Good Times

How am I doing? OK, I guess. Sure I have a cold, my wife has a cold, and my daughter is a snot factory. Everything is fine.

Sure I’m losing my sh*t over the latest presidential polls, losing sleep and generally feeling nervous. Everything will be fine, right? My latest plan is to buy a case of beer the night of the election, either for celebration or to numb the pain. Either way, I’m not going to work the next day.

*deep breath*

Anyhow, thanks everyone for the comments on my last post. I’ll get to them soon. In the meantime, did you know a new Mitch Hedberg comedy CD went on sale the other day? Well, you can order it from Comedy Central. You can also listen to a preview of it here: http://goto.thesyn.com/mitch-hedberg/.

Don’t know who Mitch Hedberg is? Start with with wikipedia and then find some of his stuff anywhere you can. The man was a comedy genius. Think Steven Wright.

Here’s some of my favorite Mitch jokes:

  • I had this parrot. The parrot talked, but it did not say “I’m hungry.” So it died.
  • You know, I’m sick of following my dreams, man. I’m just going to ask where they’re going and hook up with ’em later.
  • I like an escalator because an escalator can never break, it can only become stairs. There would never be an escalator temporarily out of order sign, only an escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience.

  1. The Kit Kat candy bar has the name Kit Kat imprinted into the chocolate. That robs you of chocolate! That’s a clever chocolate saving technique. I go down to the factory, “Hey, you owe me some letters.”

    Hole crap, Strug. Thanks for the heads up on the new CD! Off to buy it right now. Lemme get my toolbox aka wallet.

  2. I’ve seen him and liked him but I never knew his name. I like the bit about the headless horseman’s horse.

    And I didn’t know he died! We’re the same age! Or he would have been 40 this year. What a shame.

  3. Don’t despair about the polls, Paul. I really feel like the Palin bounce is evaporating (er, I hope you’re for Obama), and the media is starting to call her on all her crap.

    But it always helps to keep some alcohol on hand! 2004 just about tore me and my husband up. Please, let there not be a repeat…
