Killing time until 8:07 tonight

With a question raised in a St. Louis Post-Dispatch mailbag: if you were the Cardinals, would you trade Albert Pujols for Clayton Kershaw and Matt Kemp?

No, no one is really suggesting it. It’s more of a “would you rather . . .” kind of game. And for the record, my usual answers to these things are Veronica over Betty; Betty over Wilma; Bailey over Jennifer; and Mary Ann over Ginger.

    It’s a purely physical thing. I like brunettes. I’m sure Betty is better marriage material, but I’m already married, if you see what I’m sayin’ here . . .

    I go Jennifer over Bailey myself. Maybe its just receptionist > intern (or whatever you call Bailey’s job)…

    Oh no, Bailey over Jennifer, and it’s not even close.

    Never thought extensively about Veronica/Betty, but I’d probably lean Veronica as well.  And, of course, Mary Ann over Ginger.

    As for Wilma/Betty, I’d probably give it a pass altogether and have another drink.

    Bailey for the repressed sexuality that you would think overflow once given the chance, but don’t underestimate Jennifer—she wasn’t a dumb blonde … I personally prefer Bailey, but that is the closest of the four. So with you on Veronica!

    The problem I see with Veronica is just that she’s too obvious.  Same with Jennifer – it’s not that I think she’s a dumb blonde, it that I think she’s too much the trite cliche.

    Of course, to turn the discussion back to baseball, that’s my problem with the Yankees:  Too much the obvious trite cliche!

    Probably Jackie. She may be a spoiled brat but Donna is a little too “Lumberjack” and Eric’s sister is a controlling little *bleep* to say the least.

    If you statheads didn’t live in your Mom’s basement maybe you could find a real girl.

    Nah, the total Mom’s basement questions is
    Kim Ng or Pam Gardner.

    Young Andy, google “WKRP in Cincinatti”

    I’ll repeat the above question: who are Bailey and Jennifer?

    Also; Wilma, Lois and Gabrielle.  I’ve got a thing for redheads. However, Jackie beats out (redhead) Donna by a large margin, and by large I mean Donna.

    Jason:  Baliey is Bailey Quarters, a character from the old late 70s sitcom “WKRP in Cincinnati,” which just so happened to be the best show ever (I’ll allow Barney Miller and Night Court to enter the conversation, but I’ll lean WKRP).  Jennifer was Jennifer Marlowe, another character on the show.  Bailey was played by Jan Smithers. Jennifer was Loni Anderson.  Jennifer was the obvious sexpot, blond bombshell.  Smithers was the somewhat mousey brunette, glasses-wearing librarian type.

    Over time, the CW has come around to the fact that Bailey > than the far too obvious Jennifer.  Though, to be fair, I wouldn’t throw Jennifer out of bed for eating crackers.
