Classic TV Show Open Of The Day

The original, longer open of "The Courtship Of Eddie's Father" starring Bill Bixby. Most of the beach dialogue was cut from the later open to shorten it.

I watched this show but always thought it was a little sad... just like "Family Affair," another show with missing parents. Every kid's nightmare.


News Story Of The Day: Man Caught Masturbating Outside Wal-Mart

I guess some people get really excited about low prices.

Wow. That joke sucked. So I direct you to the ironic name of the reporter for a laugh.

Many thanks to Karen for the link.

Man caught masturbating outside new Wal-Mart

Oswego County, NY - Not everyone who attended Wal-Mart Supercenter's grand opening this weekend was there to shop.

Several people called the Oswego County 911 Center sometime after 8 p.m. Sunday after seeing a man masturbating in a pickup truck in the parking lot of the new Wal-Mart on state Route 3 in Granby, state police said. When troopers arrived, they found John D. Gates masturbating in the passenger's seat of his 1991 Ford Ranger pick-up truck.

"Arriving patrols found Gates sitting in the passenger seat of his vehicle while he was still attempting to complete the act," state police said in an e-mail. "Gates was in plain view of customers that were leaving the store."

Gates, of 3296 Main St., Mexico, was arrested on the following charges: Public lewdness, criminal possession of a controlled substance (possessing hydrocodone tablets without a prescription) and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Here's a photo of the little chicken-choker...

Vid Of The Day: Bulgarian Idol, Part 2

First there was "Ken Lee." And now this. Do you need any more proof that Bulgarian Idol is superior to American Idol? You might think this is K-Fed, but it's not. This guy blows K-Fed away. Sha'mo!
