Laughed until I cried

Thank Drudge Report for this. Someday soon we well see cartilage sticking out of that nose. Cartilage covered by a thin layer of plastic. Upon a second look, maybe that is cartilage sticking out the tip of Michael's honker already. This guy just needs to throw himself off a sufficiently tall building.

Bob Newhart

Last night on PBS television I was very fortunate to come across the presentation of the annual presentation of the Mark Twain prize for American Humor. It was being presented to Bob Newhart who really is a brilliant and influential comedian. Trust me, he is. Ever hear his telephone call bits? The best part of the show last night was the appearance by the Smothers Brothers. Not many people know this but I LOVE the Smothers Brothers. Few things make me laugh harder than Tommy Smothers stammering excuses for his tom-foolery. Like seeing Bill Cosby on Letterman a couple of months ago, it was heartening to see these guys onstage just being funny.
