10 Things I Have Learned From Watching “Gilligan’s Island”

Today is Alan Hale’s birthday. He was the Skipper on Gilligan’s Island (in case you didn’t know). So, instead of posting about things I have learned from watching The Brady Bunch, I have decided to do a post about the things that I have learned from watching Gilligan’s Island.

In watching Gilligan’s Island I have learned that:

  1. If you are in a social situation with at least 7 people, there is always going to be one person who screws shit up.
  2. You can make a battery out of a coconut.
  3. There are never enough rocks to spell the word HELP when you need it.
  4. Movies stars sometimes go on 3 hours excursions with ‘normal’ people.
  5. If you take the boat out for a few hours, make sure you take a record player. You never know when you may have to put on a talent show or beauty pageant.
  6. Headhunters don’t speak English. The speak fake made-up gibberish centered on the words ‘OOGA’ and ‘BOOGA’.
  7. If you get hit on the head with a coconut you’ll see everything upside down.
  8. Passengers on passing ships never see or pay attention to people on a deserted island who are jumping up and down and waving their arms.
  9. Red berries are poisonous.
  10. Loose fillings can turn your mouth into a radio receiver.
