A sad statistical reckoning (and two firsts)

Post by Dug » Thu Apr 10, 2008 12:23 pm

If the "search" feature is to be believed, this is only the third time that the word ventriloquism has appeared on CPS.

None of us has had the honesty to discuss -- or even mention -- a chimichanga.

And, until now, Nipsey Russell had never been mentioned on these hallowed pages.

And here we thought we were so amusing and well-rounded.

The fault is as much mine as anyone's. But really, we must resolve to do better.

A quick search of the web failed to find a picture of Nipsey Russell!

Anyhow, here's a chimi:

Actually, I found a great picture of Nipsey with Mrs. Zed, but it wasn't an active web page anymore... so I can't post it.

Darn. :(

You are a careful man, Dug; I see you've put the strict google filter on.

Me? I don't bother with it. You get more pictures that way.

Indeed. Risque photos of Nipsey Russell are among the last things I'd want to see.

Heck, I didn't even know how to spell ventriloquism. Actually, I just cut and pasted it to be safe.

No Nipsy Russel? Has Ruth Buzzi been informed of this!?!

I guess, for some, it pays to be ignorant

I, for one, look forward to putting an end to this Masquerade Party once and for all!

MMMM Allsups' chimis, delicious. Though there is a reason we call them gut bombs!

Truly you are a pop culturista after my own heart.

Did you ever see the sublimely bizarre Ruth Buzzi - Jim Nabors collaboration in Sid and Marty Krofft's "Far Out Space Nuts"? I'll bet we've never discussed that here, either.

So, what else have we missed?

Once again, it is apparent that I need to watch more television.

As with the case with most discoveries in life! We should just watch more TV.

I didn't like ventriloquism until I saw Jeff Dunham. Now that dude is pee your pants funny.

I recall, but not clearly, Far Out Space Nuts. What about Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, Lidsville, Wonderbug, and Dr. Shrinker (with Billy Barty)?

Were there any hacks as ubiquitous as Sid and Marty Krofft?

"Marshall, Will, and Holly, on a routine expedition, met the greatest earthquake ever known. High on a rapids, it struck their tiny raft and plunged them down a thousand feet below..." :whistling: and into a temporal anomaly?!?

I wonder if anyone caught the two game show references? I mean, Match Game would have been too easy....and would have led us to Charles Nelson Riley, who often smoked a pipe on the show.

I think the specific lesson taught by this thread is that you should've been watching more TV 30 years ago.

I did some searching and the Jim Neighbors/Ruth Buzzy combo was from The Lost Saucer. Far Out Space Nuts had Bob Denver and Chuck McCann.

KABOOM! You are indeed correct, sir. Man, I must be getting old; confusing Ruth Buzzi and Bob Denver just might invalidate my "Child of the 70s" status...
