What was that stuff you just gave me?

Anybody that used to watch Gilligan's Island suspected that Mary Ann's innocent farm girl routine was just an act but still this comes as a bit of a surprise --

A surprise birthday party for Dawn Wells, the actress who played Mary Ann on "Gilligan's Island," ended with a nearly three-hour tour of the Teton County sheriff's office and jail when the 69-year-old was caught with marijuana in her vehicle while driving home.

In retrospect it's obvious somebody was passing around a little herb. Gilligan in particular seemed to be living in a perpetual state of the munchies. No real human being could put away that many coconut-cream pies.

Speaking for myself this definitely tips the Mary Ann vs. Ginger scale in the direction of the girl in the tight shorts.
Take a look at this photo of the Professor. Look at the equipment he's working on in his "lab." You might suppose the Professor is making glue to fix the boat or trying to find a way to turn an invisible Gilligan back to normal. WRONG!
It was right there under our noses this whole time. No wonder those idiots never got off the island. They were all lying on the beach listening to Pink Floyd and giggling to themselves.

She's 69 for god sakes. If she can't enjoy a little hooch then, when can she?

Absolutely! I love this story. I hope she gets off scott free.

I wondered what they had in the Minnow's cargo hold. Now I know.

Oh hell, this all but clinches it for her in that most traditional of babe debates.

Dude, like a 3,000 hour tour.

She's 69, lives in Idaho and sparks doobies?

And the problem is...????

Fran said...

Speaking of doobies, you are being rolled.

hard to believe they had room with all the cash the Howell's had packed.


So true. She wins hand's down.


Good point. It'd be strange if she wasn't smoking a little on the side.


It all makes sense. Like some giant jigsaw puzzle you're helping me put together...


I did not know that.

You know, every episode offered them a chance to get off the island but they never did. Now we know.

Dean Wormer said...


They never had the energy...
