geoff uses reason and examples and shit.  All I do is call Bell a “pussy” and fling poo.

So, you know, we’ve got all the bases covered.

I can’t elaborate.

But I’m so impressed with that kid I could just bust.

UPDATE:  I know, I’m just being an emotional dad.  But she did really make her dad proud.

I’ll shut up now.

What is “funny”? January 27, 2007

I’ve often been asked, since everyone loves my sense of humor, “Dave”?  they say, that’s what they say, “what is ‘funny'”?

I think about the Brothers Karamazov and the timeless questions Dostoeyevsky poses about the essence of truth, the existence of God, and the nature of mercy and salvation.  I’m particularly moved by Alyosha’s “speech by the stone”, which leaves to the reader these answers, and merely implores us to love one another and never forget Ilyusha.

That one always gets me.

Sometimes it tickles me that Samuel Clemens was born in Florida Missouri.

That’s pretty darn funny.

But if I had to pull it all together, be a “philostopher” as the late Frank Zappa called it, I’d probably say this is the heart and soul of humor.

Mel Brooks said “Tragedy is when I cut my little finger.  Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die”.

I think he’s full of shit, but I don’t have any movie credits so I’m willing to consider alternative points of view.

This one has everything.  Raw oysters.  Guns.  Pathos. 

More humor below the fold.
