All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


It Happened Here

The local game warden in a small town had arrested a man for killing and eating an egret.

The man went before a judge to plead his case.

After pleading guilty, the judge asked him why he did it.

“I was just trying to feed my hungry family,” he told the judge. “And I’ve never done anything like that before.”

The judge, being a family man himself, had a soft heart and agreed to let the man go free, since it was his first and only offense.

“Before you go, though, I want to ask you a question,” the judge quipped. “What does Egret taste like?”

“Well, your honor,” the man said, “It’s not as tender as Spotted Owl but it’s better than Bald Eagle!”

  2. Coulda been worse, the offender coulda been a Brit with a hard British accent. During sentencing, when the judge asked him if he has any regrets, he could have answered "I have many 'egrets" and been sentenced as a multiple offender.
