I didn't submit anything. Did I? I don't recall doing so. Sometimes things just happen though, that I seem to have done. Sometimes I get blamed for the weirdest things. No, I don't want to talk about it.
It's a good choice, though. I really do like The Funniest Story. I just love Grace. So if I did happen to have submitted this, somehow, well it's nice to see that one of my other personalities has a good sense of humor.
Speaking of which, here's something that makes me laugh. Sometimes I just sit giggling to myself over it:
Understand, I don't think Abbott and Costello are all that funny. Sort of hack, actually. But I heard a routine that just busts me up:
It's not really a joke, so much as a situation. And you have to get the Costello character -- not that it's subtle:
What I object to is Costello's inconsistancy. Sometimes he's the naif, sometimes in on the joke, sometimes tough, sometimes the baby-clown:
And they used the same material as Burns and Allen:
So. Somebody says to Costello, "Have you ever ridden a jackass?"
"Better get onto yourself then."
And Costello thinks that's ever so witty, so he's going to use it.
"Hey Abbott, have you ever ridden a jackass?"
"No, Costello, I never did."
"Then hop on my back."
I'm laughing about it now. It cannot be that funny. But I love it.
