Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Dr. Allan Pearl: I think I got a, a, an entertaining bug... from my grandfather... uh, Chaim Pearlgut, who was very very big in the, um, Yiddish, uh, theater, back in New York. He was in the, the very... the sardonically irreverent... "Dybbuk Shmybbuk, I Said 'More Ham'"... and that revue I believe was 1914, and that revue was what made him famous. Incidentally, the song "Bubbe Made A Kishke" came from that revue. 

Happy 69, Eugene Levy! I can't wait for the second season of Schitt's Creek to start. (By the way the whole first season of Schitts is on Amazon so if you haven't watched it yet DO, it is so wonderful.) EW says the show is back on March 16th but that's in the US; it might be sooner in Canada? Which is how I caught the first season. You know. By flying to Canada. Every week. Just to watch the show. Mmhmm.

I too enjoyed Schitt's Creek immensely. Cant wait for season 2. Eugene and Catherine are ridiculously great in it.

One of so many many sublime lines from Guffman.

Also partial to:

"Burgers, french fries, can drive right up and get a Coke if you're thirsty."
