Overheard

“I’m gonna give you three seconds to put that violin down, nice and easy.”

[The television was on in the background, for “warmth.” It was Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord) speaking. ¿Quién es más macho: David Janssen, Lloyd Bridges, o Jack Lord?]

Jack Lord, easy.

Wow you change your blog subtitle ("description") a lot.

Michael Leddy said...

In my book, you are correct. But in the skit, it’s Lloyd Bridges. :(

I try to keep something from the front page (the ten most recent posts) as the description. So it changes often. Just for fun.

Women are the only ones qualified to actually answer this, and the answer is Lloyd Bridges by a mile. It wasn't even close!

What about Lloyd Bridges v. Ricardo Montalban?

From this distance, and without knowing the "cultural subtext", it reads rather like the caption of a Glen Baxter cartoon.

What a juxtaposition! I love Glen Baxter’s work, Barnaby.

The subtext: it was a stolen violin. I wasn’t watching, so that’s all I know.

Elaine said...

Uh-oh. Certainly Richardo Montalban leaves all three in the dust....it's just that he wasn't on the list of choices you gave.

Montalban was in the skit (v. Fernando Lamas). I was making a Final Two.
