Why are you reporting this puzzle?

I know, I know.... this is a day late, but I was celebrating Bullwinkle's Birthday with Natasha, Boris, Snidley Whiplash, Mr.Peabody, Sherman and the rest of my friends. We were doing shots of chocolate milk and reminiscing about the "good ole days"... Metal Munching Mice, herding snakes, Upsidasium, The Three Mooseketeers, Wossamotta U and other remarkable achievements. Needless to say I passed out early while the party raged on....

Born September 24, 1870 - Georges Claude, French physicist that invented the neon light (1910). Thanks to Georges Claude's flashing neon "OPEN" sign, drunks everywhere would know if their favorite bar was still open... or if they should throw a rock through the bar's front window

September 24, 1952 - The first Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise opens, featuring the recipe of 11 secret herbs and spices created by Colonel Sanders. By 1963 there were 600 KFC restaurants making it the largest fast food chain in the U.S.. By early 1964 various criminal gangs, including MS-chicken, Hell's Chickens and the Mexican Chicken Cartel had put a bounty on Colonel Sanders head... a meatless McChicken sandwich to the first to bring Colonel Sanders in... baked or fried

September 24, 1929 - "First Blind Airplane Flight". Jimmy Doolittle takes off and lands an airplane using only instruments. The Army Air Corp insists there with no casualties, but it was later revealed that Jimmy Doolittle broke his white cane and blacked-out eye glasses during the landing

September 24, 1852 - First Flight of a Dirigible. Henri Giffard of Paris flies his hydrogen-filled 3-horsepower steam-powered craft. Henri Giffard flew his dirigible solo, with Daisy, his favorite cow in the cargo hold in case the dirigible suffered a leak. Daisy's flatulence would be used to keep his "lighter than air" craft aloft.

Born September 24, 1883 - Franklin Clarence Mars - Founder of Mars, Inc., maker of the Milky Way (1923) and Snickers Bar (1930). Franklin Clarence Mars was also an inspiration to the creation of Weight Watchers, the makers of Spandex, Acne medications, LA Fitness gyms and the makers of liposuction devices

And of course the reason for this pointless piece of trivia, September 24, 1961 Bullwinkle got his own show when NBC debuts The Bullwinkle Show. At 58 years old yer lookin' good big fella... but your antlers are starting to droop....

All in all, September 24 has been a good day to mankind. Only good things have happened on September 24...... if you can manage to ignore that in 1672 the Prime Minister of Holland and his brother were lynched by an angry mob who proceeded to eat their body parts, including their roasted livers. I'll have to look up when Barbeque sauce was invented...

John, I think a bad memory is not all bad. I get to read books the second time, and enjoy them just as much, because I've forgotten the story I enjoyed the first time. I think ALL your writings are humorous and funny, and very enjoyable, and may you go back and enjoy them again and again!!

ParsonWayne

crl, do words leave you via your mouth?

rswestley

Carol, my horn is currently in the shop for repairs, but if I had it, I would be tooting. I write this "stuff" and then forget. This puzzle was posted over a month ago and I didn't remember this collection of historical facts... the odd part is that I find my old writings to be humorous, bordering on funny. A bad memory may be the best part of getting old. As you can tell, I am easily amused :-)

clrtexas

Words leave me.....

rswestley

Ken, if you have never tasted raw Spam, you are obviously from the future.... A future lacking in Spam and all of it's greasy goodness. A future filled with constipated brethren. A Spamless future where you know at 3:00AM you will be grunting in the bathroom with little success. Have a great day Ken, and I hope you enjoy your daily workout in the bathroom...

klocowolf

John you left out the tastiest one of all Raw Spam. At least that's what I've been told.

jals

Thanks nanab!

rswestley

dustydog, please feel free to stop in anytime. The nonsense is flown in fresh daily and never frozen and we have daily specials...
Sunday - baked Spam
Monday - fried Spam
Tuesday - boiled Spam
Wednesday - grilled Spam
Thursday - poached Spam
Friday - roast Spam
Saturday - sautéed Spam
And dustydog? Can I call you "DD"? I always wanted to know someone that was a "DD" :-)

@dustydog

dustydog

Insanity! (What a wonderful thing that is!) I haven't laughed this hard in a very l-o-n-g time. Thanks to all of you!
Dusty : )

nanab

I second that jals.

jals

It's a great idea John, and they should charge to see them, take that money to build tiny houses for the people (with bathrooms) and feed them.

