Gone Fishing

It's curtains for the Free World!

Maxwell Smart, Agent 86 from CONTROL...is an ex-spy. Don Adams has ceased to be.

I am sad. I am the hugest Get Smart nerd.

I was just talking about that show last week, specifically, the classic: "Great idea, Max!"

Which went like this...
99: "Oh, I know! Why don't we try [complicated plan idea]?
Max: "Oh, 99, that'll never work. Hey!"
99: "What Max?"
Max: "I just had a great idea! Why don't we try [same plan 99 just thought of]?"
99: "Great idea, Max!"

I do this with Dave a lot, actually.

And because of that show, I will always distinguish American Indians from India Indians by calling them "Whoo-Whoo Indians," from the classic episode:

"We're being attacked by the Indians!"
"That's impossible. India is a neutral country."
"Not THOSE Indians. Whoo-Whoo Indians [with flat-of-hand-patting-O-mouth gesture]!"

Damn. Sorry about that, Chief.
