Fun in the News...

Do you know what I like, dear readers? I like watching masters at work. I like seeing someone who is exceedingly good at whatever task, working at that task. It really becomes interesting when the task is comedy. Especially when the comedian comes up with something so ridiculous, so outlandish that THEY THEMSELVES can't help but laugh. It's rare when it happens to the master comedians out there, but when it does, it's truly side-splitting stuff. For example, here's a Daily Show clip from 2003, where Steven Colbert is doing a report on an "alleged" sex scandal concerning Prince Charles.

The reason that this comes to mind is because of Colbert's report on the Government avoiding the shutdown and why there is no need for Planned Parenthood.

Dude, it made it ten times funnier that Colbert couldn't make it through the bit without breaking down in laughter. There are times, though, when I have to believe that the rest of the world looks at us here in the United States and shake their heads in disbelief at what passes for government here!


  1. My favorite comdeian was George Carlin, but his stuff was so biting I doubt he cracked himself up. Nice vids!
