "WHO'S ON FIRST?" ,"NO ,  WHO'S ON SECOND.. WHAT'S ON FIRST" -

THERE IS ALSO A MORE SITUATIONAL HUMOR WHERE YOU TRY AND PUT A VERY  PEQUILIAR SITUATION INTO  A NORMAL FRAME... THE CLASSIC OF LUCY IN THE CANDY FACTORY TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH THE  CANDY COMING DOWN THE  CONVEYER BELT WILL ALWAYS CAUSE PEOPLE TO SMILE- 

 THE TIDE TURNED  ABOUT THE TIME ARCHIE BUNKER RUNS OUT OF TOILET PAPER AND EDITH SAYS 
"I BOUGHT SOME , IT IS IN THE  CLOSET  IN THE  KITCHEN   " 

THERE WAS A RUN OF SITUATION COMEDIES THAT ALL SEEMED TO HAVE THE SAME GROUP OF WRITERS
THERE WERE THE  SCRIPTED 

BOB NEWHART "I AM SICK AND TIRED OF MAKING DECISIONS"  AND HE TURNS TO GET ON TH E ELEVATORS AND  2 ELEVATOR DOORS OPEN AT ONCE.

THE    MARRIED COUPLE   XXXX AND DICK VAN DYKE--  SHE JUST HAD A BABY AND FOUND OUT THERE WAS ANOTHER COUPLE IN THE HOISPTAL  WITH THE SAME NAME  WHO HAD A BABY  THE SAME DAY AND IS CONVINCED SHE HAD BEEN GIVEN THE WRONG BABY... SO INVITES THEM TO DINNER TO SWAP BABIES... AND - OPENS THE DOOR TO GREET THEM AND THEY ARE BLACK...

THAT MAUDE SHOW WAS FULL OF THEM -- ON TH EPHONE..."NO THIS IS MRS. FINDLEY,---  MR FINDLEY'S VOICE IS MUCH HIGHER"

BOB NEWHART ON THE PHONE WITH THE KING OF ENGLAND " THESE COLONISTS  HAVE A STRANGE THING GOING...  THEY TAKE A LEAF, ROLL IT UP TIGHT, AND PUT ONE END IN THEIR MOUTHS -- THEN SET FIRE TO THE OTHER END" 

 JOHNNY CARSON WAS SUPER AT THAT..----WITH THE  "I'LL CLOBBER  CLAUDE COOPER, THE KLEPTOMANIAC FROM CLEVELAND  WHO   COPPED MY CLEAN COPPER CLAPPERS  KEPT IN THE CLOSET & DISCOVERED BY  OUR CLEANING WOMAN CLARA CLIFFORD.

AND THE  UNSCRIPTED..
 JOHNNY HAD THE LONGEST LAUGH IN RECORDED TV HISTORY THE NIGHT ED?AMES? THREW AN AXE AT THE  OUTLINE OF A MAN- AND IT LODGED IN HIS CROTCH... OF ALL THE RESPONSES THAT MUST HAVE GONE THRU HIS HEAD WHILE PEOPLE WERE SHRIEKING WITH LAUGHTER...., HE SAID "I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW YOU WAS  JEWISH".

LIFE PRESENTS ONE WITH STRANGE SITUATIONS--- SOME VERY FUNNY... SOME YOU JUST CAN NOT MAKE UP...( AS IN JANINE'S BOOK DOGS DONKEYS AND CIRCUS -- ALL TRUE STORIES.. EXCEPT FOR A COUPLE OF HER BOYFRIENDS NAMES GOT CHANGED.) 

SOGO LOOK AT RERUNS OF THOSE COMIDIES  OF TEH 1970'S???? 
CNN HAS A SECOND SECTION ON COMEDY COMINIG ON THURSDAY NIGHT 9PM
I HOPE THEY DO BETTER WITH THE NEXT INSTALLMENT...
*****

SNOW STARTING AT NOON???? FOR 12 HOURS???? I HOPE ALL OUR KIDS CAN GET HERE AND STAY OVER....  IT COULD BE A BIG ONE...

    Saw that in reruns and nearly wet myself then I read it here on the DD and nearly wet myself again.

    Carlene, thanks for the laughs.

  2. I read an interview from the producers of the series, Carlene. They have many more episodes to come and I think you'll enjoy the others much more. I am a Carol Burnett show fan myself even at the 'young' age of 45.
