On The Tonight Show, Johnny Carson once did a sketch where they were "retiring the Dolly Parton Jokes", which they did in a skit where they threw out every Boob Joke they could.

At the start of the skit they went to the Grave of Retired Jokes, where Carson read a few that had seen their day, like Euell Gibbons jokes and Tiny Tim jokes.

Sadly, I can't recall any of those jokes. All I can remember are the Dolly Parton gags.
From a web forum.


As for Euell Gibbons...


As for Tiny Tim, I'll let TimidToprope have a go, if he will oblige us.

In 1972, Glenn Perry a preposterous computer programer read "Center of the Cyclone" by Dr John C. Lilly, took a workshop with Dr. Lilly and turned his life around. Until then, Glenn's view of reality conformed to the traditional, Western, scientific model. In a very short time, his point of view expanded, allowing him to consider, examine and even adopt adeas and thoughts that were not necessarily "provable".

That's preposterous, not poseur-ious

Muchissimas gracimas, Senor Marlow. Love the vibes around here today. Can I get you a drink? I have only native hooch and no ice, however. I'm visiting in Djakarta's boondocks in my mind over some iced Folger's freeze-dried coffee.

For future reference.

Items I have determined that were in my backpack when it was taken.

1. The red Yosemite Day Pack itself, customized by Mark Tuttle at TOE.
2. A lens-cleaning pen.
3. A 55mm Canon lens.
4. My souvenir 2012 Facelift water bottle.
5. A Patagonia down jacket, gray, men's Lg.
6. Asthma inhaler with expansion chamber.
7. Leather wallet containing @ $49.
8. Reading glasses, non-Rx, with hard case.

Add in one bicycle worth nearly $350 and the cut cable, and it's not been a good year in terms of material gains, to say the least.

I could bore you all to tears with sob stories, but I'm okay with the rest of my ills, shortcomings, fails, and bills.

I DO miss climbing and I've shared my disappointment elsewhere.

I love to browse in antique/curiosity shops.

This one is a gem, in my opinion, because it's only a block from the venue of the OAKDALE CLIMBERS FESTIVAL (on the route to Starbuck's) on Hwy 120 in the center of town.

And the items are by and large of good to exceptional quality. No 'junk.'

One day I saw Evil Devil Woman basking in the sun on the Berkeley campus. I started to walk over and kick her in the rump but unfortunately I tripped over a crocodile on the way. The young man who had been listening opened his eyes and wondered at the dust, and took up the guitar to try and find the old man who had disappeared. But no where was he to be found. "The wolves," he said, looking out the door before the stranger came in, "are gone now." And that is exactly the point. They are gone now. But what had happened?

With the failure of Mr. Fahey's Galopagus Tortoise crop in 1956, he removed himself for a few years to the sunny gales and he hoped, for greener pastures, of Topanga Canyon, California, at a place called "Eagle's Nest." There at the home of Robert Riskin of McCabe's Guitar Shop, and among the golden birds between the crumbling carpathe, under the resilient dome, over the gentile griff, Fahey recorded again for the Delta Haze Recording Company, whose owners were Mr. Barrett Mansen (illustration no. 10) and Mr. Mark Levine. The former, a brewery owner, capable and decisive manager and financer, and the latter who was well-endowed financially also, endeavored to cash in on the current Blue-Grass Phaze which was sweeping the nation. The latter was also a gifted and talented guitarist, and so a session was arranged in which various combinations of instruments and vocalists were used, but only three musicians were present - Levine on back-up guitar and second kazoom, L. Mayne Smith, whose graceful five-string banjo work has been described as "much like a lacy filigree," and Fahey who played Hawaiian guitar, while Smith doubled by playing lead kazoom. The session, unrehearsed, was in some respects an example of communal creation. The main musical ideas, according to Fahey, whose testimony generally checks out, were his own, but as he stated, "both Smith and Levine contributed a great deal during that session not merely in terms of competent backupmanship, but in terms of creativity."
The tapes from this session were stolen by Mr. ED Denson, of Takoma Records, who, also a very shrewd and able businessman ("Mogul" might be a better term), according to his nature will stoop to any means to enhance his economic situation. Denson likewise wanted to cash in on the Blue-Grass Phaze as he had on the Delta Haze. And indeed he did. He sold some of the cuts to Mr. Ralph Riverboat of Boston, and these were issued on Riverboat RB 1, The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death. Despite what the RB notes state to the contrary, Mr. Fahey, assures us that the account we have given is accurate. Denson denies it.
And so Fahey was exposed to still another, new kind of music, the Blue-Grass Phaze.

"I stood in the streets of Takoma Park waiting for the whistle to blow. Once I jumped off and started up the Sligo River to see old Charlie Holloway. There had been an explosion that day at the Takoma Park Strawberry Cannery and the banks of the Sligo were lined with strawberry preserves. Near one of the lower locks there had been a jam on the rocks and the sluice was plugged up with strawberries. I noticed that as I proceeded up the river it began to back up on me. I had to hurry in order to avoid being trapped by the rising high water.
Jerry, the gate-keeper, fished me out at the last minute."
