Humor U: Dec 1st highlights

(Comment if you have any comedy inspiration for me or just hundreds of compliments. Also I have a short clip from the Saturday show. You can easily find it through the google video website interface.)

Charlie the Unicorn

(After watching this video, you'll understand why the street price of cocaine increased thirty percent whilst this movie was in production.)

Brian Regan is the Man

I'm a huge fan of Brian Regan's comedy. If you're not, maybe you haven't heard it yet. link

Now I can also say that I'm a fan of Brian Regan the person. I saw his show live for the first time (totally fresh material) and then waited around trying to meet him . I did meet him (Huzzah!), and he gave the small group of fans all the autographs and pictures that we wanted. He appeared truly flattered. I was amazed. He was hanging out with us for about fifteen minutes.

Great to meet you, Brian.

If you're familiar with the donut-lady controversy, then you'll understand better his autograph to me that I got a screen shot of below:

(I had him sign my Palm 700WX, and I told him he should try to write a joke about it. He said it was definitely the first time he'd ever been requested to do so. The autograph is clarification of a dispute between my friends in which word we disagreed which word was used in the joke: "ladder" or "latter.")

ATTN: NFL Headline Writer

When a journalist writes headlines, one would think that they would be written based on context.

So when I read headlines that said in effect that the Titans surprised the Colts, and that this was incredibly unexpected, I thought, "Not really a surprise to me."

The first, the context that is missing from the brains of the surprised headline-typers is that the Titans, led by Vince Young, very nearly won their last meeting with the Colts. It took one last drive by Peyton Manning to come from behind to beat the Titans 14-13 (and the game was at Indianapolis). Takes some of the head-scratching out of the article, doesn't it?

Other context is that the prior loss to Indy was Young's second NFL. He is growing through a rookie season, and Young has matured with the team that has five wins in the past seven games.

The only surprise is that the Titans had to pull it out with a 60-yd field goal. I would've expected an easier, more decisive finish.

The headline should read, "First Eli, Now Peyton."
