“Ask Fingers” is a new advice column for Parcbench readers. Fingers Malloy has no experience as a relationship, financial or career counselor. In fact, we aren’t entirely sure that he has ever been married, owned stock or even gainfully employed. Fingers claims to have been a bartender in the 1990′s, which is good enough for us.
Dear Fingers: Jack Klugman- Oscar or Quincy? – Morticia626, President of the Jack Klugman fan club.
That’s a difficult question for me to answer. What information are you trying to obtain by asking such a question? Is this your version of Ginger vs. Mary Ann? That would be kind of weird, being that it’s the same person. And if that is the kind of answer you want from me, well I can’t help you.
However, what really concerns me is that you are still interested in Quincy. The show ended in 1983. Lots of things have happened since then Morticia; Facts of Life, Silver Spoons, Alf, Full House, Fraggle Rock, After M*A*S*H, The A-Team, Punky Brewster, MacGyver, Growing Pains, Falcon Crest, Mama’s Family, Doogie Howser, M.D., Bill Cosby’s PicturePages, Mork & Mindy, Night Court, The Fall Guy, Vegas, CHiPs, Alice, G.L.O.W., Teen Wolf, Press Your Luck, Who’s the Boss?, B.J. and the Bear, Family Ties, A Different World, The Greatest American Hero, Max Headroom, Webster, Matlock, Life Goes On, Taxi, Charlie’s Angels, Magnum P.I., Remote Control, Gimme a Break, V, Police Academy-The Animated Series, Murder She Wrote, 227, My Two Dads, Alien Nation, Amen, The Arsenio Hall Show, Highway to Heaven, Trapper John, M.D., Friday Night Videos, The Gong Show, It’s Garry Shandling’s Show, Fame, Hart to Hart, The Love Boat, St. Elsewhere, Hill Street Blues, Solid Gold, Puttin on The Hits, In the Heat of the Night, It’s a Living, Police Squad!, Barney Miller, Kate & Allie, Family Ness, Remington Steele, Empty Nest, The Rockford Files, Bosom Buddies (the only thing Tom Hanks has done that was any good), Fantasy Island, The Highwayman, The Ropers, Dear John, Designing Women, Not Necessarily the News, China Beach, Too Close for Comfort, Riptide, Jake and the Fatman, Coach, Eight is Enough, L.A.

Dear Fingers: If people who think that Obama isn’t a citizen are called “birthers” then what will the people be called who don’t believe that a President Donald Trump has real hair? Joe from Oregon
Dear Fingers: How do you distinguish an “April Fool” from the other sorts? Tom in North Carolina
That’s easy, since most April Fool’s joke are lame there is an easy litmus test to notice the difference. If a person still thinks Rick Rolling is funny, he is an April fool…
