What is it that you find funny?

Humour is somewhat underated. Definetely not enough of it.

I always found the guiness book of world records to be a unlimited source of humour. This is what I mean.

Now the above link isn't from Guiness.

Back in the 1970's whenever I got my hands on the latest edition of world records, I would flip through the pages for a good laugh!

Here's another

I'm sure many employers are always on the look out for world records potential applicants may have.

This gave me a good laugh -- song by They Might Be Giants:

The Communists Have the Music

 

I got handed an Ayn Rand sandwich
straight from a can it tasted so bland
I asked a lass to pass me a glass
of Engel’s Conditions of the Working Class

right away they dragged me to the committee
to explain my un-American activity
they’re gonna see they made a mistake 
if they’d only let me play my mixtape

I’m not partial to the martial
or the plutocrats in their beaver hats
and the fascists have the outfits
but I don’t care for the outfits
what I care about is music
and the communists have the music

I hear a melody
and just as suddenly
I know who I’m
supposed to be

I don’t need a rationale
to sing the Internationale
I only need to plug in the headphone jack
so I can listen to my backing track

I’m not jealous of the zealous
or anarchics with guitar picks
and the fascists have their outfits
but I don’t care for the outfits
what I care about is music
and the communists have the music
yes the communists have the music
oh the communists have the music

I hear a melody
and just as suddenly
I know who I’m
supposed to be

I’m not partial to the martial
or the plutocrats in their beaver hats
and the fascists have the outfits
but I don’t care for the outfits
what I care about is music
and the communists have the music

Back in the day I loved watching 'shred' videos on Youtube. And the Farting Preacher.

I still think Carlin was a genius. Especially as he grew older and grumpier. His material wouldn't fly here though.

Since I've lost my sense of humour.
