Should I feel embarrassed for not getting this?

FTFA: "Absolutely not, says Rod Harris, a Centerville talent manager who insists that the statue he helped bankroll not move one inch."

So the way he proves his point is to move the statue to a hotel that's 25 miles away? There's some epic fail.

No need to be embarrassed. But you should probably shank yourself immediately.

If you are not American and/or under twenty then, no, don't feel ashamed.

Those of us over twenty and American who grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons knew that when Hee-Haw, where she starred or Solid Gold came on, cartoons were over for the day.

Hey, Grandpa! What's for supper?
 
2009-03-04 05:57:23 PM  
Where oh where
Are you tonight?
Why did you leave me here all alone?

I searched the world over
And I thought I found true love
You met another and
Phbbthht
You was gone!
 
2009-03-04 06:58:26 PM  
I'm ashamed I caught the reference, but not so much that I won't stop by to loudly applaud subby.

Well-typed, good sir or madam.

Embarrassed for being under 40? Nah.

Well done subby.
 
2009-03-04 07:32:25 PM  
Woe, despair and agony on me
Deep dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all
Woe, despair and agony on me

/Good line subby!!

The Minnie Pearl Wikipedia Page

For those too young to remember.

Of course, only being 27 myself, I feel even older for knowing her.
 
2009-03-04 08:15:04 PM  
Headline of the year?
 
2009-03-04 08:33:08 PM  
My houseful of Southerners laughed so hard we cried. That was *beautiful*.

(and one silly Northerner that didn't get it, so sad.)

+one million, Subby!

Attaboy, subby.
 
2009-03-05 01:29:59 AM  
Subby thanks you - but gives credit where it is due. I got the line from an old friend who does stand-up now.
 
2009-03-05 02:43:04 AM  
Clearly, the woman never watched Baretta.

flushdepot: Woe

Gloom, despair and agony on me
Deep dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all
Woe
Gloom, despair and agony on me
