It’s my opinion that Don Knotts, who played Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith Show and Ralph Furley on Three’s Company (not to mention hundreds of other roles in movies and on TV), is the funniest man God ever put on Earth. We’ve been watching reruns of Andy every weeknight, and despite the shows being over 50 years old and the fact that we’ve seen them hundreds of times before, they’re still hilarious, and Knotts’ “Barney” is a huge reason for that. Here’s a montage of him using one of his favorite catchphrases…

Joe, my father-in-law, was not a very educated man, at least not as far as going to school. I think he told me that he dropped out of school after his freshman year of high school. But, as far as I’m concerned, he was a genius. When he wanted to learn something, he read up on it and taught himself. He could do financial calculations that almost none of the finance majors I knew could do, so when one of the banks or savings and loans in the neighborhood was offering a better interest rate, he would figure out how much he could take out of which bank account and deposit with the bank giving a better interest rate. He was always looking for good deals, which meant he had a good stock of soap, paper towels, and toilet paper. The best piece of advice he ever gave Mary and me was “ya gotta work the angles.”
Ever since then, any time Mary and I figure out a way to take advantage of a good deal, we picture him sitting in heaven, smiling down on us. We worked the angles.

I feel badly for those of you that are currently sitting in the deepfreeze. This was one of the reasons I moved South, to avoid this. It gets cold here, but nothing like the “get up in the middle of the night to make sure your car will start” cold I experienced in all those years traveling in the Midwest. And there’s none of this shoveling snow here: we just wait until it melts.

Yes, this was childhood, ’60’s style.
I was going through some old entries and found this post from almost five years ago, which I wrote a few years ago and expressed my opinion on the TV show Seinfeld.
As I said then, we welcome replies to our editorials.
