. . . A tale of a fateful trip. . .

Well, among all the hoo-ha in the news about Governor Spitzer (sorry, ex-governer), some of you may not have heard that Dawn Wells, a.k.a. Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island, was busted for possession of marijuana in Idaho.

Apparently, she was pulled over by a police officer after returning from a surprise birthday party in her honor. (She just turned 69) The police officer found four half-smoked joints in her car along with some pot-smoking paraphernalia.

Can you believe this? Sweet, adorable, Mary Ann toking on Mary Jane. What is this world coming to?

I remember that show very well from my childhood. I loved the theme song because it changed keys between every verse. I thought that was cool.

But even as a kid, I thought the show was sexist. Mary Ann ran around in halter tops and short-shorts, yet we never saw The Professor sporting a pair of Daisy Dukes.

The Captain had that “Little Buddy” thing going on with Gilligan, yet it was such an abusive relationship. Gilligan would mess up a chance at being rescued and The Captain would swat him over the head with his cap or chase him down the beach.

The Captain was such a prick.

I loved Mrs. Thurston Howell the Third, “Lovey.” She was so clueless.
Does anyone know what her character’s first name actually was? It’s a big mystery.

Now, Mary Ann got busted for pot. Tsk tsk tsk.

But wait!

It turns out that the pot wasn’t hers after all!

A third party just came forward and admitted to leaving the joints in her car after borrowing it earlier in the day.

Geez Buck it is "The Skipper" not Captain.

Lovey was her name. Very Hianas Port.

Wasn't hers...yeah right. What do you think she was growing on that farm in indiana, and why do you think she was in Haiwaii? thats right meeting with the Kona FFA thats what.

My favorite episode to this day was the one when they did "Hamlet" set to Carmen for a stranded movie producer.

Which has nothing to do with pot.

Or maybe it did.

Eric: Wow, I can't believe I messed that up. The Skipper.

Lorraine: I seem to recall that episode. Hamlet set to Carmen - - way wrong.

The pot belonged to Gilligan. Duh.

Skipper is such a girly name.

And I just want to say that I'm against all these celebrities who think it's cool to smoke marijuana, instead of wrapping it a brown paper bag and leaving it on the ground, next to the fourth stone support beam in Millennium Park at 9pm on Wednesday.
