The past week has been an unpleasant one around Rancho Pensier. I found myself needing cheer and laughter in large quantities. I had no choice but to turn to that cache of fail-safe funny things that never fail to improve the darkest turn of mind. See if one or more of these don’t fix your blue mood, at least temporarily. They worked for me.
Any part, or all, of “A Fish Called Wanda”.
Eddie Izzard’s “Heimlich Maneuver” routine.
This clip from “Wonder Man” with Danny Kaye, starting at 5:20, or the beginning if you’ve never seen it. About 90 seconds of pure distilled Kaye lunacy.
Pretty much any clip from “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”, like this one.
Reading “Balsamic Dreams” by Joe Queenan.
Hedgehog babies running around with cardboard tubes on their heads.
