let's call it a (carnivnal) night

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who linked to Four Color Hell. I'd say our first full day in business was quite successful.

If you haven't read through the comments on this post, I suggest you do. I realize now that my list of favorite sitcom episodes cannot be complete without the WKRP flying turkey episode.

And should you need a whole lot of reading material tonight, the Carnival of the Vanities is alive and kickin at Single Southern Guy, who did a beautiful job of gathering the stories this week.

Oh, and thanks to Solly, I found a new way to say "Hey, it's 11:00, I'm going to watch Adult Swim!"

I was never allowed to read comics by my parents. So I never got into the habit, which made it difficult for me to follow the story in them when I got older and tried. My parents also would not let us eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. My cousins ate them for breakfast; my parents were horrified. They said that children who eat pb and j sandwiches would never amount to anything in life! My cousin Cary went on to become a cardiologist!!

I think that many, if not all, parents have these little quirks which may embarass us when we are youngsters, but eventually we discover that other parents have some weird ideas of their own.

Yay! You've come around to the flying turkey episode!

Would someone be so kind as to explain to me (or just point me to a link -- we learned how to read last year in the south) , what this "carnival of vanities" business is? It looks need, but I don't follow.

"As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."

I didn't love "WKRP" just because I was a disc jockey then, although that helped.

I loved it because of lines like that.

And still do.
