Quotes by Steven Wright:

Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.

It doesn’t make a difference what temperature a room is, it’s always room temperature.

It’s a small world, but I wouldn’t want to paint it.

What’s another word for thesaurus?

Last night somebody broke into my apartment and replaced everything with exact duplicates…When I pointed it out to my roommate, he said, ‘Do I know you?’

I used to live next door to a fire hydrant factory. You couldn’t park anywhere near the place.

Political Satire on the Mall…

Posted in Current events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 1, 2010 by Mj Rains

Thousands gathered at the Mall in Washington D.C. on October 30th to witness some political satire from these two comedians, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. The rally, so titled The Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear started at noon on Saturday and was broadcast live on  I stuck around for the opening parts, the semi-fun commentating by Stewart and the arrival of Colbert through the stage floor, attired in Evel Knievel costume, from a fictional underground “fear bunker” in a Fenix tube (like the one that was used to rescue the Chilean miners.) Afterward, Father Guido Sarducci, from SNL fame, gave a benediction asking God to send a sign of which religion was the “right” one.  It was quite funny, or so this Wit thought.

All in all, it seemed to be a fun day for all to which CNN called a “Moment of Zen” on the Mall.  How poetic?

People carried signs with quotes like: “Oh no, You Di’n’t! Fox News”, “Biparti – Sanship”, “Obama Cake”, “God hates Nags”, “I respect your opinion,” and my favorite, “Does this sign make me look fat?”

Give me an insanity pill and a fear enema, please.  It is clear…some of us need to lighten up. Perhaps Stewart and Colbert just might have pulled it off.
