It’s “Flashback Friday.”
And, quite frankly, it’s difficult to beat a Larry David-themed flashback post. So, therefore, here is comedic genius Larry David (Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm) with his takes on social norms.
These are comedic bits about nothing that was actually about something pretty, pretty, pretty…funny!
The psychology of sleeping is funny.
As Daylight Savings approaches this Sunday, it’s essential that we are getting all the sleep we can these days. Some nights we fall right to sleep, while other nights can involve a lot of staring into the darkness for no particular reason or effectiveness. The latter is (hopefully) a very rare occurrence. But still, why does it happen? Was it something we ate? Something we drank? Are we cognitively consumed with something important, either consciously or unconsciously?
Might be time to consult a psychiatrist (or two).
Don’t forget to turn off the lights, set your alarm, and to kick-out your annoying TV brother who is spending the night.
Today is a perfect day to laugh.
Dana Carvey, an SNL and impressions icon, performs new comedy in an old way. What do I mean? Some of the best SNL sketches are when well-known figures are made fun of with great insight and precision. But there’s a catch:
The jokes are not activist-driven.
The video above showcases an increasingly rare comedic gift. We have to be able to joke around with and about each other without getting heated about every single little detail. Sometimes we just need to laugh. Mr. Carvey’s sense of humor is laser-focused on the punchline instead of the punch. Jerry Seinfeld is the same way. And Mr. Seinfeld has said that he will care about you if you’re funny. Otherwise, he’s not interested.
A sage perspective, actually.
So, this is Nicolas Cage trying to order a medium Tall at Starbucks…
It’s the weekend!
Now, it may be tempting to take this opportunity to act a little differently than we do throughout the workweek. That’s completely normal and a good thing. However, be careful not to completely change who we are…
yeah–scratch that if it’s as hilarious as one of Jim’s pranks. It is quite difficult to beat a flashback from The Office (U.S.) on a Friday.
For all the reasons of why I don’t want to work with a person like Dwight K. Schrute, there just seems to be more reasons for why I really want to work with a person like Dwight K. Schrute. Why? Because concentrating some of my creative energy and resources on epic pranks would be crazy awesome.
