Can somebody explain this Married With Children joke?


Its befuddled me for decades.

At one point Al says the perfect woman would have 3 breasts, the third one being "On her back, for when you're dancing".

I don't quite get the benefits on having a boob on a back when dancing. If you have her arms around her wouldn't the extra boob just get in the way?

It's so you can grab her boob while your arms are around her back.

Nitpick: while your arm is around her back, hence only the one back there. (Your other hand is holding hers in ballroom dance pose.)

"Grab," indeed!

It's so you can fondle her boob while your arm is around her back.

And you know what the sad thing is?

No one dances slow anymore?

Heh.

It became a different show when Ted McGinly (sp?) joined. He was less of foil for Al, and more of a compatriot. Always remember ... Al made a toothpaste sandwich, Steve actually bit into it. The studio audience loved that bit.
