I Was Telling My Shrink the Other Day . . .

. . . That I don't like people who aren't funny. That's too strong. I don't dislike them - they're not bad people - I just prefer to surround myself with funny people. I feel no sense of curiosity around the unfunnies as to what might be the next thing they might say when nothing funny ever comes out of them. Maybe they'll give me important tips or advice, but how often does that really happen. Hardly ever, right? So better just to not listen or half-listen.

Then again, crazy is the next best thing to funny. When someone is totally of their nutter, then the do say some interesting stuff, albeit totally insane.

Now, funny with a healthy amount of crazy is really what I like. That's the best of both worlds, and that's pretty much what I am. This is evidence by the fact that I write funny stuff (that's the funny side) and I just said I see a shrink in the title (there you have your crazy).

I just hope I'm as funny as these guys when I'm their age.

Oh but those two are the champions. That's some lofty goal. Thankfully, I think you'll be just as funny. :)

Unfunny people really do kinda suck. I'm the one who can take anything and turn it very crass and dirty within seconds, or just be sarcastic to the point of mean. I've gotten nicer as I get older, but the things I hold back - Oy.

Hah, it's great to see them still at it so many years after the original Spinal Tap film. What's funny is that the characters are perfectly serious about the shit they talk. Would you want to be unintentionally funny like that?

I had a shrink once, but he couldn't make me laugh, so I ditched him. Stole his black leather couch, though. It was nice.

I call those other kind of people fun suckers. They suck the fun out of everything they are near. I don't like those kind of people.

After listening to your podcast, I have no doubts that you will be just as funny in your older days, Dr. Ken. Keep up the good work.
