Pretty Sure That’s The Skipper From “Gilligan’s Island”


No, of course it’s not. It’s just a nobody in a Kodak ad.

Interesting tidbit: The Skipper’s real character name was Jonas Grumby. I never heard his Little Buddy call him Jonas.

I understand, Skipper. Tiki can be frightening.

    1. I bet maxwell the dog has! I actually do like tiki and Hawaiian themes. I’d like a room with that theme. Have you ever eaten a roast pig, Benson? Like with the apple in its mouth or cooked over a spit or covered in leaves and buried in the ground?

      1. Yep.Actually pig roasts are rather common around here,or at least they used to be.Many years ago some friends and I would get together and put a pig in a pit roast it all night and then eat and drink all the next day. Some bars used to cook a whole pig on a large smoker/grill unit and sell dinners. In El Paso I went to one that was cooked on a spit. Now that one had an apple its mouth. In Belen,New Mex the pig was pit roasted,no fruit. Cerdo es bueno.

    1. Yeah, another “I don’t get it” moment. I thought he was trying to prove Kodak film was so great, that it really looked like him. But that doesn’t make sense either.


  1. That is too funny about the Skipper and the Professor’s characters names. Never knew.
    My mom’s first job was as a soda jerk. She was always very proud of that job. She could make the best fountain drinks. I’m guessing today’s equivalent would be a barista.

  2. Was Mrs. Howell’s real first name Lovey? You can’t leave us hanging on that one now, Kerbey. I’ve been to a tiki bar, when I was in my 20s. There was one around College Park. I think the older you are, the more chance there is a joint tried that theme during your bar-going years. And, I was part of the pig-roasting process for my step daughter’s high school graduation party. The night before, in a big field, her father put the pig up on a spit after we stuffed it with kielbasa for added taste. That pig cooked all night. By party time after her graduation ceremony, the meat was so tender!
