Get Wise to Get Smart

In the first few moments of the black-and-white pilot episode of Get Smart, the camera hangs over an audience in a concert hall—Symphony Hall, the narrator tells us, in Washington D.C. Somewhere in the city is the headquarters for a secret counter-espionage organization known as “CONTROL.” And as the camera moves around the audience, capturing the group in evening dress, watching in rapt silence as the orchestra plays, the narrator informs us, that somewhere in the audience “is one of CONTROL’s top employees, a man who lives a life of danger and intrigue, a man who has been carefully trained never to disclose the fact that he is a secret agent.”

Family Tradition Ends With a Face Full of Cream

Occurred on November 25, 2021 / Laguna Beach, California, USA Info from Licensor: "The family was over for Thanksgiving and my daughter’s boyfriend came for dessert. We were doing our Thanksgiving tradition, where my sister puts out her home-baked pies after thanksgiving dinner, and the kids, ever since all were little toddlers, come around and open their mouths for a mouth full of whip cream from the store-bought whip cream can. This year my sister got a new baking tool - a CO2 can that you can put your own whip cream in. Take ONE: my sister, Darci, does the whipped cream in the mouth to my daughter Kami, who is now 18 years old and will likely become the giver of the tradition next year. It went off without a hitch. Her boyfriend Gunnar asked if he could try it and get in on the tradition and learn it so he can do it at his home too. He obviously has never done the tradition or used a CO2 can. He attempted his first time and failed miserably… it shot up her nose and all over her face."
