The Ed Ames Tomahawk Incident on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.

Memebag wins!

It was indeed the infamous incident in 1965 where actor/singer Ed Ames - who played "Mingo" on the TV series Daniel Boone - showed off his tomahawk throwing skills on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Of course, what happened made it one of the most-remembered moments in TV history:

The bit was even parodied on Saturday Night Live with John Belushi playing Ed Ames attacking the board.

New game next week!
