British people aren't very funny.
Hallooooo! (That's how British guys say "hello" when they dress up as girls. For some reason it always gets a laugh.) How are you? I don't have much to say today, but I will comment on two things: 1) Trudy (the bank teller who I have a crush on and is currently dating my mortal enemy) called today to say she was sorry for bringing Damien (that's my mortal enemy) to lunch yesterday, and that he was such a jerk. I said it was "okay."
And 2) Why aren't British people funnier? Karen (that's my lamb) and I was watching Benny Hill on TV last night, and neither of us laughed ONCE. I kind of don't get why everyone was laughing a lot when Benny was dressed up as an old guy in a wheel chair and he was being chased around by a bunch of semi-clad nurses. (The saxophone song in the background was kind of funny though. Why can't they just play that, and not show anything else?)
I don't think Monty Python is funny, either. EXCEPT for their movie, The Life of Brian which is apparently based on my life, and is SUPER-DUPER FUNNY! I love it!! You should watch that one, because it's great. Don't watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail, because it is boring and DUMB. And especially don't watch it with a bunch of Monty Python nerds—because all they do is scream "NEE! NEE! NEE!" during the entire flick. Annoying!!
And here's another weird thing about British people: sometimes even the funny ones are NOT funny. Like Rowan Atkinson? If you ever see his Black Adder series on TV—WATCH IT! It's even funnier than The Life of Brian! Meanwhile, if you see his other series, Mr. Bean, on TV—DON'T WATCH IT! You'll want to dig out your eyeballs with a rusty spoon.
But I'm open to suggestions about British people you think are funny. (Yes, I've seen Absolutely Fabulous—don't think it's funny. But I have seen the British version of The Office, and think Ricky Gervais is hilarious, except when he's on that HBO show Extras, when he's not funny and BOOOOOORING.)
Today Karen ate a foot-long hot dog! SO CUTE. I took a picture of her so I could post it on this blog, but it looked dirty, so I didn't.
