What The Duck??

Lord Almighty, everyone is up in arms, good and bad over what this duck dude said about gays.

A&E has suspended him from their show and who knows what will happen.

But this is not the first time a show has suspended one of it’s stars.

Here are some of those that got in trouble for saying things that maybe they shoudn’t have.

CAPTAIN KANGAROO

In April of 1966, was suspended for 6 weeks because it was discovered he was neither a captain, or a kangaroo. When asked about his suspension,  he said,  “We will post our response on Facebook at the right time.”  Since this was the 60’s, Facebook was considered a pornography reference, the Captain was put in jail for another 30 days.

When released, the captain made many references to “Dropping the soap” on his show, which  most though to be the ole ‘clean your mouth out with soap’ if you curse.  The captain would laugh inside at that when he sat down years later for a gripping tell all interview with Hoda and Kathie Lee, who both passed out drunk during the interview.

Before he hosted Jeopardy, Alex Trebek was the host of a Canadian game show called, How Big Is It?  The show was about guessing how big a hockey player’s stick is and in one show, a contestant got a wrong answer and Trebek said, ‘HOW FU*KING STUPID ARE YOU?  The contestant was the wife of former Canadian PM Pierre Trudeau, who had Trebek thrown in jail, for ‘Not being a good Canadian.’

BOZO

Was suspended for one year when, on his show one morning, asked at the time First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson if she would, “Honk on his bobo.”  Lady Bird said absolutely and Bozo proceeded to, well, and the Secret Service stepped in.  Bozo told the Nashville Banner in a all too revealing interview that he “was hopped on some shi* that Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson gave him one night at Tootsie’s.”  Bozo spent 3 months in jail for his actions.
