You’ll Laugh, I’d Bet My Life

 84 replies

The merriment at AG continues, and your MC Pomp has some choice flicks lined up, Daddy-O!

Your friendly neighborhood editor-man here, and since I’m forced to provide y’all with an introduction of sorts, first up I’m going off on a wildly different comedy tangent, but one that has a distinct artistic connection to Pomp’s offering, and I don’t mean they’re in black & white.

Dah-da-da-dum, click, click.
Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.
I’m sure some of these were written, not all, but you can’t tell any difference.
One of my favorite scenes. “…I was blind for two days.”
Progressive views re: relationships for the ’30s.
Just because.

The Paramount Marx Bros. films are classics, Room Service (RKO) is close, the MGM productions are OK until Go West when they declined from disappointing to just bad.

Now go, and never darken my towels again.

I went to a job interview one time and the lady was robust. Me mentally, do not look down, do not look down, shit. She was super cool and half her breasts were hanging out.

I don’t know, most of that stuff isn’t given to the public for 20 years or longer. I think it was designed in the late 50’s. And wasn’t released until the mid 80’s.

There would be, propulsion have change in the military. I don’t remember what the design was but if you would look up in the sky and see a vapor trail that looked like a rope with knots in it was one of the last ones I knew about. Most of that stuff went to satellites. Cheaper.

Now that I got the covid vaccine I’m going to start dating again, and so I added a picture from my friend’s wedding that his now-wife and her cousin said were good, plus my female friend from Germany (I like to run my pictures by women first since they’re better at judging them than I am).

So in the middle of talking to a girl I matched with I uploaded that picture, and suddenly she stopped replying to me. I wonder if my female friends gave me bad advice.

“The question is not when do we eliminate the virus in the country,” said Paul Offit, the director of the Vaccine Education Center and an expert in virology and immunology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Rather, it’s when do we have the virus sufficiently under control? “We’ll have a much, much lower case count, hospitalization count, death count,” Offit said. “What is that number that people are comfortable with?” In his view, “the doors will open” when the country gets to fewer than 5,000 new cases a day, and fewer than 100 deaths.

This is something I wonder about. When is it the end, and when do we go back to normal – or progress to a new sense of normalcy?

Given the last year, it we will return to normal well before we should. Over and over again we’ve erred on the side of not doing enough, so I’d expect once we get to the point where everybody who wants a vaccine can get one (2 months?) we’ll be pretty much back to normal over the protestations of the experts.

Since we’re doing more comedy, I’ll note that I probably won’t watch this one today, I’m just dropping it here because the portrait bears a striking resemblance to a well-known actor in a comedy series that would be a cult classic, except it was much too popular for that.

Brian Regan has got some great stuff on Netflix.

This is my favorite scene on “Seinfeld,” combined with an outtake that is, in my mind, even better.

If you can find it, “Just Shoot Me” is also fantastic. A bit dated (1997-2003), but still great. I’ve provided one of its funniest scenes. I think it was at one time syndicated on TBS, but I’m not sure where it’s at now. One of those channels you can only find in a hotel in the middle of the night, I think.

For context: the woman with the puffed up lips is having an allergic reaction to some dip she eats, which unbeknownst to her is made from peanuts. The scene below comes from her appearance on a nationally-syndicated morning talk show, which she is guesting on to give out tips for makeup.

Snappy writing. Steven Levitan of “Modern Family” fame was the creator/lead writer of this show.

this post needs a 10 star rating … Groucho & Co my favorites (as evidenced by the numerous quotes of his I often use in my blues shows)

pompano, you and I have so much in common it’s scary … for that matter YOU’RE scary … meet me at midnight in the moonlight, you’re my kinda girl

———————————————————————————————————————-

so just read this and wondered … what, exactly, is a Hunter Dozier? and am I required to read the ENTIRE article, and how can I get MY OWN $25 million contract to play a game? please advise … willing to undertake rigorous Time Travel if necessary

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Royals and third baseman Hunter Dozier have agreed to a $25 million, four-year contract that includes a fifth-year option, a person with knowledge of the agreement told The Associated Press on Sunday.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal was pending a physical. ESPN.com was first to report the extension, which buys out two years of free agency and includes several escalators and bonuses.
“As I’ve said many times, we want to keep as many of our talented players as we possibly can,” Royals general manager Dayton Moore said last week, when the team reported for full-squad workouts in Surprise, Arizona. “We’ll always look to do that when the opportunity is right. There is a rhythm to that, there is a timing to all those decisions.”
