Laughy Taffy Time

Here we go......

I don't know what to say or where it will lead. I'm sleep deprived and I like it! I'm loopy with a capital L and feel high like when I took my teenage medicine! Instead I don't have to smoke it, drink it or eat it to feel funny. I've always has sleep issues and have adapted to lack of sleep and always had some strange luck!

When I get tired and loopy, I hear Garth Algar say "It makes me feel kind of funny."
Great now I'm quoting a line from "Wayne's World"! In it's defense there are some funny people in it and some funny lines. But you have to like that sort of thing, I appreciate most humor. From the beginning of man, when all we could do was grunt and laugh and point. Uuuughhaaa!

That's another movie I grew up with was "Caveman" it was hilarious to me and my family. I still quote parts out of that film. And that's no "Ca Ca" if you don't like it I won't tell you to "Zug Zug" yourself. If you haven't seen it, its your loss.

I love all the greats, and then some. I feel if you can't laugh in life then you aren't living. Even if you don't like film, there is all sorts of writers throughout history. If you don't read, then your illiterate. No, there are other ways to get laughs. Just step out your doorway and take a gander on how the world is going, and you find some insane humor in it. I say cry tears of joy and laughter, not just tears of sadness.

I grew up with the Three Stooges, Laurel and Hardy, Bob Hope, Abbott and Costello, The Carol Burnett Show, SNL, Hee Haw, In Living Color, Bill Cosby, The Smothers Brothers, Monty Python, Steve Martin, Richard Pryor, Tracy Ullman, Johnny Carson, and then Letterman.

In my later years: Mr Show, Curb your Enthusiasm, Christopher Guest (and Crew), Stella, and Dawn French. Now I'm hooked on The Office, 30 Rock, and too many comics to mention.

Let me know where you get your comedy!

I have seen some in person and will only name a few. George Carlin, Jerry Seinfeld, and Tommy Chong. A few from The Bob and Tom Show and some unknown comics.

I will say that Carlin was at his best, when he went into the subject of kids and parents I cried and nearly went in my pants. Seinfeld was superb, he was on! Even with the problems with the microphone he made it work. I feel the unexpected things can make it even better. Last but not least Tommy Chong, he was multi-talented. He could do skits, tell jokes, and "whale" on his guitar. He could have been as big as Eric Clapton or Robbie Robertson.

Some of you might be saying Robbie Robertson? He was in the Band the group who used back Bob Dylan. Until they split, and I'm glad! The Band is one of my favorite groups.

I would like to bring up the fact that Late Night With Conan O'Brien recently ended I was reminded of how that show was uniquely funny. Jimmy Fallon is doing a good job at keeping the humor alive, considering that is where David Letterman used to call home as well.You can go to and watch clips and shows if your feeling nostalgic. If you don't like it, check out some other shows. I recently got a new lab top and have been making up for lost time. I've wanted a computer for years now and been having fun with it. Now I have to catch up with my computer knows hows and learn some fancy stuff.

Also Try and Funny or

I'm learning slowly, but "Surely". I had to throw an "Airplane" quote in here somewhere and that's no "Jive"

A little shout out to Beth: You were right about Lasso! (You get 100 LWIIS points :)

Things have been good, we just got our first sonogram picture. We love our little Bean, with it's 2 month heartbeat. If it's a boy we will call him Mr. Bean. "Hhuuummmmmuumnnn"

If it's a girl I'm thinking Dia Ria, so when I'm mad at her I can yell "Dia Ria get your butt in the house now!" It does seem that with all the girls being born into our family, it must run in the genes. (Drums being played)

All we hope for is a healthy baby, and no matter the sex they will always be our second little happy accident. Ha Ha (just in case my children see this)

A message to world's youth:

Condoms are not 100% effective!
I already knew this, but please help me pass along the message "Only 99% effective"


Humor that contains sexual content and sexual situations!

Similarities of war and sex:

Sometimes both need hands on experience.
One side in the conflict can take a good licking.
In the situation that you might be performing your service, you might need a gas mask.
Get naked and a physical workout.
Wear a uniform, just pick a size, color, or style.
(Do something you can't do in the field, wear one that glows in the dark.)
To call someone up for Service and requires a salute.
When in battle and sex there is almost always an explosion or two.
Sex without a condom leads to troop deployments.
Just like a terrorist it only takes one to slip into the border and alter your freedoms.
Just like in war the results can put you in a long lasting deficit.
Just like the troops in a war there is eventually a pull out.

Where do I go from there?

I will say thanks for stopping by and wish you all a splendid day!

You were quite loopy ... I don't know why you 'disappeared', but it is good that I am back following you!

My running gag form Airplane! is the Lloyd Bridges character, who picked a bad time to quit just about everything!

Beth said...

LOL, sleep deprivation is an amazing thing, isn't it?

I think you know that we share many of the same things when it comes to humor, but I'll add some older stuff, like I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show, and The Dick Van Dyke Show. I can still watch those (and we watch Andy almost every evening) and laugh like crazy!

Yay, I got points for recognizing the IAWL reference!

But...don't call me Shirley.

;) Hugs, Beth

One of my all time favorites is Robin Williams, and especially in Patch Williams. The clown character is true to my heart :o)

Loopy is a very astute label for this :-). But never quote Wayne's World if you can at all help it.
I am a big Lenny Bruce fan, but he isn't too popular with folks, and I don't believe he made any movies. I would agree that in recent times, Carlin was the best. Some are so dull I sort of don't understand how they get air time.
