Greg Veis: You Tube Hunter Explores...Humor
Listen, life is short and if you, like me, work next to a skyscraper being put up by drunkards it could be shorter. That's why we have to relish in a little light-hearted fun from time to time, eg. going to the beach or eating popcorn with our toesÂ or seeing a Dave Barry column in your paper, refusing to read it, and then ritualistically burning it using your mother's nail polish remover as igniter fluid. There's really no limit to what we can do if we try, and this clip, reinforcing the week's theme of bonhomie and good cheer, is evidence [beware: bad language]:
And so is this video, created by the unlikely—and largely unfunny--internet sensation Liam Sullivan:
Here's the first clip that comes up when you type "funny" into YouTube's search. And here's the first thing you need to know about it: unless you're a 37 year-old divorcee or the type of person who really loves Family Circus, you are not going to find it the slightest bit funny:
If human misery is more your speed, these two should do the trick:
[Hat tip to reader DDW for those two clips, and for the hole in my heart that festers more with each moment we're apart.]
[Actually, reader DDW is just my roommate. Pretty good guy. I'll probably see him when I get home from work tonight.]
And, finally, a wonderful bit of collegiate humor from Dartmouth. This might be one of the best stunts ever perpetrated on a college campus. Three cheers for these guys. Honestly.
