Oh my gosh, that actually looks pretty funny, Rob! (John Wayne & Maureen O'Hara's characters are hilarious!).
I always get a bee in my bonnet to watch some Little House episodes on this day too. The one where Nels is smitten with Molly, the Irish Innkeeper, and the one with Amy Hearn. It's just too early for me to come up with the titles.

There once was a lady named Bright whose speed was much faster than light. She set out one day in a relative way, and returned on the previous night.
A tutor who tooted a flute tried to teach two young tooters to toot. Said the two to the tutor "Is it harder to toot, or... to tutor two tooters to toot?"
