We put a comic on the hot seat. This week’s victim . . .
Oh man, the Lehman Brothers are in troooouble. Do you think they’re totally going to get grounded?
Yes, and it makes me glad I’m a comedian instead of a banker. We’re both struggling now, sucka, and at least I’m used to it. And for the record: if you’re in the know, you pronounce that name “LEE-man.” Only laymen say “LAY-man.”
I defy you to name a more perfect food than the turducken.
How about any food that doesn’t start with the letters “T-U-R-D”? I’ve never eaten a turducken, but I know that the chicken — which is stuffed inside the duck, which is stuffed inside the turkey — is often stuffed with an olive, which is often stuffed with a pimento. So maybe the dish should really be called a “turduckenolivento.” Here’s a suggested emoticon for the turduckenolivento: (((©))).
Hello? Is it me you’re looking for?
I didn’t get this reference, but after a Google search, I discovered that this is a Lionel Richie lyric. So, as it turned out, I was looking for him. My strongest LR association: one summer, during color war at sleep-away camp, the leaders of my team — the White Team — adapted “All Night Long” for our themesong. Me and 200 other little Jewish kids singing, “All night long! Go White!” I wish Lionel could have seen it.
What’s your favorite acronym?
Hats off to “snafu,” which allows you to sneak the word “fuck” into polite conversation.
