Johnny, We Hardly Knew Ye. Ed, We Knew Ye Too Well
Has-been-second-banana Ed McMahon celebrates his 50th year in show business this week. YESSSSSS!!!!!! Here's a faux-Irish toast to the original, boozy yes man:
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May you be in Bali 40 minutes before you are subpoenaed to testify in any of the 53 "mail fraud" class action suits currently filed against American Family Publishers, the Publisher's Clearinghouse "magazine-hawker-to-old-people" that operates out of Newark.
