Words of Wisdom from Herman Munster

Perhaps you’ve recently seen this clip from an old episode (1965) of The Munsters. It seems to be having its viral moment, given the chaos that seems to be ever-present these days.

Herman offers a 30-second life lesson to his son Eddie that is timeless. We need more people like Herman; he was one handsome, and upstanding, guy…
