RESPONSE from Gary North:

I want to rise in defense of Soupy Sales!

He was famous for ad-libbing.  Here is what he said (approximately).

“Hey, kids, go to your father’s wallet when he’s sleeping.  Take out some of those green pieces of paper with pictures of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson on them and send them to your friend Soupy at WNEW, New York City.”

He got suspended for two weeks.  He apologized.

Let’s face it: the gag was aimed at adults.  He had a lot of adult viewers wherever he broadcast.

Some people lack a sense of humor.
