No! Refresh my memory please.
Tsk tsk... are you old enough to have seen the original HONEYMOONERS TV show, with Jackie Gleason, Art Carney, Audrey Meadows and Joyce Randolph? Ralph Kramden (Gleason) was a bus driver, and Alice (Meadows) his wife. Whenever Ralph would get angry about something (very often his wife's teasing him about his weight - Gleason being a very fat actor), Ralph's reaction would be "One of these days Alice, one of these days... POW! (or BANG, or ZOOM) right to the moon!!"This was, of course, in the "good old bad old" days when spousal abuse was something to be made fun of, and not an item of abhorrence as it is in these overly-sensitive times.
This reminds me of Art Carney's rendition of "I sing this song about the sewer". As an environmental engineer, this song resonates with some of my work. It was always hilarious to hear it done so well. Does anyone have the full lyrics?
