Larry the Cable Guy’s Funniest Episodes

Larry the Cable Guy as an honorary beekeeper on the History Channel’s “Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy.”

Thanks to his History Channel show, Only in America, Larry the Cable Guy gets around. As the new season gets underway this month, he shares with us two of his favorite episodes from past seasons:

“At the Space Museum outside of Roswell, New Mexico, they have a heat tile from the first space shuttle. It cost them $10,000 and they’re real proud of it. The curator told me they’ll blowtorch it and put 300 degrees on it, and you can’t even feel it. I was like, ‘Get out of here, this thing! It’s so light!’ I tapped it … and it split in half.”

“Then there was the town of one. Monowi, Nebraska, was a town of 100-something when Elsie Eiler, 78, got married. Then everyone began leavin’ and dyin’ and leavin’ and dyin’. By 2004 it was just Elsie. She was the mayor, the town council, the judge, the cop …. I wanted to help her raise money to fix her main road. Of course you need to have a vote of the city council first, so she sat down and said, ‘Ok, we’ll call a meeting. All in favor of fixing the front road with a cookout say aye.’ And she said ‘aye.’ So she said, ‘All right, the ayes have it!’ And she got her road fixed.”
