Ok, friends have told me that I've been insufferably snarky ever since my lame-duck Toyota Camry died it's fifty-seventh death last week. Therefore, I feel it would be theraputic to introduce a positive topic for the consumption of all you Rabblekteers.

Simply: what do you find funny?? Books, movies, TV, comics.... And also include things which aren't meant to be funny but just seem to turn out that way (Mr Day, I'm looking in your direction) Thanx

TV Show, "The Family Guy".

Without question, the funniest thing I have ever seen.

from "The Family Guy":

Bailiff: "Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you God?"

Peter Griffin:" I do ..... ya bastard".


Too Funny!

The first time I ever saw comedian Andy Kaufman: he turned up on the old Johnny Carson Tonight show, playing a bug-eyed simpleton with an unplaceable accent who kept saying "Thengu veddy much" -- he kept it up so long that you started to worry that there really was something wrong with this guy -- and then suddenly Carson invited him to sing -- he got up, turned his back to the audience, ripped some strips off his costume here and there and did something with his hair, turned around, and -- he was Elvis Presley! Really -- dead-ringer, no bug eyes, looked fantastic. He then sang a couple of Presley songs, very powerfully, have never seen a better mimic -- by the end, I was laughing and crying simultaneously just because he was so brilliant -- and then he turned around again, fixed his hair a bit and zipped up his shirt, turned back (bug-eyed), and the instant before he spoke, you knew what he was going to say ... Thengu veddy much.

Gore Vidal followed him on the show that night, and was so choked up with laughing that he -- he! -- couldn't talk for a bit.

Cartman from Southpark.

When I saw "Cartman gets an anal probe" for the first time I was in tears.

Southpark goes way over the top sometimes but I never tire of watching that little fat man...

This article in last Sunday's NY Times magazine had me laughing so hard I almost passed out.

There's an American talk-radio host who has been running the longest continuous hoax on the public airwaves. He invites "guests" on his show -- in fact he's the one doing all the voices -- who express the most outrageous opinions. A "pediatrician" says the diaper industry is a Nazi conspiracy, an "Iraqi" guest suggests that George Bush should wash the feet of Saddam Hussein with his hair.

Listeners believe it all, and call up furious, and the hoax gets weirder and weirder...

Sarcastic, extremely clever comedians - Dennis Miller, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart.

James Carville always makes me laugh out loud.

South Park. Pretty much everything I've ever seen come from those sick, twisted minds of Parker and Stone.

The South Park movie was one of the funniest pieces of celluloid I've ever seen in my life.

The Simpsons have consistently caused me to wet my pants (figuratively), though the show has been losing steam over the past couple of years.

Ivan Reitman is the god of big screen laughs. Ghostbusters is one of my all-time favourite movies.

Jim Carrey's early stand-up comedy work is make-you-pee funny. Not a huge fan of his movies though.

Don McKellar makes me laugh a lot. Twitch City is fantastic. His little indie movie where he's showing a documentary filmmaker around his apartment building is damned funny too. His performance in Highway 61 was great too.

Tomato Nation.

Jeff Foxworthy. And not just his "you're a redneck if" jokes either. This man got it goin' on. You have to check out his Clampetts go to Maui bit on the multimedia section (I hope they play the whole thing).

Third Rock From the Sun. It was (unfortunately this season was its last) a hilarious social commentary. What an concept..aliens come to Earth with all the right equipment but they realize that they have to deal with the unwritten rules known as social mores. Dick (John Lithgow) was the funniest character with his hilarious facial contortions.

Whoever said Family Guy, thanks for reminding me. One of the only reasons worth watching network TV since the Simpsons started going down the tubes a few years back.

Somebody else said Bill Maher was funny; there's a great stand-up performance that he gave on HBO a while back called "Be More Cynical." It's not available commercially, but the audio's downloadable from Napster and like services.

I believe the most hysterically funny comedian out there right now is Eddie Izzard. His stuff is really smart and original ("Cake or death?" "Death...oh I'm sorry, cake." Hilarious!! Oh, you won't get that if you haven't heard it. Just talking to myself). Also satirical newspaper "The Onion" (sample headline: "Desperate Vegetarians Declare Cows Plants").

