I don't think it's acceptable to make a statement like that (assuming of course that you're serious) without going into details. Ya can't let people hangin (pun intended) like that, tell us about your gramps.

nope .. just an old old old old joke I heard when I was a kid.... Probably a Red Skelton or a Johathan Winters joke..

There was also an interesting Pa murder case called "The Blue Eyed Six." That happened around the Indiantown Gap area of Pa...
