Get Out of the City

Augusto Pinochet died on Sunday. Apparently he is a character that creates a very divided opinion among the masses. To some a ruthless dictator who murdered and tortured thousands of people in a coup d'etat. To others a figure who ushered in unparalleled economic success and politic freedoms in South America. I actually have no idea, I'm not too up on my world politics. I just enjoy his name because it reminds of Bronson Pinchot. You may know him better as the lovable Balki Bartokomous on tv's Perfect Strangers.

I wonder what Cousin Larry is up to these days.

You can bet Balki REALLY loved the goats that he shepherded before moving in with Cousin Larry.
I mean REALLY liked. A LOT!
Oh, and he probably ordered lubricant in bulk.

I miss Perfect Strangers - loved the physical comedy, even though at times it was a little cheesie.

Pinchot also was in some Laurel and Hardy remake ... I watched it just because I enjoyed the original Laurel and Hardy ... however the remake was god-awful.
