1.  Are you grouchy?
Inspired by a today show segment this morning, The actual youtube clip I got from my sister a couple weeks ago, Lol:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3v98CPXNiSk

2.  What kind of videos do you like if you rent them?

3.  How do you like your eggs?

So funny, I don't think I ever laughed so hard and I agree, what a great way to introduce Shakespeare to kids.

Do you like comic books, have you ever read Asterix?  That would be another example of the type of humor that I really enjoy.  I have read the ones I own tons of times and so of my kids.  Hysterical books.

"What's funny about the term, "family film" mops? I'm not following... " -------- I find the term slightly funny, because we never watched films as a family, at least not until dd was big enough to watch grown-up films.

How come? You never took your dd to a movie when she was a child?

Ok, Was there anybody your DD watched her movies with when she was young?

"How come? You never took your dd to a movie when she was a child? " -------- Yes, sometimes I did, and a few times her father did. But we did not both go along because the child wanted to see a movie. Also, we usually had her take some of her friends along, so she would have company. IOW, we were only there to supervise. I also started quite early sitting in the lobby, so I wouldn't have to see the film, and by the time she was 11-12, she went with her friends.

Many if not all of the movies we go to the theater for are family ones, From Pooh Adventures when our kids were real small to Tangled, Spiderman, Marley and Me and Oz.  There are some classics like Bambi and Beauty and the Beast we still watch on video, Ha.

I like humor that is sexually toned or even bodily-function toned, when it's done in double entendres or innuendo or with puns and the like.  I don't like outright, blatant, in-your-face sexual jokes.    I can't think of any examples at the moment however.

I love Jim Gaffigan and Augie Smith and Mike Birbiglia and Drew Hastings and Tim Bedore and Costaki Economopoulos and a lot of the other comedians that Bob & Tom feature - until they get to the outright raunchy ones.

no Argo is not at all sanctimonious - in fact its a very very tight film -- I mean I know exactly how it ends and I was literally shaking at the end of the movie from the suspense.. very very well done indeed.  I also enjoyed Silver linings Playbook and Perks of Being a Wallflower -- we like to go on Oscar nominated movie watching binges every winter!

Oh and just a note that I'm so so so glad I got to see George Carlin before he died.
