From 1965… and an episode of the classic TV show, “Gilligan’s Island.” Yes, that same “Gilligan’s Island” (there’s only one) that invokes the inevitable questions: what were the Howells doing with trunks full of cash on a 3-hour tour (money laundering?), how many times can you eat coconut cream pie before getting sick of it, and if it was an uncharted desert isle, how did so many visitors/guest stars keep showing up there? 640 more words
