Some of my best friends

People who claim to be colorblind say there’s no difference between Black and white people but I call bullshit. I can name three differences right off the bat. First, the darker your skin the better you look when you go bald – less like a peeled egg. Number two: the potato salad. My experience has been that Black people potato salad is smaller bits, almost mashed, while white people potato salad is more chunky. I like it either way. And then third is how much less likely it is for a white person to get shot dead for a burned-out taillight.

What my brain does when I'm not using it

First it’s art, then it’s craft, then it’s shtick.

Humming into a pocket comb is one of those things that sounds good on paper.

At its extreme, a lack of integrity can be so absolutely guileless that it’s actually a form of authenticity.

Pete Best, Stu Sutcliffe, Brian Epstein, Murray the K, Billy Preston. By my count, Yoko is the 10th Beatle.

Pretty disappointed to learn that a squirrel gun is not at all what I had imagined.

I have all the symptoms of hypochondria.

Holy crap! I just realized that it’s called a halter because it stops the horse.

Know Free Lunch

So you’re walking through the park and some people are having a cookout. The tables are loaded up and everything looks and smells incredible. Somebody sees you standing there and they say, “What are you waiting for? Make yourself a plate.” So you do; there’s so much to choose from and it’s all delicious. And next time you walk past this big cookout, you make yourself another big plate. It gets to be a regular thing – it’s actually your favorite place to eat. So, the question is, when are you going to bring a dish?

That, friends, is an analogy.
