News, but not the serious kind
It’s lovely weather for a clayride together with you!
Blog Guy, whatever happened to Gumby after his long career as an entertainer?
I think you’ll be very surprised. My private detectives have tracked the reclusive clay figure to China, where he now works pulling a rickshaw.
Way! Oh, he’s matured a bit, gotten tan from the outdoor work, grown a mustache and often wears a straw hat to cover that head hump, but it’s the same dude.
I just can’t believe my childhood idol has dropped out! Gumby has feet of clay!
Well he would, wouldn’t he? But don’t despair. My Hollywood sources tell me Gumby may be lured back for a new TV western, riding his pony, Pokey, wearing a mask and spreading frontier justice.
That sounds kind of familiar. What’s it called?
Who was that masked man? The Loam Ranger!
