1. Who was your last celebrity sighting? Who was the biggest celebrity sighting?

2. What's for dinner?

3. How hot is it by you?

<<So which comedians DO you enjoy?>>

As I have said before in this thread, I like subtle comedy, play on words and dry humor versus making fun of people type humor.  I haven't seen an individual comedian in years, we used to do them in our 20's.  I do enjoy comedy like Wallace and Gromit, Monty Python and the funniest play I saw in London was the complete works of Shakespeare in 90 minutes.   

I also enjoy the comedy that is often performed on this ivillage board, although so many of the double standards are not subtle.

Jim Gaffigan is loved in my family.  In part because he was so sweet to DD3.  She went to see him when she was in college, afterwards  he was talking to her and her friends,  He asked if they were in college and they said yes. He thanked them for spending their limited funds to see him.

What you mean that spring wasn't really sorry about my television viewing habits?  I'm shocked.  Or do you mean like the high road isn't really a truth for some?   But talk about comedy in those words jams, talk about comedy!

So which comedians DO you enjoy?

Well, in general, if a thread looks like it might be fluff but is started by Spring, Jams or Thardon, it's really only "fluff" and in reality posted to mock someone else or to brag about one of their FABULOUS upcoming plans.

For instance, did you know Springs recently had a major anniversary and will be taking a cruise?  Yes, yes, I know that sort of information would be easy to miss if one didn't happen to read one of 5 or 6 dozen threads in which it was mentioned or highlighted, but it IS true.

You just have to accept the complete and utter lack of real fluff when one of those three authors a thread going in.  I like to play JST BINGO on their threads; I have cards made up and everything.  I considered making their threads a drinking game, but who could afford that kind of liquor bill?

This place needs a "LIKE" button, because I would have liked this mofo before I would have finished reading it.

yes I understand that-- "The Aristocrats" is an old joke that Sagat uses in his act -- it's the joke comedians tell each other b/c its too raunchy for the audience...  and yes I know that Sagat is raunchy - I'm not a prude by any stretch of the imagination I just consider blue humor to be very -- not funny.

are you talking about "The Aristocrats?"   that's an old old joke but yes Sagat is very raunchy

No, I am talking about Bob Saget's stand up comedy act.
