Having found a new blog yesterday (http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/) and having, further, laughed my ass off while reading said blog, I've been giving some thought to all the things that make me laugh, and why. I don't mean to get all Aristotelian on you or anything, I just have a, shall we say, eclectic sense of humor, and lots of stuff makes me laugh. Here are a few of those things, in no particular order:
Friends outtakes. Specifically, the ones involving Ross, a couch going up a narrow stairway, and a set of bagpipes.
The moat scene in The Pink Panther Strikes Again. Just humming the music from this makes me giggle. "Swine moat!"
(sorry, this clip has an ad in front, I hate that)
This, from History of the World, Part I
Damn near anything in Young Frankenstein, but especially this
Monty Python's sketch The Fish-slapping Dance
The Semaphore Version of Wuthering Heights
These twin boys, talking to each other.
and this one, tho he doesn't update it anymore:
(btw, Mil's a tremendously nice guy, we've exchanged several email messages over the past few years)
And, of course, a lot of stuff Seth says and does. Yesterday he told me he had "fifty-five pounds of love" for me.
Oh, and why do these things make me laugh? They're just frickin' funny!
