I was getting gas the other day, when someone in a car next to me turned his head in an odd way, which made me think of an old Meat Cake comic, which made me think of the time Dame Darcy was on Blind Date, which made me wonder, “What is Roger Lodge up to these days?” (This is all a totally normal thought process.) The fact that I was able to get my idle curiosity satisfied in a matter of seconds is truly the greatest gift the Internet has given us. What a time to be alive.
Obviously that inspired me to keep digging for lost treasures. Every few years I’ve tried in vain to find a clip of what I believe to be the second greatest moment in television history. After so many fruitless searches I was starting to think I’d imagined it, but this time around I was finally able to find video evidence of Peter DeLuise learning to say “lasagna” in Spanish, and it was as glorious as I remembered. The magic happens at 7:43.
Now all I need is a lasagna/not great, Bob mashup and I will know true happiness.
I’ve come to expect to be able to find absolutely anything with relative ease, but there’s one thing I’ve never found any evidence of, and it’s slowly driving me insane. I don’t know if it was a commercial or a show or just some random tv special or what, but I remember this guy, he looks like Dick Cavett but I don’t think it was Dick Cavett, and he’s talking about being in some kind of capsule or something for an hour and then he says, “When I return, I’m an hour older, but the baby is now an old man.” WHAT IS THIS FROM??? I feel like I saw this so many times, but apparently was only paying attention at that one point, because I have no idea wtf happened, but there were dramatic baby—>old man photos accompanying this statement, and it scared the heck out of me when I was a kid. I didn’t know how this guy managed to miss a lifetime in an hour, but I knew I didn’t want to accidentally end up doing it too. Talk about FOMO!
Anybody remember this? Please don’t make me go on reddit. That’s one rabbit hole I’ll never find my way out of.
