Oh, and speaking of kids...and "gimme my money back!" moments...

Soupy Sales passed away last week. He gained notoriety for his New Year's show, when, in a fit of pique at having to work on a holiday, he discovered the true power of television:

Shel Silverstein's Uncle Shelby's ABZ Book played around with that a few years earlier:

...but Soupy, in saying that on television, got considerably more mileage and money out of it, money he promptly donated to charity.

Hope you're enjoying "Puerto Rico", Soupy...or wherever you may have ended up.

Thanks for the Soupy clip. Loved that guy when I was a kid. Still do.
