Unfunny comedians alive in the 1970s who shaped my sense of what was “funny” to a troubling extent simply because they were on Hollywood Squares, and the tv in our house was rarely turned off:

Peter Marshall: It is considered in bad taste to discuss two subjects at nudist camps. One is politics, what is the other? Paul Lynde: Tape measures.
Phyllis Diller: When I go to the beauty parlor, I always use the emergency entrance.
Peter Marshall: Back in the old days, when Great Grandpa put horseradish on his head, what was he trying to do? George Gobel: Get it in his mouth.
Peter Marshall: Do rosy cheeks always mean good health? Charley Weaver: Not if you’re sitting on a radiator!
Jo Anne Worley: I didn’t know Dr. Spock cared about people. I thought he was only interested in babies.
Peter Marshall: Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Strauss lived in the same place. Where did they all live?Wayland Flowers and Madame: At the YMCA!

There's this game put out by the American Girl company called "300 Wishes"--I really like playing it because then I get to marvel, "Wow, it's like I'm a real live American girl who has 300 wishes, and that doesn't suck, especially compared to being a dead one with none."
