Pardon the FLASHBACK – and yes, it’s pretty much a flashback, like drugs 😀
I let my son watch this show back in the day, but I’m well aware that certain parents thought it was a horrible show, addled with drug-induced references and colorful, wacky characters…but this is EXACTLY why I let my son watch it! We still reference it today – I’m not ashamed. I wish more kids and parents would watch it. I’m not sure what it inspires, but it teaches, and I’ll accept that any day.
BTW, Cyndi Lauper does a great character voice similar to Betty Boop (remember her?) for this opening theme. She used the same type for her “She’s So Unusual” album, and while kitschy, it’s brilliant. Her “normal” speaking voice is very sultry, and I’d love to hear her do more voiceover work…

Hello dear readers,
Just a posting to let you know that I stand with Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson – and a brief explanation of why.
My bottom line is this: I don’t care, or want to know about, people’s sexuality. Which means, I don’t care if someone is gay or straight. I have plenty of other things to worry about in life other than what people said about homosexuality…that’s not about me, anyway. Yes, I know what the Bible says about it, but as a Christian, I find it entirely invasive to ask or talk to people about their sexuality, and I won’t answer questions about mine.
You may be a different flavor of Christian than I am. You won’t get an argument outta me for that reason alone. Even if you’re not a Christian, think how you’d like.
The show “Duck Dynasty” is realllllly funny, IMHO, so I’d watch it regardless of the family’s religious beliefs.
