Episode Description:

The humble Farmer TV show for February 2, 2014

Thank you for looking at: “Eating Lobsters In Port Clyde.”

56 minutes. This show includes a 6.26 minute clip of Denny Breau playing guitar in Goldland, Florida and a 19 minute clip of humble showing you how to make a real Maine lobster stew.

Well received in Northern New England for 35 years, this is the same old fashioned music and humorous social commentary show that has delighted young and old alike every week since April 6, 1978 for radio --- and now for television.

Most of the video over the music is of humble eating lobsters with a crowd of artists in Port Clyde, Maine.

Music is by: Clark Terry, Sonny Stitt, Clarence Williams. Spike Jones and Denny Breau.

All of this is tame fare, indeed, for viewers expecting someone to be shot, arrested or blown up.

The show is tightly scripted. It starts out with humble driving his Model T into his St. George, Maine driveway, passing an alligator in Florida and some Colorado mountains on the way. The show ends, as usual, with the Keystone Cops driving a car off the end of a dock.

The humorous and/or informative commentary that humble delivers between the songs is approximated below:

1. Ever since Facebook was invented, I have gone to Google which brings up my screen of open-me icons across the top of the page and then opened my Facebook page. I just discovered that I can pull the Facebook icon down to the bottom of my computer screen and open Facebook without first going to Google. My point is that the wheel was probably invented in many different parts of the world at different times.

2. One day my wife Marsha, The Almost Perfect Woman, passed through this office/studio on her way home from the showers and said that she had been watching the famous girl who broke her leg skiing being interviewed on TV. The girl is very pretty and is Tiger Wood's acknowledged girlfriend. You might know who I mean. Marsha said that most of the interview with this girl consisted of, "err, ahh, mmm." Marsha said she wanted to shake the girl and beg her to spit it out. Marsha says she doesn't know how anyone with her linguistic skills could be one of the talking heads at the Olympic Games. Well, we all have things that we can and can't do. And we all have our idiosyncrasies that endear us to others. One of the most memorable high points of my teaching career was getting 5th grader Paul Strout to come up to the blackboard and do an imitation of me. Paul could have made a good living on stage as he is a natural observer of people. He had every one of my errs and ahhs and buts and favorite expressions and gestures down perfectly. Should this girl, who is one of the world's best skiers, be expected to excel in all other skills? Must she also be a great cook? Tiger Woods was probably not drawn into her net by her omelettes or apple pancakes. He's probably into muscle tone. I would cut the girl some slack. There is hope. You remember the movie called The King’s Speech where the king got help with his stuttering. So, before letting this girl with the broken leg on the air, the networks will certainly put her in the hands of a modern day Henry Higgins. She is very pretty and many men will probably not pay any attention to what she is saying anyway. Does this girl remind you of the 10-year-old violin virtuoso who could play every piece of literature written for his instrument? Next year his mother intends to teach him how to walk and feed himself.

3. My cough had been hanging in there for 35 days and I thought it was time to put an end to it before it put an end to me. I went into Pen Bay Medical Center and sat down on the other side of the desk from Judy, who checks people in. Big sign there on Judy’s computer: “Keep your germs to yourself. Cover your cough.” I told Judy I thought that was a good sign. And I told her that at shows I sometimes stood by the door and shook hands with two or three hundred people and the first thing I did afterwards was wash my hands. Think of all the germs that I spread, one hand to another. I got to wondering why we shake hands. The custom obviously evolved before people knew about germs and I told Judy that I think we should have another way of greeting our friends that wouldn’t spread germs. And Judy said, “Well, you know what my dog does.”
