Sad but true story – last year I made a ‘You Bet Your Life’ joke to a community college theatre class, and they stared at me blankly.  OK, fair enough, it’s reasonably obscure – I explained that it was a game show hosted by Groucho Marx.  More goggle eyes.  Crying inside, I said, “Groucho MARX.  Of the Marx Brothers?”  and one desperate student gamely tried, “The Communism guy?”

There are not enough face palms in the world.
