National Humor Month

Since it's National Humor Month, it's time to break out the jokes.  (Just keep 'em clean, folks.)  And tell us about your favorite comedian(s).

B.E.: Personally, I'm a fan of Steven Wright.  "I spilled spot remover on my dog and now he's gone."  "I read the dictionary.  I thought it was a poem about everything."  "On the other hand, there are different fingers."  I also love Robin Williams.  And Gilda Radner.  But my lifelong favorite has to be Bill Cosby.  My parents had a record of his when I was growing up and I still quote it from time to time.  I even found a copy on CD for my very own, so I could share it with the Kid. 

And one of my favorite clean jokes goes like this: What do you get when you cross a German Shepherd and a giraffe?  A watchdog for the second floor.

JB: Sooooo….did you hear the one about the humor writer who really isn't into comedy? The one who dislikes sitcoms and has never seen a full espisode of Friends, Seinfeld, Two and a Half Men or Modern Family?  Yeah, that's me.

Jokes aren't really my thing, but since B.E. is an avid birder, I thought I'd share the one about The Foo Bird, but then she said to keep things clean…and it's not…in multiple ways, so I'll just link to it. ;-)

Like B.E.,  I like Bill Cosby, but I think I'll have to bestow "Favorite" status on Tim Conway.



Tell us Killer Friends: What your favorite joke?  Make us laugh.

Seriously? At zero-too-early hours before I've even finished my first cup of coffee? A joke??? Maybe I'll come back when my 'humor' has woken up!!

As for comedians, I love Tim Conway and all those that B.E. listed. I went and saw Howie Mandel in person years ago and nearly peed my pants - he is hilarious!!

Heh. I think that one would've been clean enough, JB. Cute joke. Thanks! And that skit always cracks me up. Tim Conway was legend.

Carol Burnett and her whole cast still crack me up! Red Skelton. Bill Cosby. Jeff Dunham. Jeff Foxworthy. And the only joke I can think of on one cup of coffee is the one tacked to my bulletin because it always makes me laugh, even though it's a bit risque.

What does a Scotsman were under his kilt? On a good day, lipstick...

*ducks and runs*

The best five minutes of television!
I'm the worst joke teller ever but I love funny people. One of my favorite funny people is singer Jann Arden. She could easily earn a living as a stand up comic! And comedian Brent Butt! Hysterical.

:chucks a banana at Silver's retreating back: Not quite the cleanliness I was envisioning. I love Jeff Dunham! I keel you.

That's okay, Karyn. You're the reason joke tellers were invented. They need to have an audience. ;o) Never heard of your funny people, but that'll give me something to do on YouTube later.
