Oxymoron: New Tradition

My father used to say that LAUGHTER is the best medicine...

that's probably why a lot of us kids died of tuberculosis.

-- Jack Handy


The House of Warrick and the House of Greenbriar got together the other evening (see post 12/11008) to share a few beers, meal, dreams, a gift from Sir Dayvd, and... share a few LAUGHS (Yes Lady Allwinky, the teeth gag was priceless!).


Sir Hook's gifts to me included The Best of BrainDoppings by George Carlin, Ass Blaster Hot sauce which comes in its own wooden outhouse, and a book titled Jew-Jitsu The Hebrew Hands of Fury (putting fear into the hearts of those who mess with the kosher kids!).


All great gifts that, needless to say, are sure to offer many hours of amusement; however, the greatest gift they gave us was the GIFT OF LAUGHTER. I commented that at one point I laughed so unexpectedly hard that I nearly spewed beer out of my nose. Now that's a great gift!


Milton Berle once said that Laughter is an instant vacation.

Like A Christmas Vacation? One of the funniest Christmas movies of all time? Which, by the way, shows how Christmas can be both stressful and funny:


Clark Griswold: Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.


So this Christmas do some things that really make you, your family, your friends, and complete strangers LAUGH. Put on your Depends Diapers and laugh till you pee your pants. Strap yourself in so you don't laugh yourself off your chair. Bring some tissues so that you can wipe away the tears when you laugh till you cry. And remember to breathe so you don't choke on your own spit and laughter.


And finally, pick a drink that's non-carbonated (eggnog or milk are good choices -- unless you're lactose intolerant).

And NO Candy canes. They are big no-no to eat while laughing. Trust me.

I love that film too... is that the one that Randy Quaid his brother shows up in his winnebago ? I somehow remember hurting myself laughing at him saying about the Metal Plate in his head. :)(you had to be there)

If it comes on TV this year i must get a front seat. :)

To die laughing is at the top of my list :))

I'm laughing and snorting red wine through my nose with the Jesuit's at Whitehouse! Beware Sir D, cousin Eddie, his dicky, Bullwinkle cup and tooth challenged minions will be bringing their European Vacation to Kidlington soon! What's the matter Carr? Cat got your tongue?! Remember, Americans always get the last laugh, even at our own expense!

Now you are reminding me of that other great Griswold Film.. "European Vacation" ( the Griswolds go to Europe ) LOL...

What was the tagline again?...
..."For over two thousand years, Europe has survived many great disasters. Now for the real test. The Wells & Kuhns are coming from America!" :))

Thats some retreat there Hooky...sounding like that Holy Water's got a little summat in it!!! :))
