"Two Infinitis and beyond!"

I actually groaned. Heh.

I had to click on the Freeze a Jolly Good Fellow to see if that was about Ted Williams.

Ted's now better known for his Mr. Freeze routine than for hitting .406 in '41, which is awfully unfair.

Much as I admired Ted Williams, I would never have characterized him as "jolly," even for the sake of a punchline.

(Let's see if anyone buys that.)
