When Descriptions Go Very Wrong!

It was late in the day and I was trying to describe an ex co-worker to my boss. The former employee was a big bearded guy who looked like... well I was thinking of this guy:

Grizzly Adams, you know that bearish guy who lived in the woods and was all rural and crunchy in the 70s TV show "The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams."

But I couldn't think of the actor's name or the name of the show.
The name that came to mind was this guy:

Greg Evigan of the 70s simian truck drivin' TV show "B.J. and the Bear" but I knew that was wrong.

Instead, I just decided to describe the TV show:

Herb of DC: You know that TV show, "B.J. in the Woods."

Female Herb of DC Boss: I don't think I get that cable channel.

Actually, you should pitch that idea to some TV producers. Reality shows are all the rage these days.
