Tough week for humor on the planet. Soupy Sales and Captain Lou Albano left us. Both may have been acquired tastes (especially Capt. Lou). Many of you probably know him from his appearance in the Cindi Lauper video. Here's a wiki page about the Captain (who for a while managed one of the world's best rock n' roll bands, NRBQ). Peter just mentioned Capt. Lou in his blog post as well (A View from the Unabridged...check it out below).
As for Soupy, well, if you're not old enough to remember his show, here's a brief clip. Silly you say??? Of course it was.
Tell me that's not funny. We'll miss you both.
