The drink request was from me. I forgot to sign in first. Merry Christmas Rex. Hang loose Mother Goose!
Avatar 1:48pm Reeshard:

Nice to hear Gaylord mention the wonderful 'Beany & Cecil' show amidst your holiday proceedings. You do know, of course, that Lord Buckley himself contributed a character to the show, the Wildman of Wildsville: www.youtube.com...
Avatar 1:53pm Reeshard:

Of all the holiday institutions either enjoyed or endured at this time of the year, the FP Fur-Lined Fallout Shelter Party is the most anticipated in our house, constituting nothing less than mandatory holiday listening. So glad the Grade "A" Fancy Mag staff rose to the occasion, as always. Pimm's No.1, so righteous!

Why does Rex call Todd “The Boss Gruber”?
  2:41pm sweet corn Lizzie:

There was a tranquilizer in the 50s whose name was similar to Miltown - that’s what the title refers to. SJ Perelman is great.
Avatar 2:41pm Mister Dobalina:

What a great gift to hear other's open their own gifts.
  2:43pm sweet corn Lizzie:

Just looked it up and it actually was called Miltown. You could look it up.
