. fAVORITE jokes BITOrS NOTE: When asked why he went into show, business, Mike Pfeminger said: "I got into show business watching movies. Years ago / saw the movie Rhapsody in Blue, about George Gershwin. It started at 8:30 and between 8:30 and 9 Gershwin wrote Rhapsody in Blue, Concerto in F, and Porgy and Bess, /thought, that's terrific; if its that easy, I'm going into show business." Preminger's -comedy, which he writes himself, is sharp, satiric, and in touch with the current foibles -which is a contradiction, since he calls himself "The Turtle of Comedians." He says, "I talk slow, I walk slow, I don't like to make decisions. I was even bom on my . mower's Way home from the hospital. When I was a kid I had a younger brother-- -he's older than me now!" Preminger, who will be seen luly 26 on NBC-TV's Weekend show, has appeared on TV's Dean Martin's Corpedy World, The Tonight Show and at top dubs, including, Mister Kelly 1 s Chicago; Bijou, Philadelphia, and the Playboy circuit Here are some of his observations: . ' _ ; ; . ; I've been reading a lot of books on self-improvement lately, books that tell you how you can be your own .best friend. The first time I went to buy one -the guy in ' the store looked at me funny when I said: "I want a book that tells me how I can be my best friend." "If s not for you," he said. /· Actually, I think it would be great to be your own best friend. If you get theater tickets you know who you're going to take. ····-'· ' · My father always felt that everyone should dress well. 1 would be going out and he'd say, "Put on a tie." "But I'm only going to throw out. the garbage." "Well," he'd say, "you never know who you're going to meet!" · Animals have a good social life. They don't have to phone for dates. They don't play sports, except for horse- racing/ because they don't have fingers to choose up sides, and they can't flip a coin because they have no change purse. Take dogs-you never heard one dog bark at another and say: "What sign are you?" ous . for your salads. Th.

CASH VAUICirtt* CENT General Mills T49 I was not a bad ball player when I was a kid, but I wasn't great. They used to choose up sides in baseball and make me official right fielder--and then they'd play no hitting to right. · I went to a high school which was all boys--6000 guys, age 13 to 34, most of them superseniors--a really big sports school. As a matter of fact, you had to be 6 foot 3 to be on the chess team. I played football for awhile because it was much safer in the field than in the stands. . : ' ' · I don't like nostalgia. Ev- erytime you turn on the TV they're playing old records. Now they have the greatest songs from World War II. They also have great moments in history. You can hear that famous script about the Hindenburg: "It's about to go." Then the announcer says, "My God, it burst into flames," you hear the hysteria in the background and then they cut and another announcer's voice says: 'That. was one of the great moments in history!" ·' " · · ' · · ' .Someone, a politician, I believe, actually said: "I'm really nostalgic about the future." ' · ' ' · : · : . ' · ' ' - ' I will not pay money to see people perform '50's records, but if Julius Caesar came back alive--now that's nostalgia! - · This all leads back to a theory I have which is-there's always a yesterday. I may not be nostalgic but I am slow. I have an ancestor who left Spain with Columbus. He'll be here next week. 'We want to get away from each other/' 13
