Comedy. I like to laugh.

I don’t laugh at a lot of things that other people find funny. That is what I like about my group of friends, we all find the same things funny. That’s what everyone sees in their friends, right?

To me, real comedy is stuff that isn’t supposed to be funny. I like things that make your squirm a bit, or things that are really really earnest.

Which is why I really like Andy Kaufman. I like comedy that takes things a little too far. These things crack me up! I’ve been spending a lot of free time at work looking up Jerry Lawler, the king of Memphis Wrestling! Don’t ask me why, I just have. I stumbled across some Andy Kaufman videos where he is taunting Jerry Lawler, and it cracks me up. The audience can’t take a joke – they don’t get it! And that’s what is hilarious about the entire thing.

“I want complete silence, then I will get in the ring!”

If you don’t know about the Jerry Lawler/Andy Kaufman wrestling feud, then you can read about it here. OR JUST READ A BOOK!

And as a bonus, here the famous Lawler/Kaufman fight on Letterman.

Motorcycle Safety PSA #1

When driving your motorcycle, never transport bottles of red wine in your backpack. If you are unlucky enough to get into an accident, you could break the bottles causing red wine to spill out of your back.

One of following then might occur:

1. Rescuers focus on your back, thinking that all the blood must be coming from there.

2. They will smell the red wine and think you must have been drunk, thus you might receive a DUI!

3. Bums will wander over and attack your backpack for any wine remnants. 

4. The attractive nurse at the hospital will look at your wine choice with disdain.

Please remember to only transport white wine on a motorcycle. If you absolutely have to transport red wine on a motorcycle, pack fine, soft cheeses and fruits around the bottle to cushion against any possible blow. Also, enjoy these fine cheeses when you arrive at your destination.

For Your Health!
