Great quiz, 23/25. I tried to share this on Facebook, but I could not, Facebook just gives me this message, "Your message couldn't be sent because it includes content that other people on Facebook have reported as abusive." Welcome to our new world order.
Worked fine for me

just thinking...

what IF the "woman speeder" who thought BAR-NAY looked like Frank Sinatra who think that if she heard him sing? (snicker snicker) I mean if an Ex-con thought BAR-NAY had a voice
JHP BrentwoodJon 25 days ago
Lemme Splain - the ex-con referred to was Elenora Poultice (aka Ralph Henderson blah blah - see the ep convicts at large)

Now the woman speeder came thru mayberry and wouldnt pay a fine - turned all witnesses to avoid the fine - and she thought BAR-NAY looked like frank sinatra

She would have covered her ears lol
JHP hermanstein2015 24 days ago
that would have been a better punishment for speeding - having her have to listen to "juanita (etc etc)

hermanstein2015 JHP 22 days ago
I understood what you said haha thought it was clever ;). We love the convict episode especially when "Al" might get it lol.
JHP hermanstein2015 22 days ago
it was a great ep - as much as I am a critic of TAGS - this one is buried on my DVR

BAR-NAY " you're beginning to get to me"
