I’m looking for funny and I need your help! I’ve exhausted my current humor collection. You can only watch and read the same funny things so many times.
And we all know that it’s very important for people who are trying to get healthy to do a lot of laughing. I think it’s because laughing sends the signal to your body that you are jolly and should therefore live forever. Like Santa Claus.
Barrett and the cats are doing their part to keep me entertained — Barrett makes me laugh whenever he gets a free minute and the cats have perfected their humorous bed climbing antics. Harpo likes to sit at the top of the bed frame and taunt Pumpkin who then climbs the bed curtains with a lot of gusto and style much like Errol Flynn only to get whapped in the face by Harpo’s claws when he gets close to the top which then causes Pumpkin to do a quick sneak attack by whipping to the other side and nipping Harpo on the butt. This is really quite hilarious and can go on for quite some time. They never seem to learn each others’ tricks.
As the cats and Barrett can’t entertain me 24-7 what with Barrett working and the cats doing important things like napping, I need some funny stuff to read or watch. Ideas for pretty much any form of entertainment are welcome and tv series or prolific authors that will keep me going for a while are especially appreciated.
Here’s a list of some things I’ve found funny recently (by no means a complete list just what came to mind today) because it’s usually easier to look at something someone likes and then say oh, if you like that you might like this etc. and so on:
Books — Jeeves and Wooster, Calvin and Hobbes, Paddington Bear, and Meg Cabot and Louise Rennison novels. I’m reading Portrait of Dorian Gray right now and I thought it was going to be funny like The Importance of Being Earnest but either it isn’t an Oscar Wilde comedy or I’m missing something. Possibly because I’m reading it via Stanza on a tiny iPhone screen?
Movies — Keeping Mum and Death at a Funeral both cracked me up and lately I’ve gotten a kick out of old comedies like Bringing Up Baby
TV — Jeeves and Wooster (they are funny both in print and on screen), Gilmore Girls, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and sometimes Bones (I shut my eyes during the gross parts)
Glancing over this list, it looks like I’m a sucker for banter.
If you have any idea, please post in the comments!
