Jobs We've Had: Vance's Early Musical Career

This was Vance's first live performance on television, providing rythym for the great Tennessee Ernie Ford. (That's Vance just to Ernie's right.) Incidentally, Billy Bob Thornton modeled his character of "Carl" from Sing Blade on the footage of Vance here.

Another sighting of a Cornhusker....

This Cornhusker was spotted in Brandywine, Maryland today, just days after the "Blizzard of 2009" hit the region. Similar to the Western Cornhusker, both are still walking only semi-erect and have a diminished intellect. Oddly enough, both specimens have adapted to wearing what they call, the "Jimmy Durante" hat.

More Cornhuskers...

All of the intellectual giants are here from Nebraska. Larry the cable guy.
Johnny Carson, the GREAT ONE.

And the brain, Dick Cavett.
All this to say, Cornhuskers come in all sizes and shapes. Some smart and others, well, not so smart. Quotable quotes include: "Mr Leary, I think you're full of crap."- Dick Cavett.
"I'd give a years salary just to see whats going on under that shirt."- Johnny Carson speaking to Dolly Parton.
And last but not least, "GIT-ER-DONE"- Larry the cable guy.
