July 4, 2010
On the Fourth I am reminded of what makes this country so great. In the words of Jack Handy: "if you rob a bank, and your pants fall down, it's okay to laugh. And let your hostages laugh too, because, come on, life is funny."

The Americans Who Make This Life Funny

Yes, I really appreciate the humorists this country has produced. So here are a few of the people who really make me laugh: Mark Twain, Teddy Blue Abbott, Will Rogers, Billy the Kid, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Garrison Keillor, The Coen brothers, Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Chris Rock, George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Gary Shandling, John Belushi, John Candy, Robin Williams, Steve Martin, David Letterman, Paula Poundstone, Jerry Scott (Baby Blues and Zits), Gary Trudeau, Glen Beck, Lewis Black, Rodney Dangerfield, Phil Hartman, Steve Carrell, Wonderful Russ, Wendy Shaw, Ed and Carson Mell, Dan the Man Harshberger, Robert Ray, Charlie Waters, Steven Craig Burford, Wayne Rutschman, Mundo, Paul Andrew Hutton, Kathy Radina and Deena and Thomas Bell. Humor Masters all. Thankyou all for making this planet a lighter and brighter place.

"The Russian spies tried to blend in. They were acting like Americans. As a matter of fact, for two weeks they were pretending they loved soccer."
