Well, shoot. That would have been funny

OK, so I just logged in to check my email real quick. I have Google, which I love for many reasons, but especially because it often feature funny quotes from various sources across the top. The one I just saw was from Mitch Hedberg. Do you know him? Oh my gosh, he cracks me up! I clicked the link and just laughed my way all down the page. *

I don't think Mitch Hedberg is all that well-known, or at least as well-known as he should be, and since I know at least four of you would just howl over these jokes, (or sit through 18 hours of a Standup Spotlight marathon hoping he'd be back on, cough,SIS,cough) I decided to post the link. I was already chastising myself for the pseudo-post, so I decided to go the extra, um, half-inch and post a picture of him too. When I Googled him, I found out he died two years ago. Bet you're wishing you had clicked the link and laughed your way all down the page before you found that out, aren't you?

If you happen to attend First Baptist O'Fallon, no, I swear that is not Janeen's husband.

Look at that sly grin. Doesn't he just look like he's having fun?

*Think of the first four or five jokes as warm-up. The funnier and funniest jokes are after that. Like these:
  • "I like to play blackjack. I'm not addicted to gambling. I'm addicted to sitting in a semi-circle."
  • "I don't have a girlfriend. I just know a girl who would be really mad if she heard me say that."
I'm going to check YouTube for clips of him, because his delivery is what slays me. Here! Remember Dr. Katz? Funny stuff.

You've got me hooked. How did he die? He looks so young.

Did you listen to him? His cadence is just hysterical. Apparently he overdosed. I think he was 37.
