More Funny Stuff

I'm happy to see that mistakes are made by someone besides me.

This is from a TV Guide probably in the 1980's, but can't say for sure:

This is about as large as I can make it. If you look at "Thriller" on the bottom row, there is a picture of  Jonathan Winters, but the caption reads "That lovable, sinister, master of horror, Boris Karloff in some of TV's eeriest hours." (Well, that could fit Jonathan Winters at times.)

Next to that is a picture of Boris Karloff (with a candle up his nostril, it looks like), but it reads "Wacky World of Jonathan Winters" and "Comedy variety with the incomparable wit and wonder of Jonathan Winters and special guest stars."

Next is one from the Phoenix Gazette of 9/14/87, with the headline "Woman raped by man after accepting car ride".

Excerpt from article:  "The man then released her and drove away. He is described as 27-30 years old, 6 feet tall, 250-300 pounds with blue hair and brown eyes. He was driving a brown late 1970s van."

Comment: This suspect should be fairly easy to spot, being so large with BLUE hair.

From the Arizona Republic 7/27/97, headline: "Mars rover's 'find rock' program works"

Excerpt: "On Saturday, the Sojourner rover used its alpha proton X-ray spectrometer to study the chemical composition of the rock, named for a fluffy desert [Souffle], a day after guiding itself 10 feet to reach it."

Comment: Fluffy? desert? The desert around here doesn't look "fluffy" to me, but I guess it depends on how you look at it. I think souffle is a dessert.

More next Thursday.


  1. I remember some of those shows, they may be from the 70s. Funny stuff. You are correct 300 lbs and blue hair should be easy to find.

  2. Fluffy goes better with bunny than with desert. I like the pic. Cool to see Star Trek there.

    1. It does, Charles. Thanks for the comment.

  3. The way I make souffle (the put in oven and get distracted method) it can be quite desert like.
