Fake Language Song

Although the lyrics sound like a variety of languages, it's all gibberish.

YouTube identifies the performer as Arihiro Fujimura.

Attempting to explain the unexplainable, visit their Wikipedia entry.

Early Slapstick and Boxing Cats

The more of these early Edison clips I see, the more convinced I become that the great inventor was a prankster nerd.

No Smoking in Bismarck, North Dakota

And they mean it, too. Ron White, the popular comedian from the Blue Collar Comedy tour and various Comedy Central specials, is a whiskey-drinking, cigar-smoking redneck, and proud of it. He's included those two fundamental elements in all of his shows. But apparently grumpy people in North Dakota won't stand for that kind of blatant disregard for the law. This is one of those times where you wonder just how uptight Americans have become since Janet Jackson flashed a tit on prime time.

Phyliss Diller

Recently some readers objected to my characterization of 1960's-era Phyllis Diller as "unfunny."

Decide for yourselves.

She doesn't appear in the Liberace clip until the 3-minute mark.

Follies of the Mad Men #41

[From Playboy magazine for June 1974.]

"Let's take a screeching unfunny harridan, dress her in Colonial drag, then simulate a hideous war wound using our product as a makeshift sling. Then, let's run the ad in a magazine filled with beautiful naked women for contrast."
