Scanning the television channels and happening on to a WWF wrestling match. I have to stop for a minute and laugh. It blows my mind that this has been going on since the !970's and people think it's real. How do these wrestlers face people in every day life. I'm embarrassed for them just watching that fake crap. I understand it's for the kids but there is a huge adult following. Check out the audience some time. WWF 1993 Undertaker Vs Razor Ramon - YouTube To me this is hilarious.
15" zucchini's at the Coachella Valley music festival make me giggle. I'd bust a gut laughing at one of those 15 inchers at a Renaissance Pleasure Faire too, in the hands of some bawdy wenches. No telling where it would end up.

^ Hey, I did the best I could I had a hangover that day
Also posted in the bates motel thread, this cracks me up every ti>
Bob I find that to be pretty damn funny also. I guess it's the fact that we know it's going to happen. But I bet I cracked up the first time I saw it as well. But it's been so long I couldn't recall. Everything in this thread so far I find to be pretty funny. Great thread!
I think it was on TV before 63 ... no list of wrestlers can be complete without Dick the Bruiser and Bobo Brazil and like you said 100s of others. IMO the fun went away when TBS started pushing it in the late 70's and it got to be a lot like reality TV is today.
I loved that stuff when I was a kid. We knew it was mostly fake, but do you think it'd be fun to have this guy trying to tie you in knots?
Watch "The Wrestler", there's a lot of truth in it. It's scripted, and it still hurts like hell. Plus, Marisa Tomei.
My uncle took me one time to the Cow Palace in SF. about 1973-4 . was the best time ever.
I don't let my son have any of this sexual rapist, womanizing, foul mouthed bull crap they have now. There's not any of them now I want him to have respect for.
No action figures, no video games. no TV shows.
Last Friday AM I was + Rep'd many times after continuing flow with aka AZMTNS Girl Friday - only I chose the three-breasted woman from Total Recall.
I try to spend ultra-abbreviated time on the 'net, really had no idea what made me think of Total Recall like that. I later went on to stand-behind FOX's Family Guy in this thread - still w/o a tie-in to being motivated in a good or bad way to do just that.
So - got around to watching my missed TV - yep Family Guy. Not only did fellow Nutmegger Seth MacFarlane go and have a show titled 'Total Recall' but also went ahead and changed the long standing intro to the show, AND pulled hilarious bits in the shows like I noted as having been classic Family Guy.
That kind of subliminal-effect on my own channeling a way to release - I was finding that funny for the better part of Today. And I don't know why!!
