Benson

This weekend, TV Land was running a Benson marathon. Benson!

It’s one of those shows that was kind of funny, mildly original, and it starred Robert Guillaume, which I guess makes it a good candidate for TV Land. But, c’mon… it was no Family Ties.

I still have nightmares about Kraus.

I'm working with David Ruprecht right now in Atlantic City, who was the long time host of "Supermarket Sweep". Yesterday, we were sitting around having lunch, flipping around on the TV. Suddenly, we got to TV Land, and there was none other than David Ruprecht on "Benson" as the slimy Lt. Governor. Man, he cringed over some of the hairstyles on that show...including his own.

I know it's not Benson, but that M. Baxter-Burney...WOO WOO! It made my day when she dropped the Burney.

Sigh.

Ciao,

Fuck!! This would be a perfect weekend for my dream party: six foot penut-butter and jelly party subs and Benson reruns.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