Conan O'Brien is the only talk-show host whose celeb interviews I can sit through, because they often end up focusing on his own pathetic self rather than the bubbleheaded Hollywoodistas. And his so-stupid-they're-hysterical comedy sketches rarely disappoint. I know I'm forgetting tons, but that will have to do for now.

I'm just watching counterSpin tonight - it's the season finale, and Avi and his guests are switching their political stripes for the evening. But darn it, I tuned in a half hour after it started...rats. I'll have to tune in at 11 and watch the beginning. Now THIS show is FUNNY tonight.

I love the Simpsons.

You won't believe this at first, but trust me: John Kenneth Galbraith's memoir of growing up in southwestern Ontario, The Scotch, is Leacock-level funny -- it takes you a while to realize he's often joking, but then you start to see the wit everywhere.

And have you read Paul Hiebert's Sara Binks?

Billy Connolly - One crazy Scottish gent. He suggests that men wear their grandma's brooch as an idiot filter, or that women slap two pieces of toast together for a purse to screen out jerks. You can rent videos of him live...I saw him at Massey Hall a year ago last May. Laughed til I cried. Also, I like Fuckermann, who are on 89.5 every other Sunday @ 2:50, the tail end of the Nick Beat show, HOWL.

For gut busting laughs, I'll read English humorist John Milton, or put on a tape of "A Clock Work Orange".


.....But seriously folks...

I don't think I've laughed as much for so long since seeing "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" for the first time. A good many of the Monty Python sketches had me rolling too; "The Argument" and "The Dead Parrot Sketch" sticking out in my mind at the moment.

"Fawlty Towers" also had it's moments of comedic brilliance.

"The Simpons" is a good supply of situational one liners you can share with friends, "...burn that seat..." I bet half of you know who said that, why he said it, and are laughing at the mention of it.


I love to see comedic actors on the edge of madness, which is probably why I like John Cleese so much, and why I tollerated the animated reliance of liquid excretion humour in "Ren and Stimpy". Just loved to see that little dog lose it. "Stimpy, yooo EEDIOT!"

Like many, I hate it when Cartman has "authoritah" But they kind of lose me with "Mr. Hanky." Not into scat. I didn't know whether to laugh or take a shower after watching the "brown noise" episode when the messed up teacher accused his dad of not loving him--- because his dad never molested him. That gave me the creeps.

Snippets...

The Bruce Willis character in "Pulp Fiction" with one foot in a horendous underworld, trying to coax his less than worldly girl friend into leaving town quickly. It always cracks me up, him trying to finesse her gently into action while she fusses about cosmetics, or whose bike they are getting away on.

Similarly, the English pilot played by Peter Sellers in "Dr. Strangelove" trying to reason, under fire, with the crazed air base comander gets me rolling everytime.

The look on Cloris Leachman's face when the horses whinnied at the mention of her name in "Young Frankenstien".

Dead pan, or a look can often be enough. Buster Keaton was great at this; a comedian far ahead of his time in his youth.

I saw George Carlin doing the talk show rounds last week. He refuses to be washed up, and had me laughing quite a bit.

I've missed a lot......

Here's a couple of the silliest websites I've seen in a while. I don't know for sure, but I suspect that you need a fairly high-speed connection to use them.

Mad at George Bush? Here's your chance to get even.

Fox Trot can be a howler, as is Garfield

I haven't enjoyed Garfield for many years now. It used to have something of a story-line, and they used to get out of the house more. It's too minimalistisc now. Jon, Garfield and Odie don't really have any personality anymore. And whatever happened to Lyman? Did he abandon Odie with Jon or what?!

Remember the first few Garfield tv specials? They were the best of what I liked about Garfield.

Now, For Better or For Worse and Doonesbury are my favourite comic strips, because the characters actually age. There's a contiunity to the strips. Also, I've always seen a little bit of me in Michael.

Lyman just sort of disappeared in the early 1980s. Dunno why.

I grant that Garfield is getting to the point where it's mostly "How pathetic can Jon get?" every day/week/month. Turns out Jim Davis hasn't hit the bottom of the barrel yet.

Garfield is the Sammy Davis Jr. / Dean Martin of the cartoon world. Working long past when he should retire. If Jon Davis wants to keep cartooning, he should develop another strip.

