False, it wasn’t very passionate at all. Just kidding, no messing around with Busey.

True. We have a Honda Odyssey minivan for my wife and the kids, and I have a Chevy Malibu to get to and from work.

True. Just now heard it and like it. Like the “rollin and tumbling”as it refers to one of my favorite songs.

Next person sneers at the resurgence of vinyl records because 8-tracks are low priority.

Hmmm. False - soldier (two different kinds), hobo, Sandman, James T. Kirk, and others... but never a Universal monster.

No, fortunately, that's never been an issue (Have you seen this kids' book?: https://www.amazon.com/Walter-Fartin...he+farting+dog). My eldest son's burping, though....

TNP has a child who burps an awful lot.

False. We only go on vacation once every couple of years or so, and I'm always ready to gafiate. (SciFi/Fantasy Convention slang for "Getting Away From It All".)

False. While I do love Statler & Waldorf, I'm a fan of Kermit the Frog ever since I was a tadpole watching him on the Today Show.

False. I yelled at Danny Devito once in Vegas but alas, he didn't hear me (or more likely, pretended to ignore me. Asshole). He is even shorter and rounder in real life than in the movies tho. At least he was 13 years ago when I saw him.

TNP has no idea who Danny Devito is.

Possibly true. I saw Ed Asner in the restroom of the Cleveland Play House when he was appearing in a production of Born Yesterday. As I recall, we nodded to each other, but no words were exchanged.

I have spoken to Jay Leno during/after a couple of his performances, but although he has acting credits, he's certainly known primarily as a comic and talk show host.

The next poster has been to at least one of the Smithsonian museums.
