I Guess I Should Explain...

I don't have a weird sense of humour in the sense that I enjoy practical jokes or pranking people or seeing people get hurt or weird payback scenarios or anything like that. I like smart jokes, and plays on words, and usually, when I make a joke, it's self-deprecating in that I make fun of myself also. I like vintage cartoons, they still make me laugh. I like wonky, irreverent humour, like they did originally on SNL when the cast was John Belushi, Dan Ayckroyd, Bill Murray, Jane Curtin, Laraine Newman, Gilda Radner, Chevy Chase, and Garrett Morris. I like movies with lots of blithering one-liners, and people getting frustrated, like 'Slap Shot'. The story was written by a woman, and is hilarious. 

I liked 'Caddy Shack' for the same reason, lots of crazy scenes that stand by themselves. Wandering through it like a standup tourist is Rodney Dangerfield, cracking one-liners like 'Hey, why don't ya go an' shave yer ***?' and, "I never saw dead people smoke before."

Maybe this doesn't qualify as weird in 21st century sense, so I guess I'm classic weird. I like puppets and slapstick. Who doesn't?

I never found my old school in the least bit funny.

Kinda like mine. :) Old-school comedy.
