Next, on My13, after the Playgirl naked chimpanzee photo shoot, an episode of M*A*S*H entitled "The Most Unforgettable Characters."It's on in 4 minutes and even though I own that huge box set with all the episodes, I still watch.

One of my favorite exchanges of that episode:"What a provocative anecdote!" - Radar"You watch your mouth." - Klinger


Since you mentioned Lulu, I'll use that as an excuse to mention Hulu.What is Hulu? It is the name of the NBC Universal-News Corp. Web video joint venture to rival YouTube.According to Broadcasting:In a message on hulu.com, CEO Jason Kilar says the name doesn't have any significant meaning; it is simply "short, easy to spell, easy to pronounce, and rhymes with itself."Can there be any better recommendation for a name than that it rhymes with itself?


Hap Birth Annie! 21! Woo hoo!When I was twenty one I played piano and sang at a place called Simply Blues. In the Sunset tower. Doesn't anybody remember Simply Blues? Oh.God that was a long time ago.Mark B.


I turned 21 in prison doing life without parole.

Well, I'm sure Mama tried..."Mama said there'd be days like this, there'd be days like this, Mama said."Just seemed right.


Assassin Ballerinas? Pffft, been done before, long ago. Back in the thirties here in England Caryl Brahms and SJ Simon wrote the first in their series of comedy murder mysteries set in a travelling ballet company always on the verge of bankruptcy. All loosely mocking Diaghilev, of course. The books still make a fun read today if you can find them.

Ken, RE: Katy Couric’s 10-day deployment in Iraq.Do you realize that today (Sept. 4) is exactly one year to the day that you blogged about Katie letting it slip that, as a single mom with small children, she would not be going to dangerous world hotspots?So I guess things really MUST BE turning around in Tikrit? Either that or things must NOT be turning around at CBS. I have no problem with Katie either, but do you remember when, a year ago she asked all the viewers to send in sign-off suggestion she could select from. And then they tossed ‘em all and let her pretend to say whatever the last thing is that comes into her head.It was a slow week, I sent in a total of 171 signoffs, all snarky, a hundred of which were ostensibly suggested by celebrities of one sort or another. Among those rejected: Dan Rather “Courige,” Barbara Walters, “Couwage,” Jillian Barberie, “Cleavage,” Andy Rooney, “Dotage,” Ted Kazynski, “Postage, Clint Eastwood, “Do ya feel perky, punk?” Sumner Redstone, “Viacom dios,” “Daniel Shorr, “Today-to-Murrow, WTF?” Morley Safer, “You complete me Morley Safer,” Bob Schieffer, “Friggin’ set still smells like Cronkite,” CBS TV Entertainment president Nancy Tellem, “And now, they’ve asked me to close with this interpretive dance,” former Today Show producer and NBC honcho Jeff Zucker, “Pull my finger,” CBS president Les Moonves, “So long zucker.”What would you have suggested?
