Remember Bob Newhart’s old telephone routines? Where you only got half the conversation, and your own brain filling in the other half was part of what made it funny?

If you answered “No,” then you need to check out ‘The Button Down Mind of Bob Newhart’ from, I dunno, about fifty years ago or something.  And get it on LP, for heaven’s sake.  That’s how you’re supposed to listen to that stuff.  With a big ol’ cardboard sleeve photo to look at instead of video.
