LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – They say the apple doesn’t fall far from
the tree, but the eldest son of veteran humorist Dick Smothers of the Smothers
Brothers says his life’s ambition is to become "the Orson Welles of porn."
Late last year, Dick Smothers Jr., 38, shocked his father by embarking on
a career path that so far has included acting in several porn films, developing
a Web-based X-rated game show and launching an adult entertainment Web site.
To digress…….a favorite aphorism in my family is “the apple doesn’t fall far from the horse.” You know, for those times when people resemble the ‘fruit’ of the horse more than the fruit of the orchard!
