THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS




MY FAVORITE JOKE:
Poachers in Africa opened a restaurant.  Their come on was: “We make sandwiches from ANY African animal!  If we can’t make your sandwich, we’ll pay you $10,000.00!!”  

Business was booming for months.  They sold sandwiches made of ground zebra, lion pot roast, leg of hippo, etc.
  
One day the waiter tries unsuccessfully to place an order with the cook.  Together, they sadly go to the manager & tell him that he’s going to have to pay the $10,000.00.  He asks why & they tell him that a customer just ordered an elephant ball sandwich on rye.  

He tells them that’s no problem—a new shipment of elephant balls just came in.  The cook says, “I know that!  The problem is, we’re out of rye bread!!”

MY FAVORITE COMEDIAN:
George Carlin.

MY FAVORITE SONG:
I can't choose between these two.
This is "our song":

But I think the lyrics in this one are brilliant
& I love Simon & Garfunkel:

MY FAVORITE DOG:
When our daughter & son-in-law were first married, they lived in one of three small houses that we bought for rental.  Bob, who worked in Bud’s office, lived next door.  Bob had found a box containing a litter of puppies that someone had abandoned on the street.  He gave one (“Fio”, short for “Fiorina”, little flower in Italian)) to them & found other homes for the rest.  Our son-in-law was complaining that almost everything they owned once belonged to Bob.  He said, “We have Bob’s dishes, Bob’s sofa, Bob’s table…” & then he looked at Fio & said, 
“Come here, Bob’s dog!”

When Fio was about 10 weeks old, my son Matt came to visit them.  He asked his sister why she got a puppy when they were so messy & caused so much extra work.  He sat down & put Fio on his lap.  She nuzzled his crotch non-stop.  He got a blissful look on his face & said, “Where can I get one of these?”

THE FAVORITE THING I EVER DID:
I took a flight in zero gravity, like the astronauts.

MY FAVORITE MUSICAL
Again, I have two favorites:

This is the full 102 minute soundtrack of Phantom of the Opera:


MY FAVORITE FOOD:
In general (not withstanding MY FAVORITE RESTAURANT below)
I'd have to say pork.

My friend, Barbara, & I both love pork.  Early one evening Bud & I were driving from L.A. to our beach condo & stopped for an early dinner.  Barb lives across the street from us at the beach & we decided to surprise her.  I had a rib dinner & we bought another one to bring to her.  Bud was downstairs with the takeout box & I went upstairs to talk to Barbara.  She had no idea we had food—or anything—for her.  I asked her what would be the greatest gift one human being could give another & she said, “PORK!”   Bud was just coming up the stairs.  He said, “Right!” & handed it to her.

MY FAVORITE RESTAURANT:
Without a doubt, Ruth's Chris in Beverly Hills,
where they have the best steaks I have ever eaten.
My favorite dish, however, came from a different restaurant'
Le Tour d'Argent in Paris:

I was trying to describe a dish I had eaten there (I can't remember what it was now) to my sister-in-law.  It was the best thing I had ever eaten!  I asked, “Nat, have you ever had an orgasm over food?”  Her response was, “Is there any other way?”
