Florence Henderson, the actress who played perky mom Carol Brady in the beloved family sitcom, says she once got crabs after a one-night-stand with career politician John Lindsay, who was the mayor of New York City at the time.

(Thanks to Jeff Meyerson, and Catherine, who writes: "Here's the story, of a lovely lady, who got crabs from the mayor of New York.")

She must have had sex on the beach if she woke up with "crabs".

At what exact point in life does one get the urge to tell everything? Are there road signs or just giant potholes?

He must have had a certain "Wessonality".

Way, way TMI.

Steve, I think there are people (the Kardashian sisters, for example, and Octomom) who always have the need. It's just the "reality tv" world we live in now that gives them the outlet to force the rest of us to hear about it, rather than just their families.

"C'mere honey, check out my c-section incision."
"Thanks, Grandma, maybe next time."

...but she redeems herself by using the words "kibosh."

"Married and unattractive friend"? WTFBBQ does that mean?

Now I know why the Brady kids weren't allowed in the study - too many skeletons hiding in the closet!

Didn't she also have an affair with Greg Brady aka Barry Williams. I'm beginning to think Mrs. Brady was a little bit of a slut.

She reported they had one date. I suspect it ended badly when she reported that Christopher ("Peter") Knight was a better kisser than Barry....

Frankly I'm glad I didn't know this during the '60's and '70's. I had enough trouble holding onto my sanity in the face of boxy cars and disco.

Agree with Steve. Why ? This is right up there with Geraldo who named all the ladies he slept with in his book. Good reading for you kids.

Here's the story,
Of a lovely lady,
Who was busy, just happily having lunch

Then one day, the lady met this fellow,
and they knew they'd have much more than a hump.

That this group of very active crabs,
Must somehow be removed from their private bumps.

(With apologies to the Brady kids, who may not know Mom was a slut. We bet Alice knew.)

I wonder if Dave is going to write a tell all book.

What, "Oosiks I Have Known and Loved (and Made Jokes About)"?

There's a lot you should be glad you didn't know back then. Mrs. B was getting busy with the mayor, Mr. B was getting busy with the mailman, and Alice was enjoying the butcher's meat.

As someone who watched "The Brady Bunch" with all my sibs and occasionally my mom and/or dad, this is definitely TMI.

I'm pretty sure this also won't help sell books, but I'll defer to the resident author as to what it is that sells.

Aah, for the good old days, when antibiotics, special shampoo or a simple shave could take care of the unwanted consequences of your indiscretions.

Well, let's see mow...

Mr. Brady (actually the actor) was gay and died of Aids,

Mrs. Brady got crabs from the mayor of NYC...

Alice was a kind-hearted lesbian...

Bobby Brady was on meth...

Typical American "TV" family, I guess, and
such a shame...

Dave wrote a book?

Oh good Lord, what is next?

June Cleaver being an aggressive dominatrix with whips & chains?

I think I want to hibernate for a year or so.
