In an alternate universe, however, this would have been funny to at least four or five people


I heard on the radio this morning that Tony Curtis died. As Eddie Fisher passed away just the other day, I came up with what I thought was a pretty funny line: "If I had ever slept with Debbie Reynolds, I'd be really, really concerned right now." Because Reynolds had been married to Fisher and, I thought, Curtis--or that they had at least been a couple. But when I looked it up to confirm, I found out I was wrong: Not only were Reynolds and Curtis never married, they were never even involved.

So, basically, I've got nothing.

Also, for the record, I have never slept with Debbie Reynolds. Or Tony Curtis.

Hmm, and yet you're strangely silent on the "slept with Eddie Fisher" question.

I know. Weird, isn't it?

Maybe it's Jewish people who should be worried.

Debbie and Tony Curtis did make two very fine movies together: The Rat Race and Goodbye Charlie.
