As God is my witness....

I thought turkeys could fly!

My very favorite episode of WKRP in Cincinnati was on cable last night.

Until I discovered "Red Dwarf" in the early 90s (British sit-com), "WKRP in Cincinnati" was my favorite sit-com of all-time.

OMG! I was just telling someone about that the other day!

That was one of the best TV series ever. Truly twisted writing.
