random thoughts for thursday january 20th, 2011



your daily blog is sponsored once again, by DISCOUNT VAC AND DAKOTA HOT TUBS, BOTH IN ABERDEEN.


1.  “LAUGH-IN” veteran and character actor ARTE JOHNSON is celebrating birthday number 82 today….you may remember him for playing a couple of well known characters on the show…remember the guy who’s line was “VERY INTERESTING.”

and who can forget the loveable old man, opposite of the “purse clobbering” old lady played by RUTH BUZZI….

here’s ARTE JOHNSON today on his 82nd birthday…ARTE is on the left….

and here he is with his good friend JAMES MACARTHUR who just passed away recently…JAMES, of course, played “DANNO” on “HAWAII FIVE-O”…

2.  what about RUTH BUZZI?  well, she’s now 74 years old, and still very active…

3.  CONGRATULATIONS are going out to WARNER HIGH SCHOOL senior, BRIANA JUNG, for winning “MISS VOLLEYBALL-CLASS ‘B'” recently….

BRIANA is in my son MITCHELL’S class, so we’ve watched her grow up all the way thru school….BRIANA definetly deserves this award. she’s one heck of a volleyball player, and i’m sure it didn’t hurt having her MOM be her coach..ha ha…CONGRATS BRIANA…by the way, keep an eye on her in college….she could do some serious damage in college volleyball.

4.  well, last night JEANNIE AND I, “FINALLY” went to see “TRUE GRIT” at carmike theaters….WHAT A TERRIFIC MOVIE…as you may recall, i was not going to see this movie, because i was mad that they remade a JOHN WAYNE movie…to me, you don’t touch JOHN WAYNE westerns…HOWEVER, i will say that this movie was VERY VERY GOOD….JEFF BRIDGES, MATT DAMON, AND JOSH BROLIN star in this movie, but to me, the future star that steals the movie is 13 year old HAILEE SEINFELD…she plays the role originally made famous by KIM DARBY….let me tell you this, she is TERRIFIC in this role, and i’m sure we’ll see incredible things from her in the future….

here are JEFF BRIDGES, MATT DAMON, AND HAILEE SEINFELD at the world premiere of the movie…

HAILEE looks like she’s wearing a “JIFFY POP POPCORN” dress…ha ha

5.  we, of course, had popcorn last night at the movies…i think i have only had ONE NIGHT where i didn’t get popcorn at the movies…it’s almost against the law to not get popcorn at the movies…..i’ll never make that mistake again!!!

6.  it was colder in our area yesterday than it was in ALASKA…YES, IN ALASKA…that bites…..hopefully it will warm up next week…isn’t it sad that 18 above zero is considered a WARMING TREND?

7.  funeral homes across the country are being rented for other events than just funerals….i’m thinking about renting a room at SPITZER MILLER FUNERAL HOME to do my morning show…that way i’ll be in the right place when my jokes die every morning…

8.  a woman in LOS ANGELES gave birth on the shoulder of the road on the 605 freeway…to show you how bad traffic is in L.A., the lady wasn’t even pregnant when she left her house!!!

9.  JENNIFER ANISTON said that her hairstyle “THE RACHEL” was the ugliest haircut she has ever seen…she’s obviously never seen “THE BIEBER.”

10.  new AMERICAN IDOL host STEVEN TYLER, said that he used to snort the sleeping aid lunesta to get high…you can read it in his new book, “HOW THE HELL AM I STILL ALIVE?”

11.  LOS ANGELES prosecutors say that they’re still deciding whether to file domestic violence charges against MEL GIBSON…sources say that he could get four years in jail…or in HOLLYWOOD terms…FOUR MINUTES…

12.  in GREECE, a monk was detained at the airport when the skeleton of a nun was found in his luggage…no wait..correct that…it’s just the plot for the new movie “HANGOVER 2″…



 A young ventriloquist is touring the clubs and stops to entertain at a bar in a small town. He’s going through his usual run of dumb blond jokes when a big blond woman in the fourth row stands on her chair and says, “OK jerk, I’ve heard just about enough of your  demeaning blond jokes. What makes you think you can stereotype women that way? What do a person’s physical attributes have to do with their worth as a human being? It’s guys like you who keep women like me from being respected at work and in my community, of reaching my full potential as a person…  because you and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against not only blondes but women at large… all in the name of humor.”

Flustered, the ventriloquist begins to apologize, when the blond pipes up, “You stay out of this mister, I’m talking to that little JERK  on your knee!”
