One kind of space joke: Why is life on Earth so expensive? It includes a free trip around the sun once a year.
A second: Why did the star go to university? To get brighter (groan…..)
Of course, just Eddie Harris in “Major League” who had this conversation with The Wild Thing:
Rick Vaughn : [Seeing Harris take off his shirt, revealing white stuff on his chest] What’s that sh** on your chest?Eddie Harris : [Looking at his chest] Crisco.Eddie Harris : [wiping it across his head] Eddie Harris : Bardol.Eddie Harris : [wiping it along his waist line] Eddie Harris : Vagisil. Any one of them will give you another two to three inches drop on your curve ball. Of course if the umps are watching me real close I’ll rub a little jalapeno up my nose, get it runnin’, and if I need to load the ball up I just…Eddie Harris : [wipes his nose] Eddie Harris : …wipe my nose.Rick Vaughn : You put snot on the ball?Eddie Harris : I haven’t got an arm like you, kid. I have to put anything on it I can find. Someday you will too.
I am partial to the Hot and Sour…..
Too bad Mom will remember those comments if Heart finds that she needs “Dear Old Mom” to buy her a replacement phone.
I remember a page from either Mad or Cracked ( I think it was Mad) and it was one of those “they’ll say it every time” or “everyone has a relative who….” feature which showed am older woman (probably an aunt or grandmother) telling a kid: “Get off of that couch! You will stain the plastic cover I put over it!” I vaguely remember a friend’s grandma actually saying that to us a few days later and I got in a bit of trouble for not being able to suppress a laugh in front of her…….
The problem with Shannon is that the little dynamo would likely force over 90% of adults to drink as heavily as the other Don Draper did on “Mad Men” and that dude made sure his 3 martini lunches were triples…. Shannon is right up their with Calvin of “Calvin and Hobbes” as far as trying the patience of even the calmest and most serene souls out there. I give Toni and Brad credit for coping so well, many asked to look after the tyke would be on one heckuva bender ;)
Austin Powers as well!
True but then again, I am referring to Luann’s ability to get into avoidable and undesirable situations like Lucy, and The 3’s Company crew always got into, definitely not her comedic value and as an extension that of G&K who do have their moments with story arcs but not with Luann as of late and definitely not the “bwat” Shannon.
Thanks, I checked out a copy on Archive.org last night; it is indeed an interesting read so far. I read Garson’s book “Up The Down Escalator: how the 99% live in The Great Recession” a few years back and I highly recommend it as well!
Sure but I am talking about Luann not the hyperactive dynamo known as Shannon. Luann is now simply a combination of Lucy Ball, John Ritter and Suzanne Summers all rolled into one. She does not have to be around Shannon to end up in a predicament.
