Super bowl humor

Very rarely do TV programmers, in my opinion, show any cleverness or real humor, but tonight LOGO is showing "The Brady Bunch Movie"

JFK - Khrushev

Kissinger asked Chua en lie what difference it would have made if Khruschev had been assassinated instead of JFK, Chua thought for a minute & said: "I don't think Onassis would have proposed to Mrs. Khruschev."

Oscar Oversight

In the history of the Oscars only 3 African-Americans have been nominated for Best Director - all men: John Singleton (1991, "Boys N the Hood"), Lee Daniels (2009, "Precious") & Steve McQueen (2013, "12 Years a Slave"). This year, although "Selma" was nominated for Best Picture, it's director Ava DuVernay was passed over. This is rightly eliciting much criticism on the Internet.
