4. WELL, WE LOST ANOTHER MUNCHKIN YESTERDAY….on tuesday, KARL SLOVER died at the age of 93 in GEORGIA…SLOVER was one of four remaining munchkins…right now only THREE remain of the 124 that were used in my favorite movie “THE WIZARD OF OZ.”
KARL SLOVER was the first trumpet player in the LAND OF OZ, plus he was a soldier and was a “sleepyhead.”
here’s KARL SLOVER as a “sleepyhead.” he’s the one on the right…
KARL SLOVER was the smallest of all of the munchkins…at the age of 21 he was only FOUR FOOT FOUR INCHES….
here’s KARL SLOVER in recent years…
5. WAY TO GO SOUTH DAKOTA!!! guess who’s riding on the SOUTH DAKOTA float in the MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE in NEW YORK CITY? non other than the legend, NEIL DIAMOND…
NEIL will not only be riding our float, he will also be performing..hmm…i wonder who pulled off this awesome deal?
6. there’s a FACEBOOK attempt and other attempts to get KIM KARDASHIAN and her family off of tv….man, i’ll do ANYTHING i can do to make this happen…..
7. speaking of KIM KARDASHIAN, she is being sued by a beauty care company that said the KARDASHIANS are making unfounded claims on behalf of a rival company’s hair removal product….according to KIM, the product makes removing unwanted unsightly body hair as easy as removing unwanted unsightly husbands…
8. a survey found that THANKSGIVING will cost us 13 percent more this year…hmm…apparently the turkeys have formed a union….my bachelor friends say it’s because of higher prices of peanut butter…
9. a recent study found that one out of five americans suffer from hearing loss….oh wait….I SAID THAT ONE OUT OF FIVE AMERICANS SUFFER FROM HEARING LOSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
10. a new study of 3,000 BRITISH women found that women can keep a secret for only an average of 32 minutes before they have to tell someone…your only hope is that they tell it to a man because we’re not listening anyway….
11. sources say that the BRITISH are killing their pets to collect insurance money….”what’s that you say lassie? TIMMY’S GOT A GUN?”
12. singer PATTY LABELLE is being sued by a young mother who claims the legendary singer cursed at her and tossed half a bottle of water at her after she told the GRAMMY winning singer to “buzz off” when LABELLE criticized her for not being attentive to her 18 month old child….this doesn’t sound like a lawsuit, it’s sounds like your average day on “THE VIEW.”
13. PAMELA ANDERSON has been selected by a canadian tv producer to play the VIRGIN MARY…really? oh well, it is the season of miracles…
14. JOKE OF THE DAY:
A blonde suspects her boyfriend of cheating on her, so she goes out and buys a gun. She goes to his apartment unexpectedly and when she opens the door she finds him in the arms of a redhead. Well, the blonde is really angry. She opens her purse to take out the gun, and as she does so she is overcome with grief. She takes the gun and puts it to her head.
The boyfriend yells, “No, honey, don’t do it.”
The blonde replies, “Shut up, you’re next.”
HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY EVERYBODY!!
