As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    i loved that show.

    And Finally . . . The “Who Would You Do” Question

    I propose that “Jennifer or Bailey?” is a much more telling test than the standard “Ginger or Mary Ann?” question. Mary Ann may have been a farm girl, but she was a bad farm girl. (Look how tight those damn gingham dresses are on her.) Six months in LA, and she’d be Ginger. Bailey, however, could never be Jennifer. Only trust those who answer “Bailey” to the above question.

    (Of course, we’ll pass over the “Betty vs. Veronica” question. I always figured Archie was getting some from both of them.)

    I have always been a Bailey guy.

    “The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement…”

    “Um, … what’s it like to ride in a helicopter?”

    Anyone who doubts the genius of either Howard Hessman or Richard Sanders need only see the bit where Les is reading out the call letters and Johnny is in the booth using hand gestures to coax them out of him.

    And, of course, you’re all correct: the answer is Bailey. Not even so much because Jan Smithers is hot (though she is), but because there is something really squirrelly and “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” and gross about Loni Anderson, even back then in her pre-Burt Reynolds days.

    Also: How is it that every shitty little cable show can muster up the ducats to pay for the latest hits to be played wistfully over its closing credits, but it’s not financially feasible to release WKRP DVDs with the original music?

    I am sorry. I … I … obviously have spent far too much time thinking about all of this.

    who LOOVVES to explode.”
    And then you did.

    Ever seen Married With Children on DVD? Specifically, the opening credits? Very unsettling.
