I still think this 1957 article by Jack Lord which includes some of his art work would be an interesting read....
I'll post it once my friend pretty-peaches gets 700 clicks - which will only take you dear reader 5 seconds and a click - which is vastly less time then it took me to scan this. or photoshop this horrible national lampoon cover.

she's at the middle right and thanks to the people who have clicked

I found this hilarious Hawaii Five-O drinking game online today at
http://www.mjq.net/fiveo/sirah.htm and it contains many references to Jack Lord's Hawaii Five-O character "McGarrett." Try this and see how much hilarity ensues. Feel free to post your results (or your before/after photos of your liver) here - to honor, and in memory of, Jack Lord.

In case the URL expires at some future date, I've decided to paste the game text here with whatever credit(s) are currently shown on the web page. We all know how forgetful this computer interweb thingy can get at times...



Created by Sirah

This game is an outgrowth of one created in my college days, called "McGarrett", an homage to the popular "Hi Bob" drinking game which, everybody noticed, never got anybody all that drunk. It is quite possible to get completely toasted with the "basic" rules alone. If you're feeling especially adventurous, use as many of the subsequent "optional" rules as you like.

Additional note: some of these rules are similar to others posted previously -- great minds think alike.

The article helps answer questions of why Jack would actually throw himself on the floor clutching Sheldon's legs and literally beg not to be fired for an infraction of standards in the middle of 5-0. He'd made it big and was suddenly seeing it all disappear before his eyes, fearing a return to typical actor struggles.