Bubble

Another brilliant idea, John, except ………… well tourists (if they still visit LA) might not like being harassed and importuned by Fred, Barney and various flesh dripping dead.

I myself will be visiting LA for the first time in October so any hints about who to avoid or street names to steer clear of, will be greatly appreciated, and especially the areas you've already mentioned ! (❀ᴗ❀)

rswestley

Thanks for signing me up for Dragon's Den and Shark Tank Bub. But I'm wondering... what's in it for me? If I manage to slay Zurvan, Vilia Dark Force and the Great Behemoth, do I get to keep the miscellaneous body parts? Should I buy a bigger crock pot?

Bub, I am a man of many hidden talents. Yes, I create decorative trinkets from hamster dung and jewelry from leftover Spam, but I am also a problem solver. As every one is well aware, San Francisco and Las Angeles has about 70,000 homeless people living on the sidewalks, in the back of John Travolta's Lamborghini and in various restaurants disguised as figures from Madam Tussaud's wax museum (the Willy Nelson figure looks soooooo real!) My plan is relatively inexpensive and will be a boon to the tourist industry for both cities. Take all of the homeless people and..... put them all in COSTUMES! Why didn't someone think of this sooner? One street could have all Flintstone characters, another street could be Batman characters, another Return of the Living Dead characters and so on. All the tourists would be so amused, they would not notice the ever growing piles of human excrement, the syringes on the sidewalks or the smell of rotting corpses. And street vendors could have kiosks selling underarm deodorants, air fresheners and snack foods like last weeks discarded Chef's salad, complete with crispy rat droppings..... another problem solved by TIM the Wonder Man....

jals

ha ha John. He's speaking your language? Maybe not. It reminds me of what my friend from Alabama has talked about from the locals down there.

rswestley

Well that explains it! I could never get my sucker tube to bounce around all night so I would wrestle spinach macramés blue sunset cereal bowls and whole wheat Amityville napkins and Jerry Garcia ties. Thanks Ken! You are a real life salad!

jals

LOL Ken. I did ask.
Oh my goodness, you can tell a pretty tale.

klocowolf

Judy - you asked.
There was the smallest of crumbs tat might have remained from when Mouse and Squirrel sampled the cake. This was taken by Hairless Joe and Lonesome Polecat for a new batch of Kickapoo Joy Juice.
Tat being said, this is the extra extra extra extra extra secrete ingredient for squirrels speed and KJJ. Means there will a major party goin on. Whar any skitter even looking toward tat party will have his sucker tube curl so tight they will just bounce around all night. Ebin Mammy Yokum's pipe has begun to twirl, and Popeye's is now's tooting and spin-in so mach they's be tryin to hold to each other for the famously, famously, famously rare-is ob de rarest pipe lock dance.
Isss the Kpoo jo Ju redddady yet, sture smells lick is wark-it pattytim.

Bubble

John I'm signing you up for Dragon's Den and Shark Tank, in that order. With all your wonderful inventions/designs and working gadgets, you should get a huge investment from the rich and famous panels.

Then you can open your own 'Gadget For very Imaginable and Unimaginable Occasion' store. Judy and I will be your loyal assistants, with Royalties of course and first pick of the Shares when you go Public. (❀ᴗ❀)

jals

Ah John. Your humor is a much needed diversion this morning. I like the idea of putting the candy together in the fridge. Please let me know if it works. Also the steak was a great idea. I'm sure no one fought you for it.
We keep our marbles in a box and a jar here. It's harder for them to escape.

How are all the furry creatures this morning? What's the head count?

rswestley

Bub, I hope you learned from your mistake. When I first started seeing my therapist I told her how I had purchased a swarm of mosquitoes from the pet store, took them home and trained them to be "guard" mosquitoes. If anyone came to my front door I would send out my merry band of mosquitoes to greet them. I think that was about the time my sociophobia took a turn for the worst and I began slipping into invisibilitiness..... hmmm....where was I going with this? Oh yes, my therapist and the missing marbles. So in the middle of my first session with Nurse Ratched, she screeched "have you lost your marbles?" and I replied I didn't think so. I usually keep a close eye on my marbles and I didn't recall any marbles scurrying away to freedom. It was then I decided I would carry a cordless Dyson V7 Dust Buster in my back pocket at all times. I hope you are paying heed to this story because if you had been carrying a Dyson V7 Dust Buster in your back pocket, you could have quickly sucked up all of the wayward skittles before the clerk returned with a broom.

