Surfing through the good offices of BlogExplosion.com early this morning, I happened once again (and shame on me, it’s been on our blogroll for some time) on a blog that, while not updated all that often, is absolutely worth the wait.
Tony Calabrese is a very funny man. Exhibit A:
Thirty Years… Thirty Years… In a Row….

It’s been awhile so this is a little long.
That’s how long I’ve been married.
In a row.
We went back to Maui for our 30th wedding anniversary. That’s where we spent our honeymoon. It’s also where we went for our 25th wedding anniversary.
Some people say I like returning to the scene of the crime.
Captures the (long married) human condition quite aptly. Please read on.

As I commented at the scene of the crime, Wow! I Wish I Could Write Like That!
And now for something completely different…
While in a humorous mode, if not mood, I cannot let the week complete without acknowledging the death (absolutely not the passing!) of George Carlin, absolutely the most influential stand-up comedian of our time, making the world safe for Jerry Seinfeld, The Simpsons — anybody who works to be funny owes George Carlin.
And few have or had the ability to couch incisive and biting social and political commentary in such totally funny terms. To be funny about some of the most serious issues and challenges the world faces is not mere talent, it’s genius.
Many obituaries and appreciations were published this week. I’d like to simply leave you with a snippet of his oeuvre. [Caution — if you’re under the age of five, you may encounter words you’ve never heard before. Clicking is optional.]
Thanks to the video record, George Carlin remains a very funny man.
LOL has pretty much lost its meaning in the overuse by everyone eight to eighty of texting jargon. But for both our funny men, small scale but potent, and classic for the ages great, I laughed out loud today.
Very excellent therapy.
It’s it for now. Thanks,
