A joke prefaced with a passing thought

There are three types of mistakes; Those you learn from, those you suffer from, and those you don't survive.

That was when late-night talk shows were actually funny and entertaining.
High taxes, redistribution of wealth, open borders, the erasure of gender, the primacy of skin color, the dumbing-down of education across the board: these are the policies the Democrats promote.

That was good! Thanks

That's one of the best jokes ever, and nobody could tell it like Hackett.
"You get much farther with a kind word and a gun than with a kind word alone."
That was great, thanks for posting it
Buddy Hackett, along Jonathan Winters were always two of my favorites.
Carson was the best at late night. He had a cross section of guests on his show including Politicians, but he himself never revealed his Political leanings and once said if you show your politics you'll loose half your audience.

I actually remember that joke - fantastic.

Thanks for posting this, loved it!
That cracked me up. Few comedians could tell a story better than Hackett. Bob Newhart was another one.

I miss the real comedians. The ones who could really make you laugh, and didn't have to get foulmouthed, racist or sexist to do it.
I have my own style of humor. I call it Snarkasm.

Hackett was funny but the Hackett you saw on TV and the Hackett you saw in a club were two different people. He was known to be one of the bluest of the blue.
|Leave the gun. |
Take the cannoli.
Oh yeah! Like Redd Foxx. Not the sweet old man with the junk yard. Funny guys without the politics. None of the comedians of today make me laugh like that generation.
Hackett, by the way was a gun guy. Both he and Mel Torme had extensive collections of Colt Single Actions. Torme, at one time, bought and later sold, the famous Colt Sears gun.

I think a network, any network, could make a ton of money by replaying episodes of Johnny Carson at 2230 every weeknight to compete with the garbage that's out there now.
I know I'd watch.
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy." Winston Churchill
That was excellent. that was good stuff from all those comics of that generation.

My Dad watched Johnny Carson faithfully every night . I started watching with him and learned to appreciate all of the old comedians .
Our cable company, Cox, shows Johnny Carson re-runs from the eighties, every weeknight at 11:30. Beats the hell out of those three newbies.
