Stay with Me Here

Precocious Daughter and I are watching "Top Gear." She's completely obsessed with this show, and she's gotten me into it, as well.

Crack with fast cars and British accents.
So we're watching an old episode of "Top Gear," and Patrick Stewart is guesting. And he's talking about being in a production of The Master Builder, by Henrik Ibsen.

A hell of a writer, but sadly couldn't grow a mustache.
The thing is, as Sir Patrick is talking about Henrik Ibsen, I start thinking how much it sounds as if he's saying Henry Gibson.

Noted poet and Illinois Nazi.
And then, since I'm now thinking about "Laugh-In," of course, it occurs to me that Henrik Ibsen looks quite a bit like Arte Johnson.

Verrrrry interesting.

And wouldn't you know it? Today is Arte Johnson's birthday!

And still looks like Ibsen. But not Gibson.
Spooky, huh?


Well, I thought it was cool.

Happy Birthday, Arte Johnson!

  1. I love that show. I'm not big on cars, but the guys absolutely crack me up! I love their challenges. I also love how freakishly observant you are. I never would have put all of that together.


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.
