    Love Love Love Stand Up Comedy

    A good stand up comedian is my instant remedy when I'm feeling low. There are many I'm into but Bill Hicks has been my absolute favourite for years now. I also love George Carlin and have seen all his routines. I recently discovered (or found out about, rather) Joe Rogan. He's...

    Went to see Rodney Carrington last month in

    concert. Wasn't as funny as he use to be, considering him and he's wife got divorced and him falling into a depression. I use to enjoy his comedy, it seems he has fallen off. Hopefully he can get back on track, because he hilarious in the beginning.

    About this time, someone is telling you to get

    on the plane. "Get on the plane, get on the plane." I say, "F--k you, I'm getting in the plane! In the plane! Let Evil Knievel get on the plane! I'll be in here with you folks in uniform. There seems to be less wind in here."

    Steve Martin's 5 Christmas Wishes

    The very existence of flame-throwers proves

    that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.
