Humor Is Ageless. This Humor Is Old. But Still, Ageless.

OK, nostalgia time.

I'll be very interested to see if anyone recognizes/remembers this. Those of you under 40 are definitely excused.

I have very specific memories of watching this when it originally aired, and thinking it was about the funniest thing I had ever seen. OK, I was, like, seven or something, but still. I never forgot it.

Thank the gods for YouTube.

Tonight I showed this clip to Precocious Daughter, and she thought it was amazing. Which I knew she would, because she's inherited much of my sense of humor. She's prettier than me, in better shape than me, more sociable than me, but we share a sense of humor, and that's more than good enough for me.

Anyway, I got a big kick out of telling her that the guys in tuxedos are Kate Hudson's dad and her uncles. And they had a variety show in the '70s. I stopped short of telling her about the Krofft Super Show and Electra Woman and Dyna Girl. Because culture should be absorbed in reasonable doses for maximum effect, I feel.

So. I want to know if any of you mature Drunkards remember the Hudson Brothers, their variety show, and Rod Hull and Emu.

If you don't, you will in just a few minutes.

I dare you not to laugh.

It's been a good Friday evening here. I hope yours has been, as well.

  1. Bill, Mark and Brett! Dig the hair! And I definitely remember the Emu. And Ken Berry! Now I miss Carol Burnett... Good times.


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
