Don't Understand It


Recommended Posts

In reflection, I concluded that Lone Ranger and Tonto had to have had a lot of down time. So, the question is why didn't TLR spend some of that time learnin' Tonto better grammar?

Maybe Tonto should have spent some time learnin' TLR to speak Tonto's native language.

As a nonsequitor aside, the name of the actor who portrayed Tonto, while billed as Jay Silverheels, was actually Harold J. Smith -- and you can look it up!

Well, since I don't do ADP testing anymore I had time to look this up. Sure enough, Jay Silverheels birth name was Harold J. Smith. You're a real fan if you remember (not look up) the name of Tonto's horse.

Scout I think I remember.

Good try. However, Scout was the offspring of the stallion Mendel and mare Hadassah. Scout's given name was Menachin. Surprisingly, the name didn't play well except in the shtetl so producers changed named to Scout (derived from Menachin having once horsed around on Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts). And you can look this up provided you can find somewhere to look it up.

Smith = Silverheels. Well, Kirk Douglas's birth name was Issur Danielovitch.

And Aaron Chwatt was who? (Ho, Ho. Ho, Ho. Hee, Hee. Hee Hee. Ha, Ha. Ha, Ha)

With respect to my favorite comic strip of all time.

Wow! Even in those thrilling days of yesteryear, employers treated their employees like, ahhhhhhhhhhh, horses's assess.
