Happy Birthday Milton Supman

Today is Soupy Sales' 79th birthday.

Happy Birthday Soupy!

Oddly enough, although I like his work, I'm too young to have ever seen his children's show live, and his asking kids to send him little green pieces of paper from their parents' wallets was several years before my time.

And for some odd reason, I find this joke he never told to be really funny:

I won!

Okay, it wasn't the iPod, but either a $20 iTunes gift card or a $20 Amazon gift card, my choice. Wasn't hard—since I still don't have an iPod, I decided to go with the Amazon gift card. But I still have a chance of winning an iPod though.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
