You may know Dawn French from The Vicar of Dibley, and you may recognize Jennifer Saunders from Absolutely Fabulous. Did you know, however, that YouTube has dozens of skits from this comediennes team? As with any sketch comedy show, French & Saunders hits and misses, but you might wish to watch some of their skits online for grins and an occasional laugh. The production quality is remarkable for a sketch comedy show.
Here, you can watch French & Saunders’ parody of The Lord of the Rings movies, The French and The Saunders:
Some blushes for Peter Jackson, with sincere apologies to J.R.R. Tolkien . . .
We are living in a time where waste and irresponsibility are celebrated and encouraged in public rhetoric and policy. In the spirit of the times, I offer an old Friday time waster—Heartgard’s I Do Dog Tricks. Simply follow the link and type whatever commands you wish for the little chap. It is cute and pointless . . . just what one needs in a time waster.
I received the following funny story in an e-mail.
When asked to draw a picture of what they wanted to be when they grew up, second-grader “Sarah” turned in the lovely drawing shown below. Needless to say, the teacher was a bit surprised—Mrs. Smith had always seemed like such a conservative woman. So she sent a note home to the girl’s mother asking for clarification as to the picture’s meaning.
The mother’s response:
Dear Mrs. Jones,
I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer. I work at Home Depot and I told Sarah how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had. Then I found one more in the back room, and several people were fighting over who would get it. Sarah’s picture does NOT show me dancing around a pole. It’s supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot. From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.
Well, what if your mom is a pole dancer? Strippers have kids, too . . .
