I could have written jokes for all the variety shows. Carol Burnett, Sonny & Cher, Donny & Marie...maybe even 'Pink Lady & Jeff"

Here's a picture of erudite TV personality Dick Cavett getting a check up in the mid-1970's. Dick is making the doc laugh with a witty rejoinder. Or perhaps a wry observation. Whichever it is, I'm confident I know the subject of the joke. I'll paraphrase: "Well, actually doc, I'm felling pretty good. Of course, I haven't gotten your bill yet."

Things were easier then. Someone build me a time machine so's I can get rich.
