Some of the anthems we'll hear on the next show are "O Canada" from Canada, "Jana Gana Mana" from India, "Meda Dau Doka" from Fiji, "Patria Amada" from Mozambique and "God Save the Queen" from the United Kingdom! Ernie, I think your show is very good but you do create some confusion by calling it "The Country Music Awards."

Caption: I wish I could go back in time and tell myself it's not too late. When I was nine, momma asked me if I wanted guitar lessons. But I told her no, because I thought I was too old. Clyde had been playing guitar since he was three. At nine, I thought I had already missed my chance. If I'd started learning when I was nine, I'd have been playing for decades now. I'd be a master at it by now. Well why don't you take some lessons now? Are you kidding? At my age?

Caption: Hello and welcome to the three block wrap-up. Today in playground news, two boys made complete fools of themselves … I Witness News. They were playing on a seesaw when their idea of a pretty girl walked by … One of them offered her his seat, causing a rapid descent for the other. The second one then claimed not to be hurt at all, and insisted that she take his seat ... While they were arguing over whose seat she should take, she learned how dangerously stupid they were, and was able to slip away to safety ... Yes, occasionally a journalist becomes part of the story she's reporting on ...

Caption: Tyrone, I think the key to being happy is to consider oneself part of a play written by another. Oh, I do. I once glanced offstage, Rosencrantz. There, in the shadows cast by the red velvet curtains, lurked a little weasel of a man, frantically muttering and scribbling upon a tattered notepad. He was the writer, Rosencrantz. And he was making it all up as he went along. As I said, the key to being happy is to never glance offstage. I looked again years later, and he was asleep. Spare change?

She climbs as effortlessly as a balloon, an ability going back to her early childhood � The family of leopards, which adopted her at birth, gave her considerable skill at climbing trees. But these towers of stone, worn smooth by time, are quite another matter ... This is when those summer vacations with the mountain-goat herd come in handy ...

Caption: I'd like to announce the debut of my new manual: "Randy's Guide for Raising an Alpha Child." I'd like to, but I can't. You see, in recent years we've replaced concrete and dirt playgrounds with bouncy rubber. And we've started arresting parents who let their kids explore the world by playing outside on their own. Somehow, it's become illegal to raise an alpha child.

Ethel - Di you just hear a piercing yet haunting animal-like shriek? Guess she's not allowed to talk to strangers. Having subdued the natives, she-girl moves on to the cottage cheese aisle ...

Caption: Remember how when we were kids, we'd be out playing for hours, by ourselves? Remember that construction site across the street? I used to hide behind the mounds of dirt and pretend I was Luke Skywalker hiding from sandpeople. I used to climb on the bulldozer and pretend it was an Imperial Walker. I still think you should let your little boy have a little more freedom. And let him get crushed by bulldozers? Are you insane?

Every week I get together with fellow WWII and Korean War Vets, and we play poker, watch "Three Stooges" movie reels ... plot to retake government from the younger stupider generations ... There was a whole lot of stupidity in your generation's leaders too, Mort. Yes ... but our stupidity was a lot classier.

Caption: Glapptpl. Thanks, Biff, for that sports wrap-up. And in local news, a tragic update�mmmmllmnml. We reported earlier on some stupid boy who caught a lizard. They tried to feed it grass, but lizards eat bugs. They were so stupid, they didn't even know to punch holes in the lid until this reporter informed them. The lizard died earlier today. Although the police were informed by an anonymous source, they have so far refused to take action against the boys...Mnrmn.
