Halloween Is Coming!
What are you doing? Going to any parties?
Are you dressing up? As what?
(My costume is shown below.)
I'm dressing up as Alice Kramden from "The Honeymooners," which was a classic TV show from the 1950's starring Jackie Gleason as Ralph Kramden. Alice is his wife.
The joke of the show is that Alice is the smarter of the two, even though she is "only" a traditional housewife. Ralph always gets into trouble and Alice, who warns him beforehand, pulls him out of the fire. Despite quarrels, Ralph ends every show by admitting his error, conceding he should have listened to Alice, and professing his love for her. Now, isn't that nice?!
