    Red Skelton

    Those were the days when you could watch and listen to Comedians with your children.

    Most Comedians now tell jokes that have sexual themes or innuendo and obscene language is almost essential in their routines.

    Its said that if you have had a communicable disease and recovered, you become to immune to it and exposure to it again will not make you sick.

    So it is with the type of humor in this "Anything goes world" that anything that "Cranks your engine" is acceptable conduct, even in mixed company that was once a No! No! and even laughed at by otherwise prim and proper persons.Most people in this world have peccadilloes and can think to themselves "Seen that, Heard that, Done that" and are no longer shocked by what they hear or see.

    Yes, I certainly agree Wuzfuz! That being said, there are parental controls that one can now implement both on the Internet and TV. Not sure how these work but my ds uses these for his children - to keep certain things from being viewed by prying little eyes & ears.

    I grew up watching his shows. They were great. He conveyed the image of a, kind gentle person.
