Something I Did Not Know. . . .

Post by Doctor X »

. . . dedicated to falling down an internet well searching for actors, writers, bodies, that highly rare French lichen porn, and Anax's Waifu Mom.

One of my favorite series is Yes, Minister, and Yes, Prime Minister. It remains timely, almost scary in its continued relevance. The more liberal creator, whom I remember as an actor from another comedy series, described the Hacker character as "a mouse learning how to be a rat." With his more conservative co-creator, they created a gem that remains.



But he created another.
He directed My Cousin Vinny.

Well, the one who gave us The Ruling Class, Let Him Have it, and shagged That Girl from The Survivors also gave us Species II. . . .

Neil Young and Ronnie Van Zant loved one another's music.

Dan Castellaneta based his Homer Simpson "D'oh" on Laurel and Hardy foil James Finlayson, who would utter a longer "D'oooooooh" since he could not swear. Fantastically funny character actor:



the classic is Big Business

Something I learned not today but recently Leonard and Sheldon on Big Bang Theory were named for Sheldon Leonard, the famous TV writer. That part I knew

What I did not know was that Sheldon Leonard was Nick, the Bartender in It’s A Wonderful Life. This guy.
