In 1965, “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson”: Ed Ames, who plays the Native American Mingo on Daniel Boone, is a guest on the show, broadcast live, to teach Carson his trademark tomahawk toss. Ames sizes up his target, a painted outline of a sheriff on a wooden wall, and explains his technique — “Put only one revolution on the way” — then rears back and lets fly. The camera zooms in on the wall: Amesʹs ax has landed squarely below the belt, right in the sheriffʹs crotch, and the audience, seeing what has occurred, begins one of the longest sustained laughs in television history-nearly a full minute. The young Carson, a student of the Jack Benny take, pauses to let the moment have its due. Cut to the ax and then to Johnny, who is preparing a comeback. Finally, as the applause begins to die down, Carson is able to get the words out. “I didnʹt even know you were Jewish,” he says to Ames, who doubles over with laughter. When the roar dissipates again, Carson displays a wit as sharp as Amesʹs tomahawk: “Welcome to Frontier Bris.” Ames asked Johnny if he wanted to try throwing it. “Well,” said the host, “I canʹt hurt him any more than you did.”

In 1983, After a 7-2 loss to Los Angeles at Wrigley Field, Cubs manager Lee Elia launches into an obscenity-laced tirade, that will become a much-reported media story on the airwaves and in print for days to come. The Chicago skipperʹs rant clearly shows his frustration with the teamʹs fan base, “the (bleepers) donʹt even work. Thatʹs why theyʹre out at the (bleeping) game. They oughtta go out and get a (bleeping) job and find out what itʹs like to go out and earn a (bleeping) living. Eighty-five percent of the (bleeping) world is working. The other 15 come out here.
