My cab driver was going on a downtown one-way street in the wrong direction. I shouted, “What are you doing? This is a one-way street!”, the cab driver quipped, “Weʹre only going one way!”, and I said, “Well, didnʹt you see the arrows?”, and he said, “I didnʹt see the Indians!”

In 1977, Elvis Costello and The Attractions made their U.S. TV debut on “Saturday Night Live”, apparently deputizing for The Sex Pistols, who couldnʹt get a visa to enter the country.

In 1989, “The Simpsons Christmas Special”, whose animated stars, The Simpsons, were first seen on April 19, 1987, as a series of shorts on “The Tracey Ullman Show”, aired as a special on Fox. To buy presents for his brood, low-on-dough Homer needs to receive a sizable Christmas bonus; unfortunately, he doesnʹt get one at all. So he dips into Margeʹs mad money, the stash of bills she keeps in a glass jar hidden in her blue high-rise beehive hairdo, only fourth-grader Bart has somehow been able to get himself a tattoo, and all the moneyʹs gone to have it surgically removed. So a downcast Homer becomes a department-store Santa (“You must really love us to sink so low,” Bart tells him tenderly), earns $13, takes it to the dog track, bets it on a real dog of a dog — so slow he still hasnʹt finished — then loses his money but ends up with the pooch. And itʹs the best present anybody named Simpson ever got. Without forgoing any of the usual “Simpsons” hip satire, hilarious cynicism, and cool put-downs, “Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire” is still able to be about the Christmas spirit, giving and receiving, and traditional family values. And tattoos. Have a reindeer, man. The “Simpsons” series would debut January 14, 1990. The dogʹs name? “Santaʹs Little Helper.”
