Celebrate a Birthday with Loose Meat Sandwich

One of the quirkiest actors from my early life was Tom Arnold. I loved him in Rosanne and other great shows. Love him or hate him he was a funny guy. 

Tom Arnold was born March 6, 1959 in Ottumwa Iowa. The son of Linda Kay and Jack Arnold. Tom grew up with six siblings. Tom was raised by his father when his mother left when he was just a child. Tom held many jobs including a meat packing plant and attended college where he studied business administration and writing. At the age of 23 he started stand up comedy.

Roseanne Barr would bring Tom in as a writer for her television sitcom. Tom would marry Roseanne in 1990. Tom Arnold would write himself into the show as the charcter Arnie. In 1992 Tom would star in his own sitcom the Jackie Thomas Show It was a short lived show. 

In the early '90s the couple would buy a house together and open a restaurant in Eldon Iowa. The restaurant would serve up loose meat sandwiches. The restaurant like their marriage would be short lived. 
Tom Arnold would go on to star in other movies and shows.
