In 1982, my roommate David Hyde came up with a sketch comedy gag called "Siddharta and Hutch":
"Quick Siddharta, we've got to catch those criminals!"
"You go ahead, Hutch. I will meditate. And fast."
"But what about those diamonds?"
"Do not worry, Hutch. In time, all things will come to their proper destination."
Just turned on "Comedy Inc.," apparently an Aussie sketch comedy show, and there it is: "Gandhi and Hutch."
Those darn Aussies! And only a year before I was finally getting ready to steal the idea myself!
