Connie from Durham


My Couchsurfing hosts in Houston had a couple of Redneck Joke books, and I stumbled into this joke while skimming.  The choice of Durham, NC as the punchline town surprises me on several counts.  But I had to laugh, especially since I have a Durham friend named Connie.

Did you see "The Big Bang Theory" this week? The guys were trying to find the home of the models in the "America's Next Top Model" TV show. They narrowed it down to a three square mile patch of the Hollywood Hills, or somewhere in Durham, North Carolina.

Didn't see it, though I did enjoy the couple of episodes that I watched. I'm delighted that a sitcom about PhD physicists would air at all, never mind for two seasons, and never mind mentioning Durham NC.

I'm also proud of noticing that the two guys are named after TV producer Sheldon Leonard (who, I just read, played Nick the bartender in It's A Wonderful Life).

No such thing as coincidence, Phil. ;-) Just a reminder.
