26 august 2010, funny, ha, ha

Not much gaiety in the blog, so even better than edinburgh's best, some of my favourite one-liners: people laughed when I said I wanted to be a comedian, they're not laughing now (bob monkhouse); most of us have a skeleton in the cupboard, david beckham takes his out in public (andrew laurence); a good wife always forgives her husband when she's wrong (milton berle); I realised I was dyslexic when I went to a toga party dressed as a goat (marcus brigstocke); the right to bear arms is only slightly less ludicrous than the right to arm bears (chris Addison). I can't attribute the rest: don't take life too seriously, no one gets out alive; beauty is in the eye of the beer holder; the darkest hours come just before the dawn - so if you're going to steal your neighbour's milk, that's the time to do it; never forget that like everyone else, you are unique; before you judge someone you should walk a mile in their shoes - that way, when you judge them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes; if at first you don't succeed, avoid skydiving; and, give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach him how to fish and he'll sit in a boat and drink beer all day. As e e cummings said, the most wasted of all days is one without laughter.
