Mary Worth 166

I think it's weird that these boys are named Ron (Howard?) and Richie (Cunningham?). I was a huge Happy Days fan. Maybe she only has one son and he's doing sort of the Gollum/split-personality thing. I'm hoping Mary will team up with the Fonz to go kick some serious sense into this psychopath.

We have a winner in yesterday's Not-A-Real-Contest! Thanks everyone for your great guesses, but what are Ron and Richie arguing about? "Less Filling! Tastes Great!" Congratulations Boojum. You get to recommend the next song added to the Charterstone Jukebox (find the jukebox in the right hand column of the blog). Now there's just the one caveat: the Condo Board is kind of particular about what songs can go into the jukebox so you're going to need to give this some thought if you want you're song approved. I suggest listening to the songs that are already in there if you need some ideas.

And, finally, Mary Worth and Me was mentioned in Michigan's online news source, Mlive.com. It's a real honor for this humble blog. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the article and you'll see it. I only take exception to the idea that I'm making fun of Mary Worth... I prefer "Having fun with Mary Worth." I'm just not snarky enough to enjoy making fun of this hilarious comic strip. I leave that to the brilliant Comics Curmudgeon.

"Rich was not as present." Oh sweet Lord.

Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow! I'm so excited I could plotz!

Listening to the random playlist on the Charterstone jukebox, my main impression is that it's sort of... random. Many of the selections are predictable. A few, however, I suspect got through the Selection Committee during that two-and-a-half-year period when Mary was on the Way Back Train with Toby.

I am, at any rate, shocked -- SHOCKED! -- to find that the immortal Lawrence Welk is not represented. His Champagne Bubbles theme has always been on the PA system of my mind, as the background music of the Charterstone Pool Parties (TM). This oversight must be corrected.

"Calcutta!" -- with its Myron Floren virtuoso accordian work -- would be an excellent choice. But my first pick, and my formal request as Not-A-Contest Winner, is another 70's classic. Backed by the entire Lawrence Welk Orchestra, Gail and Dale sing "One Toke Over the Line, Sweet Jesus."

I do not have to be kidding. Here's the Youtube link:

Make it so.
