TV Show host and all-around old guy, Art Linkletter died at the spry age of 97.

Linkletter, who’s show "House Party" was the launching padArtLinkletter for the careers of Kid n’ Play (who broke up into separate acts booked as "Kid n’" and "n’ Play".  After years of court battles, it was eventually ruled that Play actually held the right to use the "n’"… but I digress).  Interestingly enough, Kid stole the high-top-fade hairdo from Linkletter.

One of the features of "House Party" was segments in which creepy old-man Linkletter would interview young, impressionable children.  The popularity of this spurned his "Children Say The Darndest Things," which was eventually consumed and bastardized by the evil Cosby machine.  Both the Linkletter and Cosby versions are fully indorsed by NAMBLA.

This hit goes to: Gianna!  Linkletter is one of Gianna’s hold-over picks.  So, next year she gets to hold over someone new.  Luckily for me, there are more more Delrubio sisters for her to steal from me.

This puts Gianna comfortably into the At-least-I-have-as-many-points-as-Bean Club with me and… well…. Bean..

Happy pooling,

SPMI
