Just today this was posted to a discussion thread I started a year or two ago on BlowUpTheMoon.com, a comedy discussion board, about Dave Foley's appearance on TSOYA.

Reminds me of the guy who used to send nonsense newsletters to the Mayor's office when I worked there, James Bond Zero of the Hardware Secret Service.

He had hisOwn PRIME TIME SHOW WHICH WAS FANTASTIC
It WAS CALLED "THANK GOD YOUR HERE" They swiped it tho';
Jhn Lithgow & Jeffrey Tambor had a new series & the swiped it off & canceled it as well.
Who are the appealing to as an audience.~?
"WE" A VERY LARGE NUMBER OF PROTESTORS AGAINST THIER CANCELATION; RIOTED BY GIVING UP WATCHIND THAT PARTICULAR STATION.

THEY CANCELED JOHN LITHGGOW'S SHOW;
DAVE FOLEY'S, *NEW INTERESTING, & CHALLENGING, TO ACTORS, & COMEDIANS,& AUDIENCES.

After KEEPING TRACK & WRITING IN MY SUBMISSIONS TO NEILSON;
IT COULD'NT BE MAILED BACK TO THEM; IT WOULD'NT BE RECEIVED.
*You Network heads, are'nt making UN-INFORMED choices;

WON'T SOMEONE PUT ON THE SHOWS THE NETWORK HEADS *REJECT~?

My Nature Documentary, by Jack Handey

| 0 comments

Show monkey in a tree. Narrator says, “The monkey, proud and smart, in his native habitat. But one thing he does not have . . .” Show a giraffe. “. . . is a long neck, like the giraffe. Which is why nature has allowed them to combine forces.” Show monkey on giraffe’s neck. (Note: Monkey may have to be tied on.)

Then the narrator says, “The monkey can now see very far, and has protection from predators. And the giraffe has a little friendly guy to ride around on him.”


May God bless you, New Yorker, for making Mr. Jack Handey a continuing part of our lives.

Podcast: Coyle & Sharpe, Ep. 12: Mailman, Give Us Your Mail

| 0 comments


In the early 1960s, James P. Coyle and Mal Sharpe roamed the streets of San Francisco, microphone in hand, roping strangers into bizarre schemes and surreal stunts. Today, their humor is a cultural touchstone for artists as varied as Henry Rollins and The Upright Citizens Brigade.

These recordings are from the Sharpe family archive, which is tended by Mal's daughter, Jennifer Sharpe. You can learn more about Coyle & Sharpe on their website or on MySpace. Their recent box set is These 2 Men Are Imposters.

This week, Coyle & Sharpe try to convince a mailman to let them deliver his mail. They promise not to do any "rifling".
