    Does anyone else mind that this forum has been taken over by personal blogging, which horns in the instant comments open and scrolls the page, disrupting the spontaneous humor ABOUT THE COMIC that we used to enjoy here?

    Later, Bud. Hey now! Tonight’s bon mot comes in the form of a true story about Don Rickles and Frank Sinatra in Las Vegas. It seems that when Don was young, new to Vegas, and not yet really in the loop of the well known marquis performers, he was in a restaurant with a young lady when he saw Sinatra come in. He knew Frank well enough to say hello so he excused himself and snuck over to Frank’s table and, unbeknownst to his date, asked Frank if he’d help him impress the girl. Frank said, “Sure, Don. How can I help?” Don asked him to wait a few minutes and then stop by their table and make a point to greet Don graciously. Those of you who remember Rickles remember that he had a snap-back like a stepped on garden rake, right? Keep that in mind. As requested, Frank came over to Don’s table and said, “Well hello, Don! How’s it going?” to which Don snapped, “Frank! Can’t you see we’re having a conversation here???” Only Rickles would have the chutzpah to pull something like that on Frank Sinatra and to hear Frank tell that story is to know he couldn’t believe it himself at the time but he immediately knew it was Don being Don and he loved it.

    OK. That’s my time. Drive like hell!

    Silver. O U T !

    Tonight’s joke is short and (I hope) sweet:

    A man takes his wife a glass of water and two aspirin. “But I don’t have a headache,” she says.

    The man smiles in triumph, and says “a-HA!!”

    Poor Miss Piggy;

    Anyone who streams “The Muppet Show” on Disney+ will see a declaimer first — warning of “offensive content.”

    This has gone too far!

    Arby’s should be named after the sound of the violent diarrhea eating the food there causes!

    Did anyone check to see if Peggy Lee minded? Maybe she would have enjoyed the honor.

    Willie Mays, “The Say Hey Kid”, will turn 90 this coming May. One of the all time greats of baseball.

    The Raffel Brothers get their meat from local highway departments.

    What is green and smells like pork? This joke is shortened out of respect for my GoComics account.

    I’d venture a wager that more people know who Miss Piggy is than who remember Peggy Lee.

    The perfect couple: Miss Piggy, and Reverend Jim Ignakowski, from ‘Taxi’.

    I can’t make sense out of the Willie Mays blurb. There are lots of oldest living hall of famers out there right now.

    RE: ARBY"S I understood it was because they were selling Roast Beef sandwiches.

    So, as a token of respect you name your character after a public figure, and then out of respect you retract the recognizable part? Sounds like someone didn’t think this through beforehand, or found out later that the public figure was Not Amused.
