336. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right


Thursday, August 2nd, 5:00pm
Drew (and Cletis)


Drew sits at the window. Cletis takes the seat beside him.

Drew: I think I’ve finally figured out why they call them “TV dinners.”

Cletis: Oh yeah?

Drew: Yes. The philosophy of having something so simple as to be able to cook it without any preparation ahead of time, allows one to watch television whilst awaiting a delicious meal with minimal effort.

Cletis: Huh. I thought it was ’cause when you stick ’em in the microwave you can watch them go around and around, just like you was watchin’ TV.

Drew: (thinks for a moment) It could be that too.

  1. Were it not for the fact that the TV dinner came out long before the microwave oven, I could very easily see that.


    • But having said that, I didn’t realize the joke existed until I saw the dog sitting outside waiting to come back in and noticed the note still there. So it wasn’t entirely staged.


  2. Thanks for the chuckle. I like both reasons.
