Happy Thanksgiving Week

Happy Thanksgiving Week!

Just got this little story yesterday from Darrell Pittman ….

So I was at Walmart earlier

A lady was looking at frozen turkeys, but she couldn’t find one big enough.

She asked the stock boy, “do these turkeys get any bigger?”

He replied with a straight face, “No ma’am, they’re dead.”

Made my week. ~ Darrell Pittman


Actor Bert Lahr

Along that same flat line of intelligent thought,

Here’s one from my own meanderings of long ago ….

First a little background info …

1) Bert Lahr, the Cowardly Lion actor in “The Wizard of Oz”, died on 12/04/1967.

2) Lahr’s last movie, “The Night They Raided Minsky’s,” was released about a month later, in late January 1968.

3) I went to see his last movie … and Lahr appeared in the opening credits scene.

As Lahr walked down the street toward the camera, this is the conversation I over-heard between a couple sitting behind me:

She: Isn’t that Bert Lahr?
He: Yes, that’s him.

She: I thought he died.
He: He did.

She: Oh! I guess they made this movie before he died.

Hmmm! Nearly a half century later, it still sounds as dumb today as it did in the first place.
