All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, January 22, 2009
Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In first appeared on NBC Television on January 22, 1968. Hosted by comedians Dan Rowan and Dick Martin, the variety show featured many up-and-coming comedy stars, such as Ruth Buzzi, Judy Carne, Richard Dawson, Henry Gibson, Goldie Hawn, Arte Johnson, Tiny Tim, Lily Tomlin, Flip Wilson, JoAnne Worley and more.
Several one-liners from Laugh-In became iconic popular culture quips:
“Here come da judge.”
“Look that up in your Funk and Wagnalls.”
“One ringy-dingy. Two ringy-dingy.”
“Say Goodnight, Dick.”
“Sock it to me.”
“Very interesting. But stupid.”
“You bet your bippy.”
“And that’s the truth.”
Today’s Meme Express prompt is “laugh.”
Pick one of the Laugh-In quotes (listed above), or write about something that makes you laugh. How about posting a photo or an illustration that you find funny.
