The juxtaposition here is humorous.

THE Rotary Phone The rotary dial with holes was first introduced in 1904 but did not enter service in the Bell System until 1919 Have you ever watched an old television show and seen a rotary style telephone sitting on the table? Ever wonder how to use that phone? Well today is your lucky day! You are about to find out how to do just that. 1Remove the handset from the cradle.(The cradle is where the phone rests when not in use) 2Place the handset to your ear and listen for a dial tone. 3Use the index finger from your other hand to dial the first number. Do so by placing the finger in the dial's hole that is above the number you wish to dial. The dial, is also called the finger wheel, is circular. 4Rotate the dial clockwise until your finger touches the metal stop. Remove your finger from the opening to allow the dial to rotate to its original position. 5Find your second number and repeat step three and four. Do this for the remaining numbers. When you are finished with your conversation, simply place the phone back on the cradle. NOTE, If you have long or decorated fingernails, and are concerned that dialing might damage them, you may use the eraser end of a pencil to dial.

Pinky and the Brain Intro 1993 Original run : September 9, 1995 – November 14, 1998. The characters Pinky and the Brain first appeared in 1993 as a recurring segment on the show Animaniacs. From 1995 to 1998, Pinky and the Brain were spun off into their own show on The WB Television Network, Steven Spielberg Presents Pinky and the Brain, with 65 episodes produced by Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros. Animation. Later, they appeared in the unsuccessful series, Steven Spielberg Presents Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain. Pinky and Brain are genetically enhanced laboratory mice who reside in a cage in the Acme Labs research facility. Brain is self-centered and scheming; Pinky is good-natured but feeble minded. In each episode, Brain devises a new plan to take over the world, which ultimately ends in failure, usually due to Pinky's idiocy, the impossibility of Brain's plan, Brain's own arrogance, or just circumstances beyond their control. In common with many other Animaniacs shorts, many episodes are in some way a parody of something else, usually a film or novel. The opening song is preceded by the following dialogue: Pinky: "Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?" The Brain: "The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!"

Toot-A-Loop was also known as Bangle Radio in the 70'S -Toot-A-Loop was also known as Bangle Radio.It was meant to be worn around the wrist like a bracelet, or carried like a purse. If twisted, the radio’s smaller half would spin and its larger half would separate, forming the shape of the letter S. In reality, the Panasonic product, was shaped like a tapered doughnut, twisting open to reveal the tuning dial for AM radio inside. OWNED!

Lou Gehrig Farewell Speech - Full Version Most baseball fans have seen the newsreel footage of Lou Gehrig's poignant 1939 farewell speech. (I posted it a while back.) For some unfathomable reason, the speech was severely edited. On the 75th anniversary of it in 2014, Keith Olbermann added the missing dialogue.

William Frawley-Vivian Vance Feud As any good sitcom fan knows, from 1951 to 1960 William Frawley and Vivian Vance played Fred and Ethel and Mertz--Lucy and Ricky Ricardo's landlords and best friends on I Love Lucy and the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour. Frawley and Vance performed comedy magic on the set, but they truly detested each other. Problems began on the first day of shooting when Vance commented that no one would believe her character would be married to 'that old coot.' (Vance, who was 42 in 1951, was 22 years younger than Frawley.) Frawley overheard the remark and never forgave Vance for that barb. Often when Vance suggested even the smallest change in dialogue in the script, Frawley would storm off the set--solely because it was Vance who made the suggestion. Long before I Love Lucy began, Frawley had a reputation for being a difficult actor to work with due to his mercurial temperament and love of the bottle. Perhaps his hatred of Vance gave the exchanges between the two co-stars some extra zing. When The Lucy Desi-Comedy Hour ended, CBS proffered the idea of Vance and Frawley co-starring in a spinoff titled Fred and Ethel. Apparently Frawley liked the idea because of the potential money in it, but Vance swiftly quashed the idea, saying she wanted nothing to do with Frawley ever again. Frawley's next TV role was Bub O'Casey on My Three Sons. Tim Considine, who played eldest son Mike Douglas, recalled Frawley exploding into profanity-laced rages whenever someone innocently asked him about Vance. Considine further recalled that Frawley would occasionally disrupt the shooting of The Lucy Show by tossing noisy objects near the sound stage if Vance was trying to do a scene. Frawley suddenly died of a heart attack in 1966. Upon hearing the news, Vance reputedly shouted, 'Champagne for everyone!'

Chuck Hughes - 1971 NFL Fatality Despite its obvious inherent violence, the National Football League has only ever had one fatality occur on the field since it first began play in 1921--and it occurred from an undiagnosed heart ailment rather than from a bone-jarring collision. On October 24, 1971, Chuck Hughes of the Detroit Lions died during the final two minutes of a home game at Tiger Stadium versus the Chicago Bears. Hughes was born in Pennsylvania in 1943 but grew up in Texas with his 14 siblings. He set several school records for pass receiving at Texas Western University. He had spotty NFL career that began with the Philadelphia Eagles. By 1971 Hughes was used mostly as a special teams player and occasionally at wide receiver. On that fateful day Hughes collapsed while returning to the Lions' huddle following a play that did not involve him. Before his collapse it had been a very uneventful game for Hughes. The Bears held a 28-23 lead in a see-saw battle when the Lions got the ball back for one last drive toward the end zone. With under two minutes to go, Lions' quarterback Greg Landry dropped back and found Hughes on a crossing pattern for a 32-yard gain. He was sandwiched and brought down by two Bear defenders at the Chicago 37-yard line. Unhurt, Hughes popped up immediately and ran back to the Detroit huddle. It was the fifteenth and last catch of Chuck Hughes' career. After two straight incompletions Hughes was walking slowly back to the line of scrimmage when he suddenly grabbed his chest and fell to the ground. Some fans initially thought that Hughes might be faking an injury to give the Lions more time to devise their next play. But everyone in the stadium quickly became aware that something was terribly wrong when they saw Chicago's Dick Butkus waving his arms frantically at the Detroit bench and yelling for help. Team doctors Edward Guise and Richard Thompson rushed onto the field in an attempt to revive the lifeless Hughes. Guise began mouth-to-mouth resuscitation while Thompson performed CPR. They were joined by Dr. Eugene Boyle, an anesthesiologist from Gross Pointe, MI, who descended from the stands. It was all to no avail. Hughes was pronounced dead at Henry Ford Hospital. He was 28. The photo of the incident shown here led many people to wrongly believe that Dick Butkus had administered a fatal blow to Hughes. Hughes' cause of death was declared to be a coronary thrombosis, which caused a massive myocardial infarction which cut off the blood flow to his heart. Hughes had had concerns about chest pains weeks before October 24, but a medical examination turned up nothing amiss. Hughes' family eventually sued Henry Ford Hospital for malpractice and was given an out-of-court settlement. Hughes left behind a young widow and a son who was not quite two years old. The Lions have retired Hughes' jersey #85.
