The co-creator of Let's Make a Deal died at home of old age (96). Did you know the game show didn't start with zany costumes? I still enjoy watching it in the morning with Wayne Brady as host.

A nice write-up here: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/30/obituaries/monty-hall-dea...

Although if it's heaven, hell, and a goat--instead of heaven and two goats--and God just shows a goat if he can, then maybe it's a coin flip?

I hate to sound insensitive, but I thought he had been gone for a while now.

Nope....Canadian.



[To bring it full circle, Monty Hall's head shot was one of several hanging behind Ken Ober on the MTV game show Remote Control on which they had a category called "Dead or Canadian."]

I bought some shoes from a drug dealer. I don’t know what he laced them with, but I’ve been tripping all day.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.
