• kesmarn : Later, Q~Money!

  • Questinia : Q~*Money OUT!

  • Questinia : I see you guys!

  • kesmarn : Khirad! Glad to hear your flight went well. Everyone is saying that the security thing is not as bad as the media flap made it out to be. It’s good to hear that you didn’t have any problems. Now you can take off the armor-all underwear and relax a bit.

  • Khirad : Being a a glutton for abuse I was wearing my Arizona t-shirt into Portland, where the Ducks fans are none too humble. :lol: Glad to see I started something tonight. Actually, the security was the smoothest I’ve ever had. Friendliest, too.

  • AdLib : Night Bito, will do (one of my joys!). Sleep well, my friend!

  • bitohistory : Night, AdLib. Give the kid an extra hug, guy.

  • bitohistory : Looks like time to close up shop. Thanks to everyone for yor larning and skooling me. Peace

  • AdLib : Night Patsy! Sleep well!

  • bitohistory : Night, Patsy, Go Michigan or ohio!

  • PatsyT : I will have to say goodnight also… Great to chat with all Have a wonderful evening Bito, AdLib and Kes

  • bitohistory : Good night Ms. k’es, always a candle lit for you.

  • PatsyT : Good Night Kes…. I won’t mind a email …all for a good cause

  • kesmarn : I can feel myself turning into a pumpkin as the clock strikes one…’fraid I may have to say g’nite, kids. Wish I could leave you with a joke one of my patients told me tonight, but it’s a little too naughty for the internets…mayb e in email…? Good night!

  • bitohistory : AdLib did put up Remapping Debates on the Blogroll. They publish every Tuesday. I like that site!

  • PatsyT : Thanks Bito… I will dig into that in the morning

  • bitohistory : Patsy, It is long, but is in segments. «link»

  • kesmarn : I adore the silent comedians…so amazingly creative! Love Chaplin. Keaton and Stan Laurel are great favorites. (Dick Van Dyke was in that tradition.) Like many women, though, I’m not really a Stooges fan. Jerry Lewis captured some of that silent film magic on occasion, too.

  • PatsyT : Cool I am looking forward to it.

  • AdLib : Bito – Looking forward to the article, I think it will intrigue and enlighten.

  • kesmarn : Patsy, if you get a chance, there’s a link to an interview with a Harvard trained historian named James Loewen (I think in O/T). It’s amazing.

  • AdLib : Comedy today derives from Vaudeville. All the original comedians of film and stage came from there. Chaplin, Keaton, WC Fields, Marx Brothers, Laurel and Hardy, Three Stooges, etc. They influenced a huge amount of comedy and comedians.

  • kesmarn : Really…I did next to nothing! Just a couple paragraphs! b’ito found the original interview!

  • PatsyT : You guys have me very curious

  • bitohistory : My co-poster is k’es.

  • AdLib : I think there’s a lot to discuss and a lot of light bulbs to go off in people’s heads to consider the historical legacy.

  • kesmarn : Ooops. Sorry, b’ito…got carried away with bacon there. Do you think Monday would be okay?

  • AdLib : Bito, would be great if you posted the Loewen interview at the beginning of the week!

  • bitohistory : k’es, AdLib, I asked about if we should do the Neo-Confed post?

  • kesmarn : So, “popcorn and pickled bacon” would have been the ultimate in Vaudeville funniness…?

  • AdLib : Club HamWitch.

  • kesmarn : That’s downright un-‘Merican, b’ito! You must be a commie borscht eater!

  • PatsyT : Ham Club for Bloggers

  • AdLib : It’s an old Vaudevillian principle, words like “pickle” and “kumquat” would be deemed funny because of the “k” sound. As were words that started with “p” that could be popped.

  • bitohistory : I hate to taste Bacon for breakfast, totally

  • kesmarn : Clams are pretty funny, too. Must be that hard “c” again.

  • PatsyT : What a Ham…

  • kesmarn : b’ito, was that one Freudian? Are you indulging in a little “inhaled inspiration” tonight?

  • AdLib : IOW, please buy my book, “How to be Funny using Pork Products.”

  • AdLib : Is there a sillier looking food than bacon? And eating fat is so resonant.

  • kesmarn : You’re right. Just the word “bacon”–it’s funny.

  • AdLib : Bacon is funny. It is a classic funny word, the hard “c” sound is part of the formula. And, bacon is the great equalizer, none can resist it!

  • PatsyT : All my life I knew that bacon was so funny until I started reading the Planet!

  • bitohistory : post not pot

  • kesmarn : Yeah, Patsy. I know we’ve been doing the bacon thing for while, but I don’t remember…ahhh, while I was typing AdLib took credit!

  • bitohistory : K’es, Adlib, Should/whenshoul d we pot that Loewen interview?

  • AdLib : I proudly take credit for starting bacon jokes. Whether I started them or not.

  • PatsyT : and Why?

  • kesmarn : How did we all ever get started on the bacon jokes?

  • kesmarn : Well, actually more than 1, but when I get tired my exclamation points turn into 1’s… maybe time to go to bed?

  • AdLib : I AM a turkey burrito.

  • kesmarn : Turkey burritos1
