OK I know it is not smart to start offering opinions about hot button topics in our society today. I KNOW it is against the rules here and I try to avoid them at all costs and generally do a pretty good job. I know this is going to get 1/2 the people I know angry but I just can not keep quiet any longer on the matter. You just reach a point where enough is enough and you have to speak out no matter what the cost to you personally or professionally. So here it is I am just going to come out and say it. Repercussions be darned!

The Flintstones is derivative of the Honeymooners.

Discuss.

Speaking of old shows, I just saw Stan & Ollie last night which captured Laurel and Hardy's final stage tour through Great Britain at the end of their careers. Very enjoyable. Who knew John C Reilly was such a good actor!?!?

And how come it stopped talking?
The waterbuffalo hats was a grab. Then Ed Norton (Yogi Bear) got his own show. :)

Did Phil Silvers or Art Carney object to the Hanna-Barbera cartoons? They sure kept Daws Butler busy.

According to Wikipedia, it is.

Also a smaller version of a vacuum cleaner right?

My favorite was the Octopus dishwasher.

In the middle of this post I found the elephant vacuum cleaner and the Dishwasher and Bill's faucet. I did not remember the elephant water cooler.

I read the other day that millennials are complaining that Seinfeld is “super offensive.” If THAT’S offensive, I wonder how long it will be before The Honeymooners are denounced by the P.C. Police. Or The Flintstones, for that matter.

And that poor ole coyote, he ain’t got a lick of sense and that Road Runner is so mean to him. Won’t be long Arthur Stead.

Everyone is offended by every little thing because they are focused on themselves so much. That’s why I love doing magic at the children’s home... it sure makes you stop being offended lol.

I have sort of bittersweet memories of visiting the old Bedrock village theme park thing on Route 66. On the one hand it was awesome seeing how someone made all of that stuff, obviously by hand, but also sad how run down it had become due to not being such a big moneymaker. The problem with liking weird stuff is that it usually goes away when people aren't buying.

I remember visiting that theme park as a kid. Riding in the Flintsone’s car (with broke muffle on the hidden engine making it clear it was no foot powered). It was in sad shape when we stopped, I could, see that even as a ten year old. Costumes fraying and the building paint chipping . But was still such an oddball park, you had to love it.

I can't tell if you're calling me a moron for some reason or what is going on but I do get that for whatever reason you are angry. Dude if it was a joke I simply did not get it. I can't connect the dots I am sorry. My bad. But certainly no reason to be angry.

Jerry Seinfeld stopped playing any collage concerts a couple of years back, for that reason. On the other hand
female comics do absolutely filthy acts that would have embarrassed Lenny, to sell out, basically all woman audiences on campus stages all over.

As to not watching the news...

I believe in the nature of people (both good and bad) and choose to believe that there are good people out there (news location) that will handle the crisis. Me being so many, many miles away cannot do anything but spike my blood pressure over it; so I don't partake.

My plate is full enough without stressing about things I cannot change. Unfortunately, that is the nature of 24 hour news. Fear and outrage sells.

As to the [i]other[/i] thing. I still believe [b]he[/b] would make a splendid magician with his astounding powers of misdirection. A little flash and flair and everyone is looking at the [i]curtain[/i] while he does the real trick.

In another thread (which has since [i]vanished[/i] I made an analogy about the prison system being drug free. Since they have all that fencing, walls, and prison guards; and to include strip searches and cell searches, there cannot be any drugs in the prison systems. Correlation aside... it is logical non?
Message: Posted by: Dannydoyle (Feb 16, 2019 03:00PM)
Absolutely about the news. I feel the same way about whoever is a temporary occupant of any office. They change. No need to get uptight about it.

And you can put any politician in for the HE you are talking about and be pretty close to the truth. You may not believe this but you can even put in those you agree with and admire and be right.

But lets keep this with the Flintstones please and try to forget the random lashing out at me for no reason. No need to get THIS thread deleted.
