Every Woman I Know Has Sent Me This Link

...and, as a comedy person, I get a lot of e-mails from friends and family, saying "isn't this hilarious?" Often it's not. But I have a soft spot for Mrs. Hughes. Awww, her name is Carol, just like my mom. Apparently she didn't start doing stand-up until she was forty.

Years ago I heard Merv Griffin interview Phyllis Diller, and she said she started doing comedy when she was thirty-nine. I remember saying to myself, ‘I could do that.’"

Nellie recently pointed out the fact that Diller was in her thirties before she began doing comedy, as well, since I continually fight this nagging feeling of "I waited too long to start comedy, blah blah self-defeatingcakes."

It's never too late! Go forth and blossom, funny people! The world needs a good laugh. Rock on, Mrs. Hughes.

She's pretty funny.

I fall victim to the same 'you're gonna love this' email and 9 times out of 10 it's nothing I'd ever find funny. Gotta love the people who think they know your sense of humour.

I know, my inbox is a nonstop flood of mismatched humor and unlikely comedy. But I'm developing a pretty good filter.
