Really bad joke from the latest Reader's Digest
« on: September 19, 2011, 06:57:07 AM »
When my girlfriend said she was breaking up with me because of my obsession with The Monkees, I thought she was joking.



...And then I saw her face...

I think I must be dense this morning, because I don't understand the joke.  Help!   :-[

Me too. I was ready to be upset at the poor taste. OP, you might consider taking the date out of the thread title because I think people are going to have the wrong idea about what it is about, and might avoid it all together.

I had to send this to my sister.

Several years ago, she and her husband went to a live peformance of a musical at the Theater Under the Stars in Houston - she "recognized" the voice and checked the name in the program.  She exclaimed to her husband that she recognized him (the singer/actor) from when he was a Monkee.  Her husband is younger..........he didn't know what she was talking about so she got an odd look............she had to look him up on the internet when she got home to show him the TV show/singing group listing on the guy's IMBD..........

But now I can't remember which Monkee it was.............probably not Nesmith (inherited the Liquid Paper fortune) or Davy Jones - but I can't remember which of the other two she said the guy was...........

Peter was always my favorite - I was a nerd girl before it was cool.  I digs me some Michael, though; he was always so droll 

(they showed reruns on TVLand in the '80s)

Peter Tork sounds right..............she told me the story but all I remembered was "not Davy Jones" and "not the Liquid Paper heir"..............

She also mentioned that he did a really, really good job of singing the villian................
