family sit-com with:
Barbara Billingsley (June Cleaver)
Hugh Beaumont (Ward Cleaver)
and, of course, the eponymous:
Jerry Mathers (Theodore 'Beaver' Cleaver)
usually notable for "the filthiest line in a sit-com":
Barbara Billingsley was asked about June Cleaver's remark,
"Ward, don't you think you were a little hard on the Beaver last night?"
The TV mom replied, "I don't remember saying it, but I must have, I''ve seen it on t-shirts."
refers to a comment by:
Former Chief Judge of the New York State Court of Appeals* Sol Wachtler in 1985**
about the overreaching ability of District/State's Attorneys to achieve indictments before Grand Juries.
*In New York State, the Supreme Court is the lowest, the Appellate Division is next, and the Court of Appeals is the highest.
**seven years after, he was indicted for sexual harassment and stalking... but I digress
"Even a modestly competent district attorney can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich."

Kalli - Beautiful or Shapely
Pyge - Buttocks pigu
