Advertisements I saw him tell a joke once, I think it was on Carson (which seems hard to believe with censors and all), still funny today. It went something like this: Spoilered for language, and remember, you gotta picture Buddy Hackett saying this in his inimitable manner... Spoiler A man walks into a diner with his two young sons. A waitress shows them to a booth and takes their order. She turns to the older boy first and asks him, What can I get you honey? He replies, Ill have a goddamn cheeseburger! Without saying a word and without any hesitation, the father reaches across the table and smacks the kid, knocking him right out of the booth. So the kid is on the ground crying, and the waitress is all flustered. She tries to act as if nothing happened, and turns to the younger boy and asks, What can I get you sweetie? The younger boy replies, I dont know, but you can bet your sweet ass I aint gonna get no goddamn cheeseburger!