I laugh at Doonesbury sometimes. My favourites are Peanuts, Calvin and Hobbes, and The Far Side.

Here's just a few items I read online this morning (sorry, I admit the last one is totally mean...):

Scientists in Spain have discovered a fungus that eats compact discs, chewing on the plastic and even the aluminum. Wow, call me old fashioned, but in my day we'd eat the fungus and then listen to the music.

President Bush has named Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham the nations' first official "Vampire Slayer." The vampire slayer's job is to ensure the government doesn't waste energy. In keeping with the TV show theme, Bush also announced that from now on, his Cabinet will be known as "That 70's Show."

The police are trying everything to locate that missing Washington intern. Today, they also started using cadaver-sniffing dogs. These are dogs specially trained to sniff out dead bodies. One immediately took off running, and when the police caught up to it, it was humping Dick Cheney's leg.

Tee Hee!

There is a fairly new comic out there called "Get Fuzzy" about a young single guy living with a cat and dog.

Maybe you need to live with pets to get all the humour but I need to check it out everyday.

I agree with Calinda. For me, Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley is the most original new comic strip around. If you want to experience living with your pets if they could talk back to you, read it! Bucky the feisty "all-for-me" Siamese is the personification (felinificaton?) of your own kitty, and dear old Satchel is an every-dog, sweet, loyal, and not too bright. How their owner or rather human slave Rob copes with it all is what's so much fun. In Toronto the Star runs Get Fuzzy, and so does one of the Montreal papers.

A cartoon which makes me laugh that I forgot to mention previously is called "Zits." Despite it's unfortunate name, it's a pretty accurate depiction and cariciture of day-to-day adolescent life. Which is surprising and cool, since most adult cartoonists seem to portray the teenage years as ficticiously wholesome and unrealistically Archie-esque.

I guess I'm in the minority here because I don't much care for "Get Fuzzy" (it runs here in the Vancouver Province). It's too inconsistent; one moment the dog has the intelligence of a three-year old, and the next he's spouting a bon mot that would make Moliere blush. And that ridiculously evil Bucky cat has no redeeming qualities whatsoever (unlike, say, Garfield, who regularly torments his owner but has a softie side too). We all know felines are difficult and aloof (excepting babble's resident pseudofelinoid entity of course ) compared to mutts. But why would the owner deliberately keep and spoil a critter which seems to genuinely hate him and is basically Lucifer incarnate? I'm an ardent animal-rights'er, but we all have limits; if that cat were mine and regularly pulled that kind of shit, it would probably be taking a moonlight ride over the railing of the Lions Gate bridge in a burlap sack. To each their own though, and the strip seems to be wildly popular. It's drawn very well too, although it bugs me that the animals, when standing on their hind legs, have very pronounced human-like pectoral muscles. Disturbing. Oh, and before anyone else says it, I realize it's just a cartoon, but reading too much into simple things is my hobby...never really got into stamp collecting.

By the by, obviously I'm kidding about the kitty-in-sack remark, lest some uptight sort actually takes me seriously.

Jared, we know you'd never bung Bucky or any other cat over a bridge, but when you asked "why would the owner deliberately keep and spoil a critter which seems to genuinely hate him and is basically Lucifer incarnate?", it reminded me of one strip. In it Rob wakes up in the middle of the night to find Bucky draped around the top of his head. Bucky claims what most people who don't like cats do, that he was merely keeping warm. But Rob has him dead to rights: "You were cuddling!" You can't see cats blush, but Bucky probably is as he stalks out of the bedroom. How's THAT for nit-picking over trivia?! No more cat postings for me.

But just one more thing. We have three cats; two are sweet-tempered, and one is a crusty old curmudgeon -- Bucky could be his mentor. Guess which one provides the most laughter?

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart's just about the funniest thing out there. He interviewed two of the Spice Girls, and Posh was too thick to get his sarcasm, so she said some haughty thing about English humour being more subtle (I know better, having lived there). "You don't get the sarcasm that's been dripping off me? No, you're right, I'm not subtle at all. That's why they call me Freddy Fart Joke."

At the end of the interview, Stewart invited the Spices to spend their week in New York on the guest couch. "It pulls out, you know."

Pure gold.

I also concur with others that Eddie Izzard is frickin' hilarious.
