"Turned down the role of Gilligan on Gilligan's Island (1964) because he thought it was "the worst thing" he had ever read."

I saw him live once when he did the warmup for Shirley Bassey in San Mateo. One of the funniest acts I ever saw.

1. He brought a tall stool out to the stage.

2. He brought a smaller stool out.

3. He brought out a small stuffed donkey and placed it on the taller stool.

4. He waited a few minutes until he came out wearing a huge Styrofoam western hat, I mean really huge, it was almost the size of a coffee table. And he sat down on the smaller stool behind the little donkey. And he brought out a pencil with a piece of string on it.

5. The music started. Now, most of you have never heard of 'Mule Train by Frankie Lane'.

I lost YouTube in my crash the other night and it is one I'm having trouble with and I cn't deal with it tonight.

If you can, pull up the Song do so.

Jerry added something to the song, a whip crack.

Now every time you hear Lane holler, 'hahhgh yahgh'.
imagine Jerry hitting that little mule with hi whip imagine the sound of the whip cracking.

Dosen't do well in print but the audience totally lost it. It was so funny.

he seems to have recreated it to some degree on a TV show

if by 'lost Youtube' you meant you had an icon on your desktop, this is one way to get it back:

1) right-click on empty space on your desktop

2) choose 'New -> Shortcut' from the menu that comes up

3) type or copy/paste the following into the text box:

4) then click [Next] or whatever & follow any further instructions like giving it a name

stupid dud, What part of *crash* do you not understand?

I was able to retrieve my major files but not YouTube, yet. I haven't had time to replace all of my bookmarks and lesser files yet. I'm working on it, just haven't got to everything yet.

Of course if I was a stupid dud I could just snap my fingers and shout, *Hillary Clinton is the most beautiful woman in the world*. And, everything would be instantly restored.

One of my favorite bits he did was on the Dick Van Dyke show when he performed great asleep but wasn't worth a damn awake.

He appears to understand computers and the internet far better than you.

Much better than you no doubt, but he is still a moron for sure.

Damn pedowoo, It is not a three dimensional item that can be picked up and moved, or lost.

Maybe you should take computer lessons from stupid dud.

Now, if you will forgive me, I'm going to leave this thread for those who would like to express their condolences.

It's pretty obvious you're the only person in this thread that has no fucking idea how these things work.