My piece of fudge? It's alive and doing well. I put it into the refrigerator with a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in hopes they will mate and I will have a litter of cute little fudge peanut butter drops. That would be my contribution to our imploding ecology. A sustainable supply of fudge peanut butter drops. (I put them in the refrigerator in case the fudge and the peanut butter cup wanted to have a little privacy).

Judy, I used to do the same thing. When I was hungry I would "accidentally" tear the packaging on a ribeye steak in hopes it would be marked down and put at the service desk for all of us to enjoy. The best part was the other employees didn't like raw steak and all the flies it attracted, so I got to eat the entire steak. (I always carried a toothpick with me to remove the fly legs and wings from between my teeth so the boss wouldn't know I was eating the steak) Those were good times... (burp)

jals

Ken,
Who has eaten what?
I'm lost. lol

jals

Yes, we were high school students. Otherwise, we were very good employees.
My bear, which was 2.5" square was $5. Sounds like the shop you went in, Bubble was even higher. They had a huge display of candied apples for sale and one person bought one that was just in front of us. Conveniently, no prices were displayed. I'll have to ask Hubby how much the truffles were as he inquired about those.

Bubble

Sorry Judy - of course I did mean you. So you guys 'accidentally' cut into the bag. Hmmm …….. methinks this might have happened quite a bit - I'm sure the employers allowed extra for accidents - I would have done the same. (❀ᴗ❀)

John in the R.M store in Nanaimo, they had, eg small pkts of flavoured popcorn for over $8, everything was at least a third more expensive than elsewhere. I can only imagine that tourists buy in there, who don't care about wasting their money. I hope you put your pce of fudge. in the safe and are parcelling it out in micrograms !! (❀ᴗ❀)

klocowolf

That's because she has already eaten it. Mouse and squirrel are very fast.

jals

I'm going to assume you meant me and not Dawn, Bubble.
Oh too bad! You could have had a month's supply.
When I worked for a store while in high school, frequently when we would cut into a box of candy to open it, we'd accidentally cut open a bag and then it would have to be marked down and set at the service desk and employees could have some.

Bubble

This'll make you laugh Dawn. When we lived in Toronto years ago we shopped at the bulk barns, large stores that sold in bulk everything from baking stuff to candy. Huge bins full. I was standing in front of the candy bins (of course) when a man came out from the stores carrying a huge plastic bag of Smarties may 15-20lb. He was right by me when the bag split, he dropped it and the whole lot fell on the floor, several inches deep.

I was not quick enough off the mark. While I dithered he ran back brought a broom over and started sweeping it all up. I always regret not opening my purse and loading up from the top when I had the chance ! Today I wouldn't hesitate !! (❀ᴗ❀)

jals

John,
Did she give you a taste? She might have sold your favorite hamster.

jals

Bubble,
Yes, the prices were ridiculous!
Sweeping up chocolate? I'd be tempted to eat off the floor. lol
Okay, I'll remember that!

rswestley

What a co-winkie dink. My wife brought home a small chunk of Rocky Mountain Fudge Sunday. She said "someone" gave it to her. I will have to look and see if my wife took out a second mortgage on our house...

Bubble

Judy, I walked into Rocky Mountain last week in our mall, was appalled at the prices, laughed and walked out again. Have not tasted their choc.

