One commenter to yesterday’s thought for the day quoted Steven Wright. I suspect that you either love Wright or don’t care for him at all. I LOVE him. Here’s a link to a site that has a great collection of his one liners. To get the full Steven Wright effect, you have to read, or better yet hear, line after line. It’s a little like the old Laugh-In show — the lines come thick and fast, and each one can bring you up short, so that the effect builds until you are laughing out loud. Or at least wondering how he thinks of these things. Still, I can’t resist sharing a few lines from the site:
I wrote a song, but I can’t read music so I don’t know what it is. Every once in a while I’ll be listening to the radio and I say, “I think I might have written that.”
I had a dream that all the victims of The Pill came back… Boy, were they mad!
“What’s another word for Thesaurus?”
I went down the street to the 24-hour grocery. When I got there, the guy was locking the front door. I said, “Hey, the sign says you’re open 24 hours.” He said, “Yes, but not in a row.”
Not exactly Oscar Wilde, but wildly funny.Email This Post To A Friend
