Tim and Eric
When Hillary Clinton takes off her mask at night, what do you think is underneath?
Mrs. Bill Clinton, the wife of Bill Clinton. Bill Cinton’s wife. The wife of Bill Clinton and the former first lady of the ’90s. Over the HILLary, the Hill. The Larry.

Baseball season is here, so it’s time for fantasy baseball! If your fantasy baseball team were made up entirely of fantasy creatures (for example, unicorns, elves, mages), what would they be, and what positions would they play?
Robin Williams, Mork, Popeye, Bicentennial Man, Jack, Peter Pan, Dr. Adams, and Garp. Well, Garp is the coach, so he can choose the positions for the team.

Who's the best choice to be John McCain’s running mate?
Kenyans are fast runners. They have endurance and can keep up with Mr. McCain. (Note: it’s Josh McCain, right? You might want to double-check that.)

An article was just published in the Boston Globe saying that elderly people in Massachusetts are falling down much more than ever before. Why do you think old Bostonians can’t stay on their feet?
What is a Boston globe? Is it different from a regular globe? Is it like Boston baked beans versus regular baked beans? Perhaps it’s the globe-shaped nature of the city to cause people to fall down.

Why are you looking at each other like that?
We are both very afraid of each other and what the other one might do at any moment’s notice. . . . Don’t!

    If only there were some way to watch a con-artist houseboy give his cougar sugar mama a squirming reach-around, charm the pants off a candy-necklace string of countless empty-eyed Hollywood stick figures, lose his heart to an untouchable social chameleon, and, in the process, find himself .
  •   NORTHERN EXPOSURE  |  July 29, 2009
    While New York is grittier, Los Angeles juicier, and Boston is wicked smahter, for some odd reason it is Montreal that, for two weeks every summer, becomes the epicenter of the comedy universe.

    Warm weather is supposed to be accessorized by lackaday, by a breezy sensibility best enjoyed with a frosty tall boy in one hand, the sloppy product of a back-yard barbecue in the other.
