    kishnevi (294553)

  17. I just checked. Obama is still scheduled to be President for all of 2015. And all of 2016, too. Looks like another “average” year.

  21. Wish everyone well this year and I hope I see 2016. I take it a year at a time. George Burns said he didn’t buy green bananas anymore but I’m not that bad. Kids and grandkids doing well. No complaints.

    Mike K (90dfdc)

  22. hang in there mister doctor K

    whatever happens, it’s gonna be frightfully amusing

    happyfeet (831175)

  23. When Mr Burns was 95 he was asked if he still smoked cigars. Yep, three a day. And whether he still drank bourbon. Yep, three glasses a day. He was then asked what his doctors thought of that and he said, “They’re all dead!”

    Gazzer (c44509)

  24. #16

    It was a weird game. I thought they outplayed Oregon in the first half. FSU’s offense moved the well. The second half turnovers, most of which were unforced, did them in.

    Gerald A (d65c67)

  25. Gazzer – My wife and I saw George Burns on his 98 Birthday, he was doing a show at Caesar’s. He said he feels good, as long as they pay me. It was his last show at Caesar’s.

    mg (31009b)

  26. mg his stated goal was to play Vegas om his hundredth birthday. He made it to 100 but was not well enough to perform if I recall.
    He also said, “At my age making love is like playing pool with a rope.”

    Gazzer (c44509)

  27. Great Rose Bowl. Fun Sugar Bowl so far.

    JD (cf960d)

  28. Sorry for the bad news, Red.

    JD (cf960d)

  29. He never swore in his shows, Gazzer, but he left you with some not so clean but funny images.

    mg (31009b)

  30. mg Google Max Miller and you will find another comic in the same vein. That my father worked with.

    Gazzer (c44509)

  31. Hum, hum-hum, hum,
    College Football,
    I don’t see some of the usual comments by some folk.

    MD in Philly (f9371b)

  32. JD, guessing you like the Sugar Bowl? SEC is out of it this year, and should be too….

    It will give the entire league a sore spot to go after for next year when we get two teams into the Playoff Semis!!!


    reff (4dcda2)

  33. The world could use a few more comedians like Mr. Miller.
    Thanks for the education, Gazzer. Your father must have enjoyed the laughs.

  34. Your daily Chicken Little, c/o Evans-Pritchard:

    DNF (1eebbb)

  35. I’ll cry a little for your dad too, Red. It’s not out of my way.

    Hope he gets well.

    Not a shoo-in for the presidency, but considered a leading candidate for the Democratic nomination and nobody attempted to say anything more. They didn’t project beyond that – they didn’t even say he was a shoo-in for the nomination. He played a little Hamlet in 1992.

    And yes, similiar to Barack Obama, because he also delivered a memorable speech at the Democratic – in 1984 – Obama’s speech was in 2004.

    There was a parody about Mario Cuomo to the tune of Rigoletto:

    There is the presidency
    Some people love it,
    This son of Italy,
    rises above it.

    There was always a suspicion that there was something for which he could be attacked , fairly or unfairly, that most people didn’t know.

    His father-in-law was very honest. His company made fixtures for stores.

    When Mr Burns was 95 he was asked if he still smoked cigars. Yep, three a day.

    He said he would live to 100. He had to. he was booked.

    He did live to 100, but I think he had to cancel his appearance.

    Sammy Finkelman (6ee5be)

  40. i’m just remembering the media orgasm after he gave a speech on the tv which kinda mirrored the orgasm they had for food stamp

    happyfeet (831175)

  41. 42. Shouldn’t that be: “…the media orgasm after food stamp gave a speech on the tv which kinda mirrored the orgasm they had for his speech”

    Which came first?

    Sammy Finkelman (6ee5be)

  42. During the night, I heard on WINS that the cause of death was not announced – but he was known (recently) to be suffering from some sort of heart disease.

    Sammy Finkelman (6ee5be)

  43. His 98th was his last at Caesar’s, he had to cancel 99 and 100, Sammy.

    mg (31009b)

  44. it depends on which way the mirror is facing i think Mr. Sammy

    happyfeet (831175)

  45. I only heard hat George Burns had cancelled his 100th borthday appearance. I didn’t know he had already cancelled his 99th birthday appearance.

    Jack Benny was originally supposed to play a part that George Burns did in a 1970’s movie/

    Sammy Finkelman (6ee5be)

  46. == it depends on which way the mirror is facing i think Mr. Sammy ==

    What depends?

  47. Wife surprised me this morning with a request to venture out and grab some breakfast, which was unusual in so far as she rarely feels like eating before lunch. I quickly agreed and went out to warm the Abarth up. She came outside and said, “oh no… I want to take the car with heated seats”… to which I responded “oh, yes!” and she somewhat dejectedly climbed in and had a scary ride to teh coffee shop. #WINNING!!!!

  48. I truly hope you did not sew the seeds of feminazism in your loving wife today when you pulled the patriarchy card on her, colonel.

  49. Remains to be seen, stay tuned, elissa!
