Spong-Fong Ping-Pong

Here's an old Denver Post clipping my Mom sent from probably the time that then president Nixon allowed U.S. table tennis players to go to China.

Spong-Fong Ping-Pong

"It was reported that Sens William B. Spong (Va.) and Hiram Fong (Hawaii) got their heads together to spnsor a bill recommending the mass ringing of church bells to hail the arrival in Hong Kong of the U.S. table tennis team after its tour of Communist China.

"Unfortunately, the motion died, cheating Congress out of passing the Spong-Fong Hong Kong Ping-Pong Ding-Dong Bell bill."

Wikipedia says that this is only a joke. There never was such a bill. Good joke, though.

Indeed. "If Judy Carne married Art Carney, she'd be Judy Carne Carney. Then, if she caught a cold, she's be Judy chilly Carne Carny."

Good night, Dick.
