Coo Coo

THE ODD COUPLE was just on TCM. I have pretty much stopped seeing anything I truly wish I would have included in my cigarette lighter book (it's much too late; the book comes out in a week or two), but I can't believe I forgot that in the scene when the "coo coo Pigeon sisters" come over, Felix tries to light a cigarette for one of them and mangles it in the snapping jaws of the lighter instead. I do discuss a similar gag from THE BELLBOY, and having another example to fortify my deep analysis surely would have secured my place in the history of cigarette lighter studies.
