Actual Letters to Mike Durrett
I never know what to expect from my fellow classic showbiz loon and friend, the super hip Astroray, man of few words and many gems. He sent along this 1966 advertisement, accompanied by only a half dozen syllables in the Subject line:

Really? A million laughs?

Yeah, I wanna tell ya, easily a million laughs. It was sumpum. WILD. Grrr-RRROWLL!

I've always been thrilled to know that, during the 1950s and '60s, Bob Hope and Jerry Lewis worked at DC Comics, alongside Batman, Robin, Superman, Wonder Woman, and some of the world's most celebrated fetishists. I've often imagined the lunches in the commissary.

The introduction of the wacky Universal monsters knock-offs, a mere EIGHTEEN years after "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein" and at the tail-end of "The Munsters" run, scored with the cats, adding at least 750,000 timely chortles. GO-GO-GO!

And Bob in a Beatles wig! That's comedy gold -- or, as it appears, comedy bleach!
