    Hehehe... I remember a classic:

    "Yassar Arafat."



    "What is the sound made when Dolly Parton reviews her bra."

    I kid you not... a classic Carson line from 20+ years ago.

    hmmm - I think I remember "Imitate the sound made when Dolly Parton removes her bra".

    That was one of the funniest lines I remember from the Tonight show. And I remember hearing it live!

    After Ed's million-word intro, Carnac would finally figure out how to get through the curtain, walk the wrong direction, then trip on the step and fall into the chair. Hysterical.

    I think they could re-broadcast every single Johnny Carson Tonight Show for 20 years, and it would still get the highest viewer numbers.

    That must have been it. I heard/saw it live too (which is why I think I remembered it). One of the best. I really loved the wacky ones.

    And speaking of remembering Carson stuff, I very distinctly remember seeing Sam Kinison doing his classic "Are You Lonesome Tonight" (the Elvis imitation)... one of the funniest things he ever did. I was never much of a fan of his (because he would turn so nasty and foul and loud), but this thing is tempered just enough. I have that as a MP3 or wav file here somewhere and I'm sure it's out there on-line. Sam was really good singer and to hear him combine that with a comedy stunt in the middle of the song was something I'll never forget.

    EDIT: found it on YouTube (of course)... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EclQVQGqnZ0
    Carson nearly lost it on his show (given his history of marriage), but that isn't shown at the end of this clip. It's worth a complete watch for the fun affect, but the craziness starts at about 1:20.
