Thanks, I wish I could accept the award but the truth is.... I heard all those jokes years ago on the boob-tube!


I used to repair boob-tubes, but my business went down the tubes!

I remember taking apart a TV once that I forgot to unplug.... I was shocked to discover what really makes them work!

I actually remember the first show I saw in color, it was a real last minute cliffhanger of a football game.... I was electrified!

The overall quality of TV programming has definitely declined though.... much of it is simply re-volt-ing!

A guy got his big toe blown off taking a shortcut accross his new neighbors property. They seemed friendly enough when they moved in... he really didn't think they'd mined at all!

The guy who raised the "Stars and Stripes" each morning at the Pentagon had to be replaced.... his enthusiasm for the job was flagging!

A fight broke out after a perfectly fair race between two spotted leopards.... the winner was accused of being a cheetah!

The accusing leopard ultimately relented though after reviewing the video several times.... seeing that had really given him paws!
