The legendary Soupy Sales died today. He was one of the greats and had a truly unique "Kids" show that was for kids AND adults. White Fang, Black Tooth, Pookie, Mumbles, Peaches were all part of his gang. He'd throw out double entendre jokes like..."I took my girl to a baseball game. I kissed her between the strikes and she kissed me between the balls". If you never heard of Soupy Sales, go to You Tube and check out clips from his show.
How great was Soupy? I still remember bits from 45 yesrs ago. There\'s a knock on Soupy\'s door. Soupy opens the door and a pair of hands reach out and start shaking him by the collar. The voice says, \"You gotta help me!\" Soupy asks, \"What\'s wrong?\" The voice says \"I\'m going crazy. All I can think of is baseball. Every day, every hour, all I can think about is baseball. It\'s driving me nuts!\" Soupy suggests, \"Why don\'t you try thinking about sex?\" The voice snaps back, \"What? And miss my turn at bat?\"
