    Weird - I just heard a garage band doing a riff on the Mutual of Omaha theme. Whatever happened to Mutual of Omaha? And who had the best job, Marlin Perkins, or Jim Fowler?

    Wow, I would think a grudge band could better than the Mutual of Omaha theme LOL.
    Tell them about Rage against the Machine.

    Well, I used to think that Marlin had the cushy job, talking to the cameras in his nifty safari suit, while Jim had to wade into the swamp and wrestle with the crocodiles. But after encountering a few cameras, I'm thinking maybe the crocs aren't so bad after all.

    Who's Jim Fowler? I remember Marlon Perkins -- he was even older than me.

    Ok I looked it up on the net. Fowler succeeded Perkins in 198 something. According to its official website, WK is returning to Animal Channel.

    Jeez, maybe we'd better just drop it before everyone realizes how long ago that was. Marlin was the skinny old guy who did all the talking, while Jim was the big quiet quiet guy who did all the wrangling (wrestling) of the animals.
