3. I'm not trying to be a pain

but do I have to be the one that notes that humor featuring musicians from 'Nairobi' dressed in ape outfits is probably best left in the past?

5. I think you read too much into it. Wiki Kovaks. 90% of Americans don't know where ...

Nairobi is. Continent let alone country. Kinda limits its dogwhistle effectiveness if the target audience doesn't get the reference.

Its just silly. It could be in bear suits and called the Anchorage Trio.

I will admit the Percy Dovetails character bothers me a bit.

4. I loved Ernie Kovacs

He did things that nobody else did, and it was such a shame that he died young.

7. Somewhere in my house is an "E.E.F.M.S." membership card, signed by Ernie.

E.E.F.M.S. was Early Eyeball Fraternal and Marching Society.

It was featured on his W.A.B.C. morning radio program, approx 1952.
