I am so glad Kiwitwist reminded me about Laverne & Shirley! These dames were hilarious, always getting into trouble and being punks. I wish there were more corny female comedians like this now! In this episode (if memory serves me correctly), L & S have been dying to go to this mixer to meet hot guys. They can't afford the dresses, or the price of admission or something, so they sign up to have medical experiments conducted on them for cash. Bad. Idea. Shirley arrives having not eaten for three days; Laverne without sleep. Let's just say they have one track minds, and meeting dudes is not on the agenda anymore!
When I was in college, one of my pals introduced me to the weirdest concoction: Pepsi Milk. And yes, it's exactly what it sounds like, Pepsi and milk mixed together at last. The end result is actually way tastier than it seems (think about a Pepsi float once the ice cream has started to melt) and I surprisingly enjoyed it on more than one occasion.
Now, many years later, I was searching for references to Pepsi Milk and discovered that my crazy friend did not invent this drink on her own. In fact it was enjoyed on national television by one Penny Marshall (aka Laverne De Fazio from Laverne & Shirley). Rumor has it that Penny Marshall enjoyed them in real life and had it written into Laverne's character.
