Some of the most liked of our blog posts have involved the comedy, or sometimes just the presence of Leonard Hackett, who we all know as Buddy Hackett.
Buddy made many appearances on the Johnny Carson Show, and often the dialogue between them was just as funny, or maybe even funnier, than Hackett's stand-up jokes.

In the video we're sharing today, Hackett starts off by talking about golf, southern accents, and his mother, but at around 4 minutes into the clip he gets passionate about the TV censors denying his First Amendment rights to use a three letter word meaning "buttocks." He launches into two jokes that illustrate his point.
