Kugelmass, a professor of humanities at City College, was unhappily married for the second time. Daphne Kugelmass was an oaf. He also had two dull sons by his first wife, Flo, and was up to his neck in alimony and child support.

"Did I know it would turn out so badly?" Kugelmass whined to his analyst one day. "Daphne had promise. Who suspected she'd let herself go and swell up like a beach ball? Plus she had a few bucks, which is not in itself a healthy reason to marry a person, but it doesn't hurt, with the kind of operating nut I have. You see my point?"

Kugelmass was bald and as hairy as a bear, but he had soul…. (From ”O Mundo De Claudia”)

Groucho Marx’s Letter to Warner Brothers. While preparing to film “A Night in Casablanca”, the Marx brothers received a letter from Warner Bros. threatening legal action if they did not change the film’s title. Warner Bros. deemed the film’s title too similar to their own Casablanca, released almost five years earlier in 1942, with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. In response Groucho Marx dispatched the following letter to the studio’s legal department

You can’t stop buying useless crap, though you’re drowning in a deepening pool of debt. You think you’re an activist because you bitch all day on the internet, but you reelect the same gangsters at a 99% rate. You consider yourself informed because you waste a significant portion of your life watching the same three news stories cycle over and over again on your gargantuan, aerodynamic television set while you eat processed food…"

Who is Red Peters and what does he do?

Murray_red_peters Red Peters is back. Many musicologists believe that if Red Peters had stuck with just one musical style, he'd have been a power player years ago. Instead, he jumped from art-rock/new-wave ("Give Youself A Handy, You've Earned It") to a brief Punk stint with the Swollen Members. He also sang on a record for a capella group, singing "You Promised the Moon (But I Preferred Uranus)", and recorded the tear jerking true "Ballad of a Dog Named Stains" for country / folksters Smelly Water during his Nashville period. Check out this video clip of Red's TV Commercial for "Ol' Blue Balls Is Back!" Why is he not as famous as George Carlin?

The next big star on “Saturday Night Live” is going to be “Bad Dog” Fred Armisen. And who is the voice behind SNL announcements? The official bio of Don Prado says that he was born in feb. 22, 1918. That makes him 86 years old. Doesn’t sound like 86.
