Only one thing to do on such a crazy Monday. Come home and kick back with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s (new flavor: Vermonty Python, it has chocolate cows and cookie swirl). Sweet.
Have you been watching The Office? I LOVE this show. I don’t think there could ever be another show on television that makes me laugh that hard, while also simultaneously groaning and clutching my head. Oh wait, yes there is. Banzai! That show only aired a few times, and I miss it. It was totally offensive to Asians and that was probably why it got taken off the air so quickly but man oh man. There was one scene where they attach helium balloons to a chicken to see how many it would take before the chicken lifts off. Then the announcer exclaims: “The chicken! It hover!” And the answer was like 78 balloons or something. Then the camera remains still while the squawking chicken slowly floats out view.
And then the epitome of bad taste. They decided to find out the answer to the question: “Is Harry Potter a virgin?” The way that they found this out was to take a Princess Diana doll, strap it to a parachute, and drop it from an airplane. Two large surfaces were created on the ground, one marked “yes” the other marked “no”. Princess Diana was headed directly toward yes, but then at the last second swerved! and landed in “NO” And the announcer was yelling “Harry Potter! Nooooo! He not a virgin!”
I was sideways on the couch at that point, howling. Oh, it was hysterical. Bad bad taste, but I couldn’t help it.
Crazy Monday. On days like this, you have to know what makes you laugh and seek it out.
