Airdate: Thursday - December 28, 1972

WOR Show

Show Description
This is the only time of the year you can get a goose in a restaurant. Shep talks about "A Christmas Carol" and mispronounces all the names of the major characters. Scrooge - Stooge Marley - Barley Cratchet - Hatchet He also quotes the first line of Mobey Dick as "Call me Israel" He tells the story of being attacked by a goose as a kid. He used to go by a neighbor's yard, every day on the way home from school, where there was a goose behind the fence. Each day he would run by the yard running a stick across the fence - tat tat tat...and the goose would go wild chasing after his trying to get through the fence. One day as he got to the end, he found the gate was open and the goose came tearing out after him. The goose chases his all the way down the street, through the back door and into the kitchen. Shep hides in the bathroom while his parents chase the goose around the kitchen for five minutes before getting it out the back door where it waited until the lady who owned it came.
Shep does the General Tire ad twice. Once about 17 minutes into the show and then at the end. Seems like he finished his dialog early and filled with the commercial.