We visited Hersheys in Smith Falls Ontario many years ago, self guided tour and the neat thing was walking along the corridors of the factory, looking down and seeing someone sweep up all that choc. on the floor. I was hard put not to join him ! They had misshaped chocs. in bags in their gift shop so we indulged in those, a great experience but Hubb says they've since closed down (probably just after we visited haha).
You're on for a choc. tour any time - just give me a call out ! (❀ᴗ❀)

jals

lol Bubble!
If I had the money to invest, I surely would. And I would put you on the Board of Directors. Free samples at monthly Board meetings. ;-)
We stopped in a candy shop on our trip and I did buy a hazelnut bear (didn't look like a bear to me) and it was good, but I have to say for $5, it wasn't that good. Cheaper candy would have tasted just as good to me. Disappointed. Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
Maybe you and I should meet up in Hershey Pennsylvania and tour their factory and see if they'd give free samples. :-))

Bubble

Judy - I see we've gotten onto a chocolate jag again, but its a topic I can always talk about. Chunky kit kats are going the rounds here - but we have several Canadian brands, like Purdys (in all the malls), Rogers (very upmarket) and some smaller companies. All worth a visit. We're missing a chocolate factory in our area with self guided tours - r u interested in investing ? (❀ᴗ❀)

jals

p.s. Snickers are my favorite candy bar.

jals

lol John! You did need to go to bed.
I wondered if they were true and embellished just a little, and was going to look them up, but I was too tired. After a good night's sleep, I am happy to see they were. :-))
Thanks for keeping us amused, John! ☺

rswestley

Bub, I'm sorry you were such a deprived child. But growing up without Bullwinkle helps to explain why you enjoy lima beans. So sad.... so very sad

Judy, thanks for stopping by. As strange as it may seem, all the memorable events listed above are all true... dressed up a little to make them a bit tastier, but they are all actual events

Thank you all for stopping by to visit, but mommy says it's time for me to go to bed

jals

My husband loved Rocky and Bullwinkle. I wasn't all that fond of them probably because of Boris and Natasha.
I did like Popeye! With Oliveoil(sp) Sweet Pea, Brutus and the spinach. We ate spinach too when we were little, but I didn't hate it. Bubble, if only they'd had fresh spinach back in those days. I love a fresh spinach salad.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane, John, I mean T.I.M. Those were some pretty memorable events you have posted up there.

Bubble

Sadly, John, I am ignorant of Bullwinkle and his friendly sidekick as we did not receive such sophisticated cartoons in Merrie Olde England.

We had to make do with that ruffian Popeye, Olive Oyle and Bluto, who we watched religiously every week. We ate copious amounts of noxious spinach to try and emulate Popeye. Sadly the only thing we gained was a hatred of muscle bound idiots, creamed spinach, skinny scissor-legs girl friends, and garbled American.

So Happy Birthday dear Bullwinkle, you sound like a ray of sunshine after that rabble. :-)))

rswestley

Max, I'm aware of what the SST was, a supersonic transport, but what is a SSD? Supersonic Dump? Is it Apple's newest toilet, the i-dump? I've heard the i-dump is so fast, everything gets flushed down in a few milli-seconds. In fact, if your towels, shower curtain and bath mat aren't nailed down, they will also get sucked down also. The i-dump is not recommended for people that wear wigs or have false teeth

OldManMontgomery

Initially "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show" with special guest voices of Edward Everett Horton, William Conrad and others.

I could always do Bullwinkle's voice (much to the delight of my two boys) but I could never do Rocky. I later found out Rock's voice was done by June Foray - my vocal cords were not so designed. Sigh...

Such a good time.

I thought Boris and Natasha's handler was Fearless Leader?

nanab

Happy Birthday Bullwinkle.
I haven't thought of you in years but I do have happy giggle memories of my sister and I watching your show. I hope you had some of your favorite food on your special day, I know you won't ever forget what you ate.

Max_Tooney

Putinoff was Boris and Natasha's handler.

ParsonWayne

Random Thoughts:

I have won first place in this Halloween costume contest 16 years in a row. This year I am dressed as a hotdog. I'm on a roll.

What do you call a Russian procrastinator? Putinoff.

Where did the spaghetti and the sauce go dancing? The meatball!

By the way, I LOVED the Bullwinkle show

Max_Tooney

Yep. I compare 'brain' memory to a computer hard disk, or even its newer iteration, the SSD. It works astoundingly well when new (young person) ; not so well when it's old.

rswestley

It's amazing the crap we remember... Chuck Connors, James Arness, Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, James Drury, Fess Parker... I keep wondering when all this mental junk will be put to good use... and then I remember JIGIDI! …. oh wait! I said put to "good" use. Nevermind...
