I get lots of forwarded emails that are jokes, pictures, video clips, political commentary, strange and exotic stuff, etc. Some of them are really quite good. I enjoy a good laugh and some of them give me one. Like the one I got this morning showing entertainers when they were young and staring in their major roles and then showing what they look like now. It was interesting, but not that entertaining until they got to the last one. It was a picture of Howdy Doody, remember him? Well, they showed a before picture of him and the “now” picture was a bag of charcoal briquettes. Now that was funny, or do I have a warped sense of humor. I also got an email containing supposedly jokes by Jeff Foxworthy titled “you may be a Muslim”. Not sure if he did say those jokes but they were in his style. Last Saturday morning, while walking through the flea market, I spotted a couple books of the “Far Side” cartoons. Some of them are just plain stupid, but some are really hilarious.
I really can’t tell you what things or jokes I find really funny because I don’t understand myself what I really find funny. I try to see the humor in everything, so when it comes to finding something to laugh about, I do not have tunnel vision. I can tell you what I do not think is funny; jokes on someone that either hurts them emotionally or physically. I do not like the use of profanity, but can ignore it in some cases, like with George Carlin. The old George Carlin made me laugh so hard my gut hurt. I would say that my favorite was Red Skelton. I never missed his TV shows. He was one of kind.
OK, tell me, what type of humor do you like and who would you consider your favorite comedian? You all have a great day today, you hear?
