My beautiful wife was homeschooling our two sons when I left for work this morning and she was doing a wonderful job, as always. For whatever reason, this video then jumped into my mind, …and made me chuckle.
Our boys are older than the ones in the clip, but I can still relate to every word. We posted this a couple years back and, after watching it again, it seems to hold up nicely.
I’ll reiterate here what I said back then: “…if ALL hip-hop was this entertaining, I’d listen to it waaaay more often…”
One of my all-time favorite comedy routines.
This bit by George Carlin is a remarkably insightful and humorous take on the differences between our National Pastime (baseball) and the Country’s Greatest Sport (football).
But here’s a hint: football wins.
If you haven’t seen it before, this is classic Carlin. Of particular note is the lack of any “language warning”: there’s none necessary, I promise.
Which is just one more reason I love it.
Can’t argue with anything Carol and Tim say here:
First, let me give credit to Piers Morgan, of whom I’m usually highly critical. He conducted a solid interview, and let his guests respond without arguing with them, in and of itself an exceedingly rare occurrence.
But the primary takeaway I had after watching the entire interview was how far modern television has fallen from my youth. As a member of the generation which grew up watching Dick Van Dyke, Carol Burnett, Bob Newhart, et al on TV with my entire family, those shows not only were clever then, they are still clever now.

Comedian Louie Anderson just makes me laugh.
His routines were (usually) perfectly clean, and his animated kid’s show “Life With Louie” was extremely funny, yet sweet. Still can’t understand why they don’t formally release it on DVD: it won two Emmy’s, after all.
Anyway, the following clip is from the ‘Tonight Show’ on Thanksgiving Day, 1987…, and it’s just as funny now as it was then.
Happy Thanksgiving, gang.
Haven’t done one of these for awhile, and after yesterday’s post, I needed a laugh.
So…, here’s nine of ’em :

As a life-long Kansas City Chiefs fan, I TOTALLY understand this. I’ve suffered for decades with Bill Kenney, Mike Livingston, Steve Bono, Elvis Grbac & now Matt Cassel. When you haven’t won a playoff game since 1993 (I still have the Sports Illustrated…), depression becomes a way of life.
I have no doubt that my OWN obituary (hopefully many years in the future) will be quite similar to this one…. God help me.
The Daley Gator
Loren G. “Sam” Lickteig, an Air Force vet and longtime football fan, passed away on Wednesday after suffering complications from both multiple sclorosis and his ”heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs,” according to his obituary in The Kansas City Star.
Lickteig’s daughters said that, although their father didn’t write his obit, he had a great sense of humor and would have loved it. He would even change his shirt from red to black if the Chiefs were losing during a game, they said.
The Chiefs are currently 1-9 for the season, and the obituary went to press on the day the Chiefs lost by a 6-28 point margin to the Cincinatti Bengals.

Wow, it’s been a long week.
The advice I gave these past few days, several times in fact, was that after a week like that, you need to take a day (at LEAST a day) and relax. Unwind. Recharge. Play with the kids. Go to church. Enjoy your family.
There is no better medicine than laughter.
So with that in mind, no politics today. We’ll be back at it next week, I assure you…but not today. However, I do have a couple of things I’ve been saving…
