Weekly Poll - 3/3

Happy Monday everyone! Thank you to everyone who voted in last weeks poll as we learned that overwhelmingly the readers of this blog prefer the Grammy's as their favorite awards show. (I still want to know who voted for the Tony's)

This weeks poll comes to us as a suggestion from my buddy the Mt. Cat. He wants to poll who you think is/was the funniest television neighbor? There are several choices up there to pick from and of course feel free to discuss your choice as well. I bet we missed a few in the poll so let us know.

HAD to vote for Cosmo but would like to give a nod to Three's Company's the Ropers and the Furleys also Dwayne F. Schneider from One Day at a Time.

Doc said...

Kramer is going to dominate this poll...

Lulita said...

That is so true. It's to bad Michael Richards wont be dominating anythng for awhile but the unemployment line.

Leighann said...

Am I the only person on the planet who thinks Seinfeld was lame?

Doc said...

Yes

Lulita said...

YES

As American as Apple Pie said...

Leighann--I'm with you. I can't stand to watch more than 5 mins of Seinfeld.

I voted other b/c I would like to nominate "Ugly Naked Guy" from Friends. He was great for comedic observations.

Leighann said...

I think we should be able to vote for more than one choice fellas!

The only thing I ever liked that came out of Seinfeld was when Elaine would dance.

She (mixed with Mick Jagger) reminds me of my oldest daughter trying to dance. BAHAHAHA!

MTCAT
there wasnt a scene that Ed Norton didnt steal... Remember he was working side by side with Jackie Gleason....and he usually made HIM look like a straight man...I think your bloggers are probably alittle young to appreciate the more primitive style of humor that seemed to be so natural and uncontrived...He was the protoyype of the funniest neighbor concept, and he should be celebrated....

Leighann said...

I voted for Ed Norton! One of my favorite characters of all time!

The Mountain Cat said...

Hi y'all,

Well I want to see if it is a close vote. I know Michael Richards' real life antics may have lost him some fans. But I am amazed at how many New Yorkers don't care for Seinfeld. I figured Ned Flanders will get a lot of votes too. And Pat I agree, Art Carney was brilliant.

Lulita said...

Art Carney's acting ability was superb not just his comedic genius. I still get bigger laughs from Cosmo.

The Mountain Cat said...

'First Norton, you have to address the ball.'
'Hellloooo ball.'

The Mountain Cat said...

I thought Art Carney was great in the movie Fight Club. He was brilliant in Primal Fear too.

Jay said...

I never got into Seinfeld either. Of course I worked nights throughout the 90s so I never got to see it. But, I've tried to watch it and even though it is funny I don't watch it all the time.

I voted for the Jeffersons. George Jefferson was a riot!

The Mountain Cat said...

I vote for North Korea in M*A*S*H*
Those were some wacky next door neighbors weren't they??

Christine said...

No one for Fred and Ethel?

The Mountain Cat said...

What about Barney and Betty Ruble?!?!? I knew I forgot someone! oh well.

Christine said...

The Rubles were a couple of whiners, no? They annoyed me.

Christine said...

Sorry - I tried to import a photo of myself but I don't think this one is the right format. I'm much bigger in real life!

Lulita said...

Holy Crap how about Frank and Marie Barone?

The Mountain Cat said...

Yeah the Rubles brought down the house values in Bedrock.

Christine said...

What about Tony and Carmela? Ehh, Ehh..

The Mountain Cat said...

Christine, Or the Greek Dry Cleaners we lived next store to growing up in Bay Ridge??

Christine said...

Ha, ha...that is so funny! I forgot about those people. Do you remember their names?

But we had a lot of crazies in the neighborhood. To name a few:
1. Shell Shocked Tony
2. Red Face
3. Stevie (who would moon everyone!)
4. The man that looked like his Afghan dog!
5. That busty woman from the building on Narrows Ave - Shirley or Sally? Pat, what was her name?

The Mountain Cat said...

Christine, what about the Turkish family that slaughtered the lamb in their garage on Easter next to Aunt Ann's house?? Pat do you remember their names? That was sick!

Doc said...

That busty woman from the building on Narrows Ave - Did ya'll call her Busty Narrows??

The Mountain Cat said...

It was Shirley.
She deflowered me *sigh* LOL

Jahooni said...

wasn't there a neighbor guy that used to peak his head over the fence in the back yard?
shoot, what was that show?

The Mountain Cat said...

Jahoooooni, Yes Wilson from Home Improvement! Thanks. He was another great neighbor.

Bunkie said...

From that list, I'd definitely pick Ed Norton. But I'm also kinda partial to Lenny & Squiggy from Laverne & Shirley. Or better yet, THE FONZ!!!!!!!

The Mountain Cat said...

Bunkie, How've you been?
The Fonz didn't live next door to the Cunningham's did he? Wait he lived above the garage?? I don't quite remember.

Bunkie said...

Hi Mt. Cat. It's cold here in CT, and I'm just waiting for Spring to get here so my cold will go away. How's the city?

Fonzie lived over the garage or in an attic room, I think. But he'd make an awesome neighbor.

The Mountain Cat said...

Bunkie, The city was great today. Almost 60 degrees!

Betty said...

Who voted for the Tonys? That would be me. Wanna make somethin' of it?
