What Makes Me Laugh

Today a friend asked what I find funny. Great question but really hard to put into words. I know I’m not a fan of potty humour or slapstick, but as always it seems easier to say what I don’t like than what I do like. But here are some things I know make me laugh.

Wit (touched with sarcasm)
Play on words “I bring you flours” (from Stranger Than Fiction)
My friend Dan's Blog - Honk if you're a Knob
Everyday foibles
Seeing something ordinary in a new way
Fainting goats
and …

my dog Cass

In a Paris hotel elevator:
Please leave your values at the front desk.

In a Rhodes tailor shop:
Order your summers suit. Because is big rush we will execute customers in strict rotation.

Advertisement for donkey rides in Thailand:
Would you like to ride on your own ass?

In a Budapest zoo:
Please do not feed the animals. If you have any suitable food, give it to the guard on duty.

In a brochure of a car rental firm in Tokyo:
When passenger of foot heave in sight, tootle the horn. Trumpet him melodiously at first, but if he still obstacles your passage then tootle him with vigor.

That BLOG was funny. Too many things to comment on but that Tokyo rental car brochure was hilarious.

Chris Farley cracks me up every time. I like Jack Black in Nacho Libre and the movie Napoleon Dynamite. I still haven't been able to figure out if I like Craig Ferguson or not...
