Legal Advice: Wait Until You Are A Rich Celebrity (And Are Living In California) Before Being Arrested For Any Crime!

From the New York Times (the bold and italics are mine!)...

Michael Jackson Is Acquitted on All Counts in Molestation Case

Published: June 13, 2005

SANTA MARIA, Calif., June 13 - Michael Jackson was acquitted today of all charges in connection with accusations that he molested a 13-year-old boy he had befriended as the youth was recovering from cancer in 2003.

I guess Columbo really is fiction. Anne Baxter, Janet Leigh, and other rich celebrities would never be convicted on Earth Prime, the way they are on Earth Columbo.

Hey, two equally obscure references from two completely different mediums! And yet my stand up never caught on...

I wonder if having a square butt implanted on your face is not punishment enough...?

Janet Leigh wasn't convicted on Earth Columbo. Due to her Alzheimers or something, she forgot that she committed the murder. Her partner gallantly takes the fall and Columbo lets him.

On Earth Electric-Company, Columbo doesn't solve crimes because he's too busy singing with Sherlock Holmes and Kojak.

kit- not if you ask little kids to touch it.

capt.- I knew I was asking for you to comment when I included Janet Leigh! Earth Electric- Company... High-larious!

Less Janet Leigh and more Columbo.

Earth Electric Company is also where Spider-Man and the Blue Beetle used to team up, Spidey only talked in word balloons, and Superman became Supperman due to a misprint on his costume (and looked suspiciously like Bill Cosby). And unlike your modern Marvel Comics Spider-Man and your Tobey Maguire Spider-Man, nobody knew who Earth Electric Company Spider-Man was.

On Earth Spidey-Super-Stories, characters from the Marvel Universe regularly interact with characters from Electric Company and Sesame Street.

I was going to ask you about the lyrics of the song, then I read your blog. In the future, all peoples will only communicate in this fashion.

Or through robots.

Each detective also had his own verse about his method of crime-solving. The important thing was that the kids learned about reading the word "Who" (or something).

I also just remembered that Bill Cosby did not play Superman/Supperman. He did however complain about the destruction of an apartment door explaining "I'm the super, man." Didn't want to spread misinformation on the blog.

Thank you for your responsible blogging.
