I don’t know if you read all of the comments on this blog, but they are often better than the posts. My readers are a funny lot.
Yesterday, Charlie from Read Between The Minds left a You Tube clip for me to watch.
I’ve never heard of Art Linkletter, who had a show called Kids Say The Darndest Things. Spud, however, was on a British version called Michael Barrymore’s Kids Say The Funniest Things. Sadly, there’s no tape of it: the show was recorded in February, along with a whole series, but never shown because there was a terrible scandal that summer, when a man died at Barrymore’s home. The scandal ended Barrymore’s career.
The clip Charlie left is from 1959. I cried with laughter.
I’ll tell you my two favourite quotes after the video, because I don’t want to spoil it for you.
I loved the little girl who said that ‘Adam and Eve had a whole mess o’ babies,’ because she’s just the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
And I love the logic of the little boy who told us that God’s punishment on Eve for causing all the trouble was to make her ‘a housewife.’ Out of the mouths of babes…
Thanks for a huge laugh, Charlie.
