'The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson': Ed Ames hatchet hits below the belt

Ed Ames was supposedly an expert with the tomahawk, thanks to his role as Mingo on the "Daniel Boone" show. As if throwing sharp objects in an audience-filled studio wasn't dangerous enough, Ames attempted the stunt with a hatchet instead. Aiming for a chalk cowboy outline, Ames threw, hitting the dummy directly between the legs, with Carson quipping, "I didn't even know you were Jewish."
