I've posted here a few times and always got answers to things I was curious about, so forgive me if someone asked this in the past, but what is the joke about Mr. Kitsel (sp?). I am presuming that the actor is trying to affect an Irish accent (I always picture a leprechaun when he speaks), but why are all the gags relating to his Irish-ness funny?
I have a number of tapes of the JBP and there are a number of things I'm curious about that seem to get laughs.
Also, what's the story with the two episodes from different time periods that both feature Van Johnson? The scripts seem almost exactly alike. Were they having a writer's strike at the time (Dennis's laugh to one joke in one of these episodes sure was different from the first time he laughed at the same joke in another episode.)
