Too many non-sitcom titles showing up, but rather than argue, I added a second category

 

At August 19, 2005 at 8:38:00 PM CDT, Blogger JLee said...

"Hens" instead of "Friends" I know, it's a stretch

"Dawson's Beak"

 

At August 19, 2005 at 8:42:00 PM CDT, Blogger JLee said...

I'm on a bird theme here

"Love Goat"

 

At August 19, 2005 at 8:51:00 PM CDT, Blogger JLee said...

"Average Crow" ok, I'm back to the bird thing

 

At August 19, 2005 at 9:40:00 PM CDT, Blogger stan said...

Pass on "Hens", and I already have one with a goat. Unless you can prove that "The Love Boat" was a drama :)

At August 20, 2005 at 12:40:00 AM CDT, Blogger stan said...

I only passed on "Punky Shrewster" because of Punky duplication.

I want a recount, my chad is hanging.

El Froggo - If you saw "I Love Lemurs" without explanation, would you still know it was referencing "I Love Lucy"?

 

At August 20, 2005 at 1:40:00 AM CDT, Blogger Jim said...

if Froggo gets "I Love Lemurs" then I get "Married...with Kids"

I already have "Married With Offspring", and "Goat Smart", so there's duplication two different ways, there.

I wasn't even going to include "Lemurs" and "Bunch" because these shouldn't require explanation. It's a basic comedy rule, when you write a joke, it should be delivered so the audience can get it on their own, as it stands.

Two guys walk into a bar..you'd think the second guy would've ducked.
