Stormy Weather

I love me some Paul Lynde as Uncle Arthur on Bewitched...or as anyone on any show for that matter.

He was simply one of the funniest actors on the planet and, no matter where you happen upon him in reruns, he's always hilarious.

So, when I came upon this clip of him guest-hosting the weather on a local Toledo news station in 1978, I had to post it. The dated newscaster clothing and hair is already a hoot...but watching Paul attempt to deal with all the "fancy technology" of the time is classic.

Lordy...he kills me.

omg! this is gayer than Glee's GaGa episode!

Is that even possible? If so...I hope Glee does a Paul Lynde-themed episode next season.

Believe it or not, I have never seen this! Hysterical! I wonder if he was tanked. Fab find Ken.

Wow...I'm so happy to have found a Paul Lynde clip you had not seen. And, I'm pretty sure, he was a "wee" bit nippy.

It just makes him that much more HIlarious.

Paul Lynde was always a riot in everything he did. I could always count on him on the Hollywood Squares to make me laugh. Here's a favorite site:

Yeah...he was always hilarious. Just that laugh and the way he could turn a phrase. Miss him.
