Fridays With ...

We all make promises to our dying parents that just don't get carried out. Heck, I promised my dad that he would have a funeral that reflected his ambivalence about the Christian faith. Instead he got an old-fashioned tent revival that would have put William Jennings Bryan in a blissful mood.

Although I love Keith Olbermann, I can't quite get over his decision to sit in an armchair every Friday night and read aloud from James Thurber for upwards of ten minutes. Therefore, in the honor of blossoming egos everywhere, we at "The Gods Are Bored" are inaugurating a new series. We call it "Fridays With ..."

Off we go!

Wasn't Humphrey Bogart the first Gerber ad baby? Is that him?

I don't think so. I think the artist used a neighbor's child or some such, but the baby isn't an actual representation of any individual. Cute baby, though.

Late to the party as always. Anne, I got your pun and giggled at it right away. I had to check the Bogart reference, because I am a party pooper like that, and it isn't him:
