In The Beginning...

Today some humourous looks at "beginnings" and a look at the beginning of humour...
The Creation Of Humour...The Condensed Version
In the beginning God created the blogger and mirth. The mirth was empty, a formless mass cloaked in silence. And the spirit of George Carlin was hovering over its surface. Then God said, "Let there be laughter," and there was laughter. And God saw that it was good. Then he separated the laughter from the chuckles. God called the laughter "side-splitting" and the chuckles "sputtering and snorting".

That was the first day of humour creation.

On the second day God created the joke.

On the third day God created the hairy dog story, the limmerick and all the one-liners

On the fourth day God created the blonde joke, the Polish joke and the Newfie joke

On the fifth day God created comics, humourists and other joke tellers

On the sixth day God created all the humour bloggers and their followers

On the seventh day God jested.
How This Argument Began

Why God Created The Stupid Wife

A man was wandering around in a field, thinking about how good his wife had been to him and how fortunate he was to have her. He asked God, "Why did you make her so kind-hearted?" The Lord responded, "So you could love her, my son." "Why did you make her so good-looking?" "So you could love her, my son." "Why did you make her such a good cook?" "So you could love her, my son."

The man thought about this. Then he said, "I don't mean to seem ungrateful or anything, but ... why did you make her so stupid?" "So she could love you, my son."

Drop by Theme Thursday today for more "beginnings".


This re-write sounds much better to me!

Far more plausible than the original but you haven't answered the question. Which did come first?

I'm definitely going to tell this to my Sunday school class. So they can love me.

I enjoyed this post immensley.. especially the checkien and egg ones..

The last joke.. isn't really a joke; this issomething women are BORN knowing!
Alan Burnett said…
Its good to have a bit of humour in place of all that searching for the beginning of the meaning of life stuff.
Don said…
Nicely done! Although I'm not so sure that the joke is actually a joke. That seems to be the case with a lot of great looking, intelligent women. Go figure...!
Brian Miller said…

Carlin is superb, and I reckon you've got the rest pretty close ...
Yodz said…
this one brighten up my boring morning,
I love that chicken married to an egg...
In my version of the humor creation story, God specifically created the chicken joke on the second day. Probably due a problem with the translation or something. I'm a strict adherent of the Kentucky Chicken Version (KCV). (In case you're curious, here's my take on the chicken joke:

Great post, noname!
Dreamhaven said…
Too funny for words. Great medicine
Coffee Messiah said…
Nicely done and creative 2 ; )

Wings: *snort* *snort*

Chris Wood: Long time no comment! Carlin's a master.

Yodz: My work here is done.

MikeWJ: Glad you liked it. I'll have to check yours out.

Dreamhaven: Glad I made you laugh. Mission accomplished.

Coffee Messiah: Thank you, thank you.

MikeWJ: (UPDATE) I read your post and it cracked me up. However the "Which came first" question remains unanswered. Unless of course the chicken crossed the road to get to the egg, who crossed first!

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
