New Blog Design & Colors
Scowl-Face has been messing about with my blog design and color schemes again, so I thought I'd better ask my loyal and insightful readers whether or not it looks good. Has Scowl-Face laid an egg again? If so, that would probably be worth something.
Hoosier comedian Red Skelton laid a square egg as the punch-line of a sketch on his comedy/variety television program, The Red Skelton Hour. (Skelton had several TV series on NBC and CBS between 1951-1971; most were variant titles of The Red Skelton Show, which was retitled ... Hour in 1962 as CBS expanded the format.) The square egg discussion is one of the few bits of information Scowl-Face remembers from his second grade class. (Otherwise, it's all a blur of incomprehension and fidgeting.) He overheard some classmates laughing about the skit they had watched the previous evening. Not being familiar with the show, he wondered how a "red skeleton" could lay any kind of egg, square or otherwise.
Please let me know in the comments section if you like (or not) the new design and colors. We can probably fix any damage done, if ol' Scowlly can remember what he did to change things.

P.S. Enjoy this kinescope from Season 9, Episode 29 of The Red Skelton Show, in which one of Skelton's characters, Clem Kadiddlehopper, has to sell his cow. The sketch was called "Clem and the Beanstock." Skelton based the character Clem on his Vincennes, Indiana childhood neighbor, Carl Hopper, who was hard of hearing.
