Yep, The Odd Couple is where I saw the ASS/U/ME thing for the first time too. Although I remember thinking it WAS pretty clever, but that was probably due to the combination of me being a kid and the word "ass" not showing up on prime time TV very often in those days.

Ah, yes the ever popular Brady Bunch Episode where Mrs. Brady is getting sued by a charlitan for giving him whiplash….I always thought Mr. Brady was a genius after that!

Mon, Wed, & Fri, AWESOMO!

I’m gonna try the ‘U’ and ‘I’ line on this girl at work today… Maybe she’ll overlook the cheesiness and think it’s cute… "crosses fingers"

I first saw ASS/U/ME on a Benny Hill. Completely forget what it was about, but I remember him writing it on a board, and the audience similarly busting up.

Maybe it was a new joke around then.

I first encountered it in reading ‘Silence Of The Lambs’. At least Thomas Harris seemed pretty conscious that simply by using it the guy was self-conferring asshood…

You know what they say about ‘assumptions’? They make an ass out of ‘u’ and ‘umptions’.

… it’s a silent hidden ‘u’

When I saw "Under Siege 2 – Dark Territory" (look – it was air conditioning-related. Honest) I heard the line "Assumption is the mother of all f*ck-ups". Then I heard it again in "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert".

Both times I immediately thought back to Felix and the chalkboard.

I think one of these times, abe should actually get a girl. only to fall deeply in love with her, then she breaks his heart, so he carves it out, and puts it in a chest..keeping the key with him at all time.

I first heard the ass/u/me from a guy at scarborough fair, although i dont think he meant to say it, he was trying to make a joke about a mathematician which was not funny

Wow, three times in a week, Bernie’s the Peter Stringfellow of web comics. At least with speed dating Abe’s got a chance of finding love with someone as desperate as himself….
