Jon Hamm and Murray get emotional.

Kind of dying seeing this after starting Mad Men from the beginning.

Gerald Ford sucking back that sweet tobacco at a desk in the study of the president of the University of Alabama, April 13, 1978.  Ford was a big-time pipe smoker, and even had a pipe in his hand for his presidential portrait. Ford smoked for decades, until one day … According to Robert Barrett, the Army Military Aide to Ford during his presidency and later Ford’s Chief of Staff, it was Ford’s daughter Susan who convinced him to give up tobacco.

We’re sitting in the office out in Rancho Mirage and he says in his totally ineffective way as far as Susan’s concerned, “Well, you know, Susan, I’m pretty concerned about the fact that you’re smoking.” And Susie being this snippet little thing that she is, she’s great, she says, “Well, Daddy, I’ll stop smoking cigarettes if you stop smoking pipes.”  He got up from his chair, he went over, – I bet you the collection, I don’t know, but it has to be worth a quarter of a million dollars. I mean, there were ivory pipes and every head of state and every time he went somewhere, he got another pipe. He gathered up all the pipes in the office, there were a bunch of them there. Got a box from the conference room in the office out in Rancho Mirage. All the pipes. Leaves, goes all over the house. Takes all the pipes, calls Penny in and says, “Send these to the museum.” Last time he smoked a pipe. Forty-two years smoking a pipe and he stopped, like, on a dime.

And in case you were wondering, according to Susan, he was a
Field and Stream
man.

People who hold this almost religious reverence for the Constitution and treat it as some god-given, unquestionable set of commandments instead of a document written by rich, slave-owning white men to advance their interests are the fucking worst.

Does anyone else find it odd that our society expects 14-year-old kids to know what jobs they will want for the rest of their lives, but doesn’t believe an adult woman when she says she doesn’t want to be a mother?

Thank you

The Police Report that Inspired ‘Clue’

It’s a little known fact, but the famous murder-mystery game, Clue, was inspired by real events. Here is the police report from that fateful night.

9:37 p.m. - Officer George and I were clanking our police batons on the jail-cell bars when Ellington station received an emergency call from the Boddy Mansion. There was a quick male cry of “Hel-“ and then the phone cut off. Since there’s no Helen in the office, we figured he must have said “Hello” or “Help.” Either way we were bored so went to go check it out because we’d heard great things about Mr. Boddy’s billiard room.

10:15 p.m. - We arrive at the mansion. It is only one floor and has no roof, which seems strange but, hey, who are we to knock mansion construction?

10:20 p.m. - We knock on the door. It was answered by a Professor Plum. Inside stood five other people. All of them had names that had to do with some sort of color, except Mrs. Peacock, who was simply a Jew.

10:30 p.m - The group led us to the lounge, where, laying on the sofa, was the body of Boddy. It was dark so we couldn’t tell how he died. Boddy’s body had obviously been moved as well. So we needed to figure out who killed the guy, in what room, and with what weapon. It may take all night. Good thing we brought a sack of cheeseburgers.
