Ed, this is a great idea, but where did you get the Top 5?  Were they ranked by a television magazine?  If not, you should really put more options, because they are not my top 5, nor other people's, I would think.

To quote the RiffTrax version of the movie:
Ivy: "It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature!"
(Ivy makes flames burst on the ground)
Bill Corbett: "Well, I can't think of anything Mother Nature likes more than FIRE!"

Ed,

The Mississippi river is well above flood stage. The steps to the Gateway Arch facing the Mississippi river are covered by the Mississippi. The McDonald's nearest the Arch closed in 2000.

The McDonald's closest to the Arch is 6 minutes (4.8 miles) away.

Outrage upon outrage. Don't they have riverboats for that?
How soon before they expect the water to recede?
Hope your safe and dry.
You might get snowed in once in a while there.
This Winter it rained so hard here that Downtown Joshua Tree was Sanded in from civilization. Waited two days for trucks and loaders to relocate the sand that was piled up almost 2 feet in some spots off of the Main Road. Ca State Hwy 62.

Wow.  In the 60's/70's any given parking lot was an awesome car show.  :)

That is at least 1980. The blue car parked in front of the tan car with the white top at the entrance is a Chevy Citation. The first year for that was 1980. Since no one is wearing a jacket in the picture it would be at least Late March of 1980.

Also the Police Car is a downsized Crown Victoria. Also a 1980 probably.

Oh ......................news, news.......
If you type Ed Jones into IMDb search, I'm #2 on the list of Ed's by popularity.
That happened because I finally have a special thanks credit for an episode of a show from 2018. Courtesy of another Actor/Producer/Filmmaker that contributes here.

Al Bundy for me. A jaded workhorse of a man, who resents his life. But as he eloquently explained in an episode, he refuses to quit trying and just commit suicide. 

I love the Simpsons as a series, but I rarely care about Homer as a character. Too many jokes about his eating and drinking habits, relatively few efforts to give him emotional depth. I find several other characters in the series to be far more interesting.

D'oh even made it to the Oxford English Dictionary, Bild newspaper reported.
It's a special form of the word no. Homer seems to be the first toon character that
invented a new word which is so succesful to be mentioned in that form.
There might be other toon words, but this one is pretty cool. I rarely use it myself. ;D

I used to have a Bart Simpson as my co-pilot in my race car. It was a 6 inch tall doll taped to the roll cage of my B/SA NHRA Stock Eliminator 1969 Dodge Dart Swinger 440-4 Barrel.

The black on the right side downscrolled, or even the type of the yellow one below shown on this site?

P.S.: Sorry for the former comment. It was meant admiringly. It's a pity the internet can't show your face in comments. That's why I use smileys.
