  I love it when certain comedians accidentally let it show how intelligent and well educated they are. They're up there going from one punch line to another and then suddenly they make some obscure reference to an English romantic poet or a Chinese philosopher or an Italian astronomer... and then very casually and carefully work their way back over to popular culture and the latest political scandals.

And I'm saying to the TV, "No, no, more esoteric literati humor! I want to continue congratulating myself for laughing at it!"

Oh, you mean like Larry the Cable Guy ?

  I am not familiar with Larry's act, but whether or not he makes those odd intellectual slip-ups of which I am fond, I imagine that to have become as successful as he is, he still must be quite a bit smarter than he looks.

You are correct about his intelligence, but he really doesn't make any intellectual slip ups in his routine.
I was trying to be sarcastic. I must have missed my mark.

Dennis Miller immediately came to mind when I read this post.

Somebody called me the "Dennis Miller of Design" the other day. I didn't know how to take it at *all*.

My fault. Whenever someone is being sarcastic and I can't think of anything in the same vein with which to respond, I tend to play dumb and treat the joke as a serious statement.

Wickedness radiates off of him.

Yeah, you might want to get that hand looked at. You might have caught a little something from him.

  I don't get the appeal of going around shooting animals you don't need to eat and who aren't eating your crops, but I get that hunting helps control the deer population and ordinarily I maintain a comfortable indifference to hunters.

Until an albino doe shows up in my area. Then all hunters can go to hell.

  P.S. I'm not ignoring you Hif, I'm just reflecting. Pepe LePew IS cool! I think my hand is okay but I might have psychological damage. I like your avatar.

It was WARM today, oh my gawd!

  I am obsessed with flirting with Starbucks coffee girls, it's a big thing for me to come on here and admit that, Starbucks that is not the flirting.

Starbucks girls are among the best flirters in the world and a lot of them are really hot, even if they're not in the real world. I think it's because people just look good in black.

I once dated a Polish Starbucks worker when i was in the UK, she was lovely, had red hair and liked (of all fucking things) Led Zeppelin, she had a massive sexual attraction to Robert Plant also.

I lost contact with her after i moved back to Ireland a few summers ago which was a tragic shame really.

That is my daily reflection.

Also, Hello GT bitches, it's good to see ya'll again!

  Sometimes I wish I weren't so damnably certain that people are intelligent and good, and that left to their own devices will more often than not, make the right choices, and all things being equal human happiness and quality of life generally increases over time, and always has - and so on and so forth, sunshine and rainbows. If everybody thought this way and never got fired up when they saw something wrong with the world then all that optimism cancels itself out, now doesn't it?

I should be more terrified and outraged, like the rest of society.

  I keep hearing on the news that North Carolina's coyote population has exploded in recent years. As if this were something be concerned about. What I want to know is, where are all these coyotes every night when the rabbits are making a three course meal out of my bluebells?

I hate rabbits. Hate. Vermin. Not cute at all.

  I'll come out to where you're from, give me a crossman and a crate of beer and not only will you not have any rabbits within a week, you won't even need to feed me.

If i could distill rabbits brains into booze, all i'd ever come back for was more ammo.

  My dreams have made absolutely no sense for the last six months or so.
Ex. in a segment last night, there was debate about the existence of Choke's secret twin. What the crap, dude?!

  What did the Gestapo officer say to the clock?

Ve hev vays of meking you Tock.

But seriously


I dreamt the other night about all these horses running across a field in the middle of an electrical storm and the sky was all wild with lightning and the grass was all really dramatic and black and blowing in the wind.

Me and my brother were sitting in a shack that looked a little like me grandads house. My grandad died before i was born but that litle house was at the time a workshop in the grounds of my uncles house who built a new build on the land as the old building was little and freezing and 250 years old.

In the dream the little stone house was still there with it's cracked windows and green paint frames and there was a fire in the hearth but the only other furniture was a table 2 chairs and a few sleeping bags on a pile of straw. There was also a pile off food in rucksacks, tins and stuff. Outside was all wild and everything was as it would have been when this house was built maybe.

My friend Aisling was asleep on the sleeping bags and she looked gorgeous, her hair was longer and really blonde and she had a dress on like velvet or something and i wanted to wake her and have sex but of course my brother was there spitting in the fire, i wasn't angry with him, i was glad we were all safe.

Me and him were watching these horses and stuff and i was like "It's fucking beautiful Ja," and he was like "No Sean there's something up with it, it's not right."

And i felt in my heart it was right, it might be dangerous or frightning or plain old fucking weird but it was the absolute right thing to happen at that time.

And i was looking in the sky and i had this sense that we'd lost so much by this point but i knew some people were safe.

And everytime i looked back there were more and more horses, there must have been over a thousand of the fuckers, belting across this field like they were chasing a truck full of horse porn or something.

And my brother kept asking what was after them but i thought they were going towards something.

Then he was like, "I'm going for a walk in the woods Sean" and i was like "You're off your fucking head mate, it's an electrical storm." and he said "S'alright i got rubber boots on."

and off he goes.

Oh I wish but I already have a flemish giant and a wild hare :(

And as for these dreams! That is interesting because I just finished not one but two books about twins. But no, I do not have a secret one, unless it is secret from me. Nice to know I'm in someone's thoughts though haha

That's pretty cool actually. I always think it's neat when people keep pets other than the typical cat or dog.

No worries though, I think the pepper spray I'm using on the plants now is adequately slowing down the destruction.

Daily reflection: I had one when I started this post but now it's gone.

I love the tone in which I read that.

There was no appearance or real evidence for it, but it was slightly more than just a running joke.

  I very much like the fact that I can fix grammar/punctuation errors that I spot in Wikipedia. Most other websites all I can do is shake my fist and yell at the screen.

I really want to visit Guilin, China.

  I like mirrors. I like that they cause people to be confronted with themselves. I think there should be a mirror hung on any door through which there is any possibility of someone one day storming out in anger, so they have to look at themselves before the do it. And on the office door of every congressman, senator, governor, lawyer, councilman, etc,

I want to have a mirror inscribed with the words:

Reflection, n. - A calm, lengthy, intent consideration.

Because you're looking at your reflection, and, AND, to reflect is to think. See what I did there?

Omg this hits a sore spot, my parents actually have a video of me mid-tantrum. I'm also dressed as a TV.

OMG! LOL! That's THE best ending. I'm going to start using that instead of the lame "...and then I found five dollars" ending to stories.
