Episode 206: Shep’s Bulldada

July 24, 2009

“Shep” refers to the great Jean Shepherd of “A Christmas Story” fame. “Bulldada” is unintentional hilarity, and, in this case, unintentional hilarity of the type that finds its way to you in the mail, slipped into a library book, hiding on a thrift-store shelf, or pinned to a public kiosk. Information that can CHANGE YOUR LIFE! Listen as Jean Shepherd, from April 1965, with True Slack, reads one such piece of Bulldada.
