Cookie Monster Auditions for SNL

3 12 2010

Everybody’s favorite Sesame Street character tries to achieve every comedian’s dream. I’m pretty sure this is a real viral marketing strategy to get a monster to host. You can join the Facebook group now!As strange as this is, is it really more unusual than the successful Facebook campaign to get Betty White to host? Here’s his hilarious audition tape:

Let me be the first to say there’s always a space on the DSI stage for Mister Cookie.

New (Smaller) Take on a Classic Gag

18 11 2010

Here’s the boring background from Wikipedia:

Pieing is the act of throwing a pie at a person. This can be a political action when the target is an authority figure, politician, or celebrity and can be used as a means of protesting against the target’s political beliefs, or against a perceived flaw — e.g. arrogance or hubris — in the target’s character.

Now here’s the comedy:

Catnip Hurts Everyone

31 08 2010

Last night I watched my girlfriend get her cat high. I was AMAZED.

I knew Catnip existed but never saw the effect it had on my feline friends. Until last night. Azygous was tripping, HARD. I mean, cat pupils were dilated; Z lost control of minor motor functions, like WALKING; and, for a minute, seemed to become fascinated with the intricate patterns in the carpet.

Okay, maybe that last part was my own carryover vicarious trip.

Or it may just be the gateway drug for more Catnaps.

ORDER NOW and Enjoy watching your cat during its catnip trip.

1- Catnip buds: The most potent form of catnip. It is the top of the catnip plant.
2- Catnip leaf and flower: A very potent mixture of leaves and flowers.
3- Catnip Stalkless: Kitty safe format, it is a grinded mixture of leaves and flowers.
4- Catnip Pellet: This no mess format is compressed catnip.
5- Catnip in the Ruff: A mulched format of the catnip buds.
6- Catnip essential oil: Extracted from pure potent catnip buds.

The Onion and Improv Sitting in a Tree

8 07 2010

I’ve suspected for a while that The Onion, a satirical newspaper, had some kind of relationship with improvisation. With articles like this and graphics like this the writers clearly know something about the subculture that is improv comedy. I’ve even recognized improvisers from their Onion News Network videos (not to be confused with DSI Witness News). Here’s Improv Everywhere’s Charlie Todd discussing  how all wrestling fans are actually paid professionals:

But my suspicion has been confirmed by yet another reference to improvisation in this recent video (at the 1 minute 20 second mark):

Who else could know that nerd male improvisers only talk to nerd girls improvisers? Speaking of, if you’re interested in becoming either one of those, Zach Ward’s 101/201 summer intensive has 2 spots left!

How Do You Roll?

24 02 2010

So my wife (Carrie) and I have a frequent battle in our home…

How IS the toilet paper SUPPOSED to go on the roll? I’m a firm believer that the tp roll should go under. Carrie is a proponent of the tp coming over the top. Now, if you asked me why or what my debate points were I would not have a strong argument. I don’t really have any reason other than, It’s just how I’ve always done it. And I’m sure Carrie doesn’t have a strong argument. She just chooses the opposite side because she likes to mess with my OCD.

But a few weeks ago I was blessed (and not by Angel Soft®):

That’s right, an ENTIRE website from Cottonelle® devoted to people sounding off on how they prefer the toilet paper to ROLL! Some of the arguments are great. From having to share a port-o-pottie with 12 other construction workers to preventing finger jams and knuckle scrapes. I’d love YOUR arguments AND your answer…

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor FROZEN RIVER, nor lack of uniform…

23 12 2009

This Holiday Season the US Postal Service works harder than ever to keep market demand for delivery under control. FROZEN RIVER BE DAMNED! And uniforms just slow these old postal workers down. Maybe the new “NUDE” look works for safety issues. Nowhere to hide the gun? Although, due to shrinkage, does that mean some postal workers are hiding a “CONCEALED” weapon?

More news, as its delivered.
