An associate producer is the only guy in Hollywood who will associate with a producer.”   —   Fred Allen

(Fred was a very funny and quotable guy.  He died shortly before I was even thought of, but I’ve always enjoyed his quotes.  He’s becoming a staple of the Cryptoquote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Hanging is too good for a man who makes puns; he should be drawn and quoted.”   —   Fred Allen

(For a few seconds, I was getting a little angry with old Fred!  But, by the time I was finished, I was smiling.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

He dreamed he was eating Shredded Wheat and woke to find the mattress half gone.”   —   Fred Allen

(NOT a simple solve!  But, it kind of seems familiar.  Almost like we’ve had this one before.  Maybe I just saw it one time when I was looking up other humorous Fred Allen quotes?  I don’t know.  But, cereals like Shredded Wheat, and plain old Cheerios, are pretty bland.  I always preferred Rice Krispies, Puffed Wheat, Corn Flakes, and Raisin Bran.  Even without sugar, they seemed to have a little more flavor.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The last time I saw him he was walking down lover’s lane holding his own hand.”   —   Fred Allen

(Donald Trump???  I wonder who in the ’30s, ’40s, or ’50s he was talking about?  Possibly it was about Jack Benny.  They were fellow comedians and good friends, but they had a long running mock feud.  It made for some great lines.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(It’s hardly an exclusive club!  There seems to be so few of us who really qualify as humane humans.  Too many seem to embrace the more brutal, bestial side of being a human.  While too many others are these cold elitists, who refuse to acknowledge that we too are part of the animal kingdom.  All of us would do well to act as more gentle creatures of this big beautiful world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Her hat is a creation that will never go out of style.  It will look just as ridiculous year after year.”   —   Fred Allen

(Very funny, Fred!  I’m sure that – today – somebody could find a reason to take offense to this quip, but . . . too bad.  Life is short.  All PC and no play makes Fred a dull boy!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

He dreamed he was eating shredded wheat and woke up to find the mattress half gone.”   —   Fred Allen

(This puzzle was tough, too!  I suspected the Z was the E, but I couldn’t rule out the K.  I had to look at the author to confirm my inclination.  That’s always the last resort for me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I like long walks, especially when they are done by people who annoy me.”   —   Fred Allen

(Classic Fred Allen!  Fred was kind of the Jon Stewart of the Golden Age of Radio.  Very intelligent and very funny.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A conference is a gathering of important people who decide that nothing can be done.”   —   Fred Allen

(When you are not expected to contribute to the conference, then it’s a great time to get caught up on your sleep!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

He writes so well, he makes me feel like putting my quill back in my goose.”   —   Fred Allen

(I suspected the Q was the E, and the E was the L early on, which led me to the author being Fred Allen.  But still, this was not an easy solve.  Such a funny little quote though, from someone from the 20th Century!  Some versions of the quote replace the “my”s with “the”s.  The “my”s give it kind of a risque ring to it.  Fred Allen was a great radio comedian.  He sometimes would dress to look the fool, but he was actually quite intelligent..  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
