Saturday Morning Cartoons!

(Don't) Give Up The Sheep (1953)

This was the first appearance of Sam Sheepdog and Ralph Wolf, although here Sam is named Ralph and Ralph goes unnamed. In this version, just the sheepdog works on the clock. In later versions, both Sam and Ralph clock in and clock out together. They would always greet each other with a courteous co-worker "Mornin' Sam," "Mornin' Ralph." While Ralph Wolf is not Wyle E. Coyote he is clearly related or at least took the same correspondence course from ACME on how to catch prey.

Yesterday, I asked...

"A NYC eatery is offering the world's most expensive dessert at $25,000. It features what?"

20% ordered the "Diamond Dust Sprinkles"
- They probably just use ground up cubic zirconium to save on costs.

10% drooled over "Monet in Marzipan"
- That would only be worth $25,000 if Monet returned from the grave to do them himself.

Everyone skipped "Served on Paris Hilton's boobs"
- Which would really only be worth about ten bucks a boob.

70% got it right with "Edible Gold"

According to the Associated Press, Serendipity 3 is offering a $25,000 dessert bulging with top-grade cocoa, edible gold and shavings of a luxury truffle. Frrrozen Haute Chocolate is served in a goblet with a band of gold decorated with 1 carat of diamonds and served with a golden spoon diners can take home. And when you order it, you also get a video of a crying single mother from Cleveland who is trying to raise three kids on an annual salary less than the cost of your dessert.
