11 July 1998 - that big a star

< yesterday -- tomorrow >

Seinfeld and Roseanne Barr,
And Taps for Fred Astaire.
I only hope that I’m that big a star
When I go off the air.

clue:

Seinfeld ran from 1990-1998. Roseanne ran from 1988-1997. Fred Astaire died in 1987.

You can find the original of this parody at the end of your volume of Tennyson. The Victorians were cute that way.

give me a clue so sweet and true
