17. What are you now, my dad?
He was watching the Comic Relief thing on HBO and in the span of 3 minutes:

1. Yelled that Stephen Colbert is an idiot

2. Laughed uproariously at Billy Crystal.

Billy. Fucking. Crystal.

He also laughed at D.L. Hughley but that doesn't cancel out 1. and 2.

25. That would be totally weird if I was your dad.
Especially since I'm unshakably certain I wasn't sexually active when I was 8.

19. Hellellells NO you didn't go with Shields and Yarnell.
Going to the Clinkers my ass.

I think I got some unbeknownst contact highs when I was 8 to like this show.

Couldn't be worse than THIS:

26. Geoff was the King of all Game Show Hosts. How could they say NO to the man who led Treasure Hunt??
Is it just me, or do Pink Lady look like Shields and Yarnell in that photo?

31. I've made a horrible mistake.
Geoff Edwards wasn't the host of the Pink Lady show, it was Jeff Altman. Please go easy on me, I was only 10! :cry:

As to your excellent point, I suspect Pink Lady WERE Sheilds and Yarnell, who, at the dawn of the '80s, realized the jig was probably up for them, so they created J-Pop alter-egos to keep their careers from waning. They failed.
