Two camels are out in the desert. One says to the other one, I don’t care what anyone says, I’m thirsty!
That’s one of my all time favorite jokes. Why? I don’t know. I just think it’s really funny. The first time I heard it was when Johnny Carson told it on the Tonight Show. He ended up doing the soft shoe that he was so famous for because the studio audience didn’t get it.
So, 300 blogs. More, if you count the pieces I wrote on blogspot. Am I bragging? No! I’m just amazed that I have such weird things to write about. I guess it helps to be a comedian. We have a tendency to view the world in a different fashion than most.
For example, when I was a young comic, I performed at The Laugh Factory in Hollywood a lot. Before arriving at the club, I would always stop at a nearby 7-11 to get a cup of coffee. One night as I was walking down the aisle, I saw a round box of Quaker Oats on the shelf. You know, the one with that old guy’s picture on it, and I instantly thought, “Wow, I wonder how long that guy has been missing?”
25 years later, I still tell that joke and it still gets a big laugh. My point is that the blogs are full of my observations of life. A slice of life, as they call it.
I write most of the blogs on my trusty Samsung smart phone. That way, I can write while sipping on a cup of coffee while relaxing in my recliner. Ideas seem to come to me better that way.
I think of things like, why is there imitation crab meat? Can that really be good for you? Come on, it’s whitefish, colored with some red dye and injected with some concoction that sort of tastes like crab. Ugh.
As a comedian, I do imitations of people, so when I see “imitation crab meat”, I think of fish auditioning for the part. Like maybe a tilapia saying, “Look, I can swim sideways, too! Watch me roll around in this butter!” Whitefish got the part. That’s show biz.
It always cracks me up when I hear someone who bought the fish or ordered it at a restaurant say, “Oooh, this tastes fishy.” YOU BOUGHT FISH! What did you expect it to taste like?? You don’t see people buy a steak and complain that it tastes too “beefy”, do you? If you don’t like the taste of fish, don’t buy it!
OK, so maybe you get the idea that the reason I can come up with something new most everyday (Sometimes if I don’t feel well, I will reblog a popular one) is because I am basically out of my mind.
Thank you to all of my readers and followers who find what I write to be interesting and/or entertaining. Some probably read it just to see what junk this moron will write today. Thanks also to my international readers. It’s always fun to see how many people in various countries read the blog.
So, again I say thank you all so much!
See you tomorrow.
