(Happy Easter and Happy Passover to all who celebrate this season of rebirth.  The fun continues this Tuesday, with the observance of Earth Day.  No matter what faith you subscribe to, or don’t, we all inhabit this one world.  It’s all our responsibility to preserve/restore and protect it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When The Big Show premiered November 5, 1950, this ad, showing NBC’s full evening schedule, ran in Sunday newspapers across the country. Here’s how it looked in the Kingsport Times-News (Kingsport, Tennessee).

(I think someone was a little too lazy to come up with a new cryptoquote, and figured no one would catch this re-run as a Sunday Cryptoquote.  WRONG!  Yer Uncle and the faithful catch these kind of things!  Oh, well.  What are ya gonna do?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PSThis (top picture) was a different kind of Big Show!  Also, not to be confused with Paul Wight.   —   YUR

(I don’t know if this happened in every newspaper that carries the Sunday Cryptoquote, or just selected ones, like mine, but this is clearly a repeat of one from a couple of days ago.  The fun thing is that it took me about half-way through solving it before I realized it!  Whadayagonnado?  Please let me know if this happened in other newspapers than The Journal News.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/20/10

An advertising agency is eighty-five percent confusion and fifteen percent commission.”   — Fred Allen

(Very tough, today!  No “A”, “I” or “THE”.  No “PEOPLE”, “EVER”, “NEVER”, “WHICH” or “THAT”, etc..  This ranks up there as one of the toughest I’ve ever had to solve.  But, as with most Fred Allen quotes, very amusing.) YUR

Hollywood is a place where people from Iowa mistake each other for movie stars.”   — Fred Allen
