A Very Special Post (About Very Special Episodes)

This Wikipedia entry on "Very Special Episodes" has some true classics.

  • Diff'rent Strokes - When Arnold is offered drugs on the playground, Nancy Reagan comes and speaks to his class about drugs and pushes her "Just Say No" campaign.

  • Facts of Life - A pimp almost strong-arms Tootie into prostitution.

  • Punky Brewster - Cherie's artist cousin cannot read; and it results in disaster when her little brother is poisoned and she can't read the warning label.

William Shatner's Spplat Attack! DVD

William Shatner's Spplat Attack! DVD

No explanation can convey the sheer stupidity/awesomeness of this thing.

Most awkward run-in with a famous person.

The Awful Forums - Most awkward run-in with a famous person.

See above for some fascinating reading. This was one of the best stories from the thread:

"Back in the 60's, my mother and her friend Susan were air stewardesses working on the flights between Miami and the Bahamas. This was the age when air travel was very glamorous and only the rich could afford to fly. At the time they were making the Bond film "Thunderball" with Sean Connery in the Bahamas, and Susan managed to get an invite to one of the many parties the crew had.

At one of these parties Susan meets Sean Connery who was, at the time, one of the world's sexiest men. Susan was no hambeast herself - in the un-PC 60's they only hired very good looking air stewardesses. Connery invites Susan back to his hotel room for a nightcap, and they go off together. Obviously Connery pulls his moves once he's in the hotel room, but she wards off his advances. She had a boyfriend, and she had an early flight to make the next day. So she ends up leaving with nothing happening, much to Connery's chagrin.

A few months later she has married her boyfriend and is now visibly pregnant but is still working. As she goes down the airplane aisle, she suddenly sees Sean Connery and stops and says hello.

He looks her up and down, stops at her round belly and says, "I shee your not shaying no anymore then.""
