Cheers, Where everybody knows your name

I used to love that show! These are the types of things that would make me watch it!

explained by Cliff Clavin, of Cheers.
One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory to his buddy Norm. Here's how it went:

" Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first . This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

my favorite was Carla & Sam the married couple. Remember when he would look at her with one eye and she would fall head over heals. At the end of the show,her name was Carla Maria Victoria Angelina Teresa Appollonian Luzupone Tortelli LeBec

I always wanted Sam and Diane to finally hitch it. I don't believe I caught the last episode.

Nicole said...

Wasn't it Nick? Was Carla's hubby named Sam too?

Ellie said...

Aww shoot Nic, you called me out on that goof...but did you know her full name was Carla Maria Victoria Angelina Teresa Appollonian Luzupone Tortelli LeBec...uh huh!

and no...I didn't use cut and paste....err

That was one of the few things Cliff ever said that was actually true.

Or, at least, I believe it's true.

I am much smarter since I started drinking beer than I was before.
