Since I have no experience in posting a vanity, I can only hope that I have done this right?

Does anyone else think Justice John Roberts looks like "Howdy Doody"?

I do confess this is my second post here in 14 years; the first one went over equally as well. It was the night of the Presidential Election and I could not have been more distraught, horrified, and without the words to adequately express all the feelings I had because I knew exactly what we all were in for. I feel much the same now in all regards, being completely speechless and gut wrenchingly sick to my stomach as well as mostly being flamed, deemed ridiculous and most likely some drunk that probably on a sober day can’t spell or punctuate.

Excuse me for wasting everyone’s time; I was simply curious, and the fist post was out of mere frustration that I should have never sent. So I apologize to you all and do hope you all have a blessed, what ever we call it now, Holiday.

Lol, there was a politician a few years ago who bore a resemblance to Howdy Doody and I posted him then and got some criticism about it!! Can't recall who it was though.

Hope you spelled it correctly and used the correct punctuation. It would appear to be sinful and in some cases unforgivable.

Go over to this FR Help Page and read what JR has said. Then go down to the HTML and Tutorial links and browse thru them and practice on the HTML threads. In no time you'll be posting without hesitancy using photos, graphics, etc. Good luck.

Oh, very few of the comments are giving you a serious hard time. Mostly they're just joking or poking fun. In any case, it's only an internet forum. Don't feel obliged to take anyone's comments too seriously.

> Excuse me for wasting everyone’s time; I was simply curious,...

Hasn't been a waste of time at all IMO. I've been enjoying it on my day off...

> ... and the fist post was out of mere frustration...

Ah, I understand. Fist posts can be VERY frustrating. This one for example...

Sorry, couldn't help myself... :) That's one of my own common typos, too, right up there with "frist".

You have entered the Twilight Zone. Please step away from your keyboard, adjust your seat for maximum recline, and prepare to embark on a journey to unknown places where fantasy rules and reality is but a dream!

You should consider yourself lucky you only double-posted. Some victims of this curse experience up to five identical posts!

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. I have asked Al Baby, exalted Father of the Beeber, for forgiveness, and he has mercifully forgiven my transgression.

What can I say? My own beeber was already stuned, so I slipped up. Now I need a shower...

Likewise confused. Seems that was a strong statement but hardly one worthy of a ZOT. Didn't seem personal at all; followed the guidelines laid out by the Religion Mod, as far as I could tell. And yet that is clearly Quix's Last Comment. Interesting.

Here's a great question and an unusual answer:

I came across the very last 1960 Howdy Doody show on the internet last night and I remember watching it as a child but I have a silly question that had bug me for 49 years or so.

In the last show they had everyone packing in order to leave the town of Doodyville however in the show before this one they was going to tell the kids the story reason of why they was all leaving and my parents had me out of town during that show.

So my question that I could not find on the internet is what reason did the writers come up with for shutting down Doodyville?

Somehow I do not think it had anything to do with the ratings dropping.

Reply:

Well, It was a rather convoluted story.

Princess Summer Fall Winter Spring got knocked up by that Duck thing and they were looking to abort, but , back then, there was no Rowe v Wade so they had to trip her off to Sweden where she got a severe case of vaginitis, Very Sad.

Doody then had to go into rehab for chemical induced depression. He was suicidal for quite a while before getting it together.

Buffalo Bob turned gay and was packing Clarabell, who was diagnosed with some pneumonial condition and Sarkosie's sarcoma. This was suspected to have been transmitted to Buffalo Bob by some , then, unknown vector. This was a time when that whole thing was not dealt with any understanding.

Mr Bluster died in a failed hit on Mr Fixapants and there was a big court fight over the entire DOodeyville properties since he was the owner of record. They had to hire a major law firm for the probate hearings and Doodeyville finally went to that puppet (Dilly Dally)with the beanie , who, as it turned out was the love child of Bluster and the cleaning lady. Dally had a severe gambling problem and went deep in debt to some shylock , who extorted all the Doodeyville properties from Dally.

The entire site has been converted to a Big Box Chrysler/GM Car mall since then.

It was not an ending where everyone was "moving on" to other things. Doody was later trying to make it as Window dummy but developed a bad hip and had to undergo a hip replacement. (Back in those days they used ceramic for the joints and these were found later to induce blood clots in the veinous system) . Doody died of a thrombosis in 78 and he wasnt found until several days after he died in a hot summer of New York City near the site of the thermos bottle building.

After Howdy's death, Buffalo Bob tried to resurrect the show with Howdy's brother Rudie Doody but Rudie had an ADD problem and never showed up for rehersals.

All in all, it was best that the show ended on its downward arc, to have ended a few years later, what with all the problems that everyone was having, it would have been even sadder.

I hope this helps.

OMG I missed that episode as I was being tutored in English and working hard on my punctuation at the time. I was deemed even at a very young age to be not only illiterate but quite prone to delusions and believed strongly that Howdy Doody’s puppet was real. I even thought that perhaps he would grow up some day to be a Supreme Court Justice and uphold a black President’s health care law, which would finally put an end to the Constitution of the United States. Even now I believe it to be true though I must be mistaken!

Thank you so very much for remembering so very clearly that last episode, as I will now search the net for it. Fascinating, absolutely fascinating, would have love to have seen it.

The real story is worse.

NBC and the other stations used to reuse the videotapes for all the early TV shows to save money. They are gone.

Also, Buffalo Bob had a second career doing stand-up marijuana comedy to college audiences. All mention scrubbed from the Net.

Everything vanishes. And we thought the burning of the library at Alexandria was bad.
