My good blog friend, Edie, left SUCH a nice post and AWARD for for me on her BLOG.
She said my blog was funny? I had no idea. This is supposed to be a very serious blog recounting the life of a typical modern housewife/firefighter. Although I knew there was drama and suspense in my blog, I had absolutely no idea that people came to me for comedy. Comedy? What an awesome concept!
"Comedian-a person who amuses others by behaving in a comic way. an entertainer who tells jokes, sings comic songs." (hhmmm, link, link, everybody link, linking on computers is makin' me think. Click this, Don't click that, can't you learn to link?)
"Comedienne" (from a 1953 dictionary) " a woman comedian"
"Comedo- 1. glutton, 2. a plug of dirt and fatty matter in a skin duct"
Why would they put such a yucky word in the dictionary right between comedienne and comedy?---other than the fact that it falls there alphabetically? I'm going to change that. From this day on, whenever I use the word "comedo" in my day to day life (as that word does typically come up at least once or twice a day), I am officially changing the spelling of it to Komedo.
(hold please while I post an e-mail to Webster so he can officially fix it for future dictionaries)
OK, I'm back.
Comedy....I think that could be fun! I could write comedy. That would be something new and fun.
Funny....I could be funny....maybe...
"Good evening ladies and gentlemen.
A funny thing happened to me on the way to the computer....."
hhhmmm, I think that's been used.
"Good afternoon ladies and germs...."
already been done.
COMEDY. Comedy. comedy. CoMeDy. Comedy. Comedy. COMEDY. Comedy. Comedy. comedy, comedy, comedy, comedy, COMEDY!! Comedy, Comedy,Comedy, COMEDY, comedy.
PRESSURE. This isn't as easy as I thought it would be. HHmmm, I think I'll try this a different way.
"Teacher: Jason, go to the map and find North America.
Jason: Here it is!
Teacher: Correct. Now class, who discovered North America?
Class: (in unison) JASON!"
"How did the giant's wife know that Jack was coming? She could hear Jack and the beans talk!"
"What sound does a chicken crossed with a cow make?......Cock-a-Doodle-MOO."
You aren't laughing.....(starting to sweat) According to Alberquando's JOKELOPEDIA , those jokes should have you cracking up.....I know I feel like I am.....cracking up that is.
Ok, I have one of his other joke books.
"What do you call an elephant that never washes?.........A Smellyphant!!!!!!
I GIVE UP!!! I can't take the pressure! I'm sorry but if you came to me for comedy I cannot do it. I'm going back to my old writing style. Just the typical mundane, day-to-day, normal, routine, PROSAIC (is that where they got the idea for the name of prozac?.....not that I would know), everyday, commonplace, banal, ordinary......OK, PUTTING AWAY THE THESAURUS NOW......writings of your typical housewife/firefighter.
Thank you.....Thank you very much...........
