The Hundred Funniest Words. Part Four

I am going to replace eleven words.

I am dropping broccoli, macaroni, provolone, breadbox, spatula, salami, slush, cubbyhole, hippopotamus, hangnail, and dumbbell.

They will be replaced by titmouse, Sheboygan, tchotchke, spleen, gherkin, scrotum, putz, Lipschitz, schmendrick, phallus, and last but not least, cooties.

You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
