Is waterboarding or Bonanza worse?

Today we are nestled nicely at a dock in Corpus Christi, TX, waiting for more favorable weather before we head back to Louisiana.
Because we were at sea the last few days, we didn't have television, which is a problem for some, not so much for others.

But praise be to the most high, we have TV today and our deckhand is laying on the couch in the galley, with a pillow, watching yet again, MORE EPISODES OF BONANZA.
For anyone who is a fan of those crazy ranch hands named Little Joe and Ben Cartright, you will remember they first graced out TV sets in the 1960's.
People, let's be honest, most of the fans of that TV show, ARE NOW DEAD.
Why does it have to be on our TV EVERY SINGLE DAY?

I mean, who can't get enough of Little Joe and Adam and Hop Sing, right?
The answer my friends, I CAN!

Dear CIA. Forget about "waterboarding" ( an information gathering tool, not torture) for gathering information. Do you want information from a suspected terrorist?
Put them in front of a television for a couple of days with reruns of Bonanza playing all day every day, and you'll get your information.

As of this moment, I'll confess to anything.

I can sing the song for you if'n you want. My sissy and I (see Di above) watched that show faithfully. But I agree, enough is enough.

Actually, I was crazy for little Joe's horse.

If you have a choice, go for the water boarding. Oh, wait a minute. Somebody just told me they don't pour the water on a board but on you. On second thought, go for Bonanza...
