Nipsey Russell Estate Releases Volume Of Previously Unpublished Couplets

LOS ANGELES—Nipseyan scholars were jubilant Monday following the announcement that the Russell estate had consented to publish the last remaining archive of unpublished verse from the Match Game and $10,000 Pyramid star. "Today is a historic day for true admirers of short, playful poetry," said Nipsey Russell heir and legatee Nipsey Jr. "With the addition of these long-lost couplets, Mr. Russell's masterful oeuvre is at last complete." Among a number of other treasures, the volume promises complete drafts and notes for the seminal 1979 work, "If you date a girl from Three Mile Island/ You'll have more exciting nights/ You can see just what you're doing/ Even after you turn out the lights."
