    Norman is that dense for his age that he doesn’t know to whistle?

    Welcome to the 21st Century. It was revealed publicly decades ago that pro wrestling (like Roller Derby) is scripted with the outcome of every match determined long in advance.

    After years of fruitless effort on my part my daughter learned to whistle while she was in grad school. I never could talk like Donald Duck.

    Several organizations, such as the WWE, script out each individual match in addition to scripting out the ongoing storylines and character gimmicks.

    The athletics you see on TV are real, and people can sustain real injuries.

    But even some of the newer crop (late 1990s+) have openly admitted to how fake it is.

    And it’s not a new trend, either; this goes back at least as far as the 1970s. If you’ll read “I Ain’t Got Time To Bleed” by Jesse Ventura, he talks about how his very first match had one of two scripted endings. If his opponent (a prominent face) thought he had talent, the face would give a signal and then let Ventura put him over the ropes (which, at the time, would have been an instant disqualification for Ventura). If, however, no signal was given, it meant that he thought Ventura stank; Ventura would then take two kicks to the face and then it would be his obligation to flop.

    I wouldn’t say fake – just well practiced.

    FATHER of the Year”?
    With that kind of a to-do list, I’d sooner believe “FATHEAD of the Year”!

    I remember in the early strips when Ralph was a pro wrestler called the dismantler
