Moral of the story is, don't win a Nobel prize or you will die.

From the show that plagiarized everything about the Simpsons here is yet something else they steal.

I didn't even watch the episode. That's how far Family Guy is off of my radar. Once Seth decided to use the show as his personal soapbox, I lost a lot of interest.

I'm gonna call my shot and say Brian is back by next season. Somehow Stewie reassembles his time machine and brings Brian back because of low ratings he misses him.

I don't know who this is, but I figure someone on here who follows country music might:

Wayne Mills?

Saw on his Facebook status page yesterday, something like, "Why are y'all sitting around being sad for me? Have some drinks and toast to the good times." as if he had typed it.

Comedian Jay Leggett passed. I remember him in a few things. At least he died doing something he loved.

Lewis Collins, aka Bodie, the Ford Capri-driving ladies man working as an agent for British CI5 spy agency in the best crime TV series in the history of the Universe.

I was ~10 when the series came (end of 70s and beginning of 80s), and there will never be anything that even remotely touches the greatness of this TV awesomeness...
