Looks like rain again today but one advantage to living in an apartment building, I can get in my 10K steps just by walking back and forth to the garage a couple of times! There is a gym in the building but as far as I’ve seen, only beautiful skinny people use it. That lets me out. I could walk to Wegman’s, but that might defeat the purpose of the walk if I come home with something yummy to eat.
Here he is hosting Classic Concentration, an episode I happened to catch yesterday while channel surfing. The internet says Trebek hosted the game show between 1987-1991.
Oh how times have changed. In the initial interview with contestant Debra, Alex asked her if she was married. She said yes, to a minister. Alex then asked if they had children, and Debra said Not yet. But where it gets classic, Alex THEN asked “Are you trying to have children?”
Debra demurely responded, Not Yet. I thought the interaction was cute, harmless, and not remotely sexist. I mean, it was such a different time, Debra introduced herself as a housewife, a term I’m happy to use but I don’t know any young woman today who uses it. Do you? Don’t get me started on the whole stay at home mom moniker. No.
ANYWAY, also during this episode, in solving one of the rebus picture puzzles, the boxes opened to the top half of a female wearing a bikini swimsuit top. Alex paused and said “I think I dated her”. It was quite funny, harmless, and he got a laugh from the audience. I can’t imagine any such Host Humor would fly today. Sadly. Women have forgotten how to laugh.
The second This, I start to get serious. Monday night Tucker Carlson’s opening monologue was a barn burner, all about the Rigged Election. For the life of me I can not find a YT version of the monologue to post. even though Fox News has its own Tucker Carlson YT page. This segment is not on it. Portions of it were posted on Instagram feeds but not in a format that drops into WordPress.
If any of you finds a link or can post a link, please do. Update: I just found this tweet from The Columbia Bugle. See if the link works for you. I don’t do Twitter and I could watch it.
I was glued. Do I think the election was rigged? Absolutely! But I also have the Lego Capitol Building set, yes I do, that I put together with one of my (adult) children, and I fly an American Flag. Uh oh. Will anything come of any election audit? I don’t think so. I read that Pennsylvania is now thinking of an audit. If Arizona’s took so long and we don’t know the results yet, Pennsylvania’s will take nigh onto a couple of years, if it even happens, which I doubt.
The last entry of my This and That I’ll call a That, for THAT woman, Kamala Harris, who thinks Rural Americans live in caves, eat raw meat from a carcass they killed with their bare hands, and can’t find any way to photocopy their ID if need be.
Of course, leave it to the internet to make fun of Harris’s comment. Classic!
Happy Sunday. Thanks for playing This and That.
