Speaking of Irony

By Mitchell

Mitchell here, still live from Indianapolis.

For those of you still doubting the existence of God, you need look no further than the July 8, 1965 episode of the classic game show Password, which I just finished editing. On that episode, the celebrity contestants were Nancy Sinatra and Woody Allen.

I'm sure some of you already see the irony in this paring. For the rest of you, I'll continue.

Nancy Sinatra's father was, of course, Frank Sinatra. Just over a year from the airing of this show, Frank Sinatra married Mia Farrow. (The marriage lasted less than two years.) In the late 1980s, Mia Farrow began a long relationship with - Woody Allen. The same Woody Allen who would later cheat on her with her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi, an incident which prompted Frank to offer to have Allen's legs broken for.

So, in other words, Nancy Sinatra's father winds up threatening severe bodily harm against the guy with whom she's currently playing Password. And, of course, none of them have any clue as to what the future holds in store.

And therefore, you need no further proof that God exists, for no mere mortal could make something like this up.
