I feel sorry for the homeless guy. I feel really sorry for his dog, though, ‘cause you know the dog’s thinking ‘This is the longest walk ever.’
‘Does this thing have a payoff, pal? ‘Cause I could do this on my own. Really. Thanks for the leash.’
— Norm MacDonald
“Perhaps the greatest joke ever written.” — Dennis Miller

Dennis Miller gives his NFL playoff picks, January 19, 2010.
Interview with comedian, actor, author, musician and true Renaissance Man Steve Martin on The Dennis Miller Show, October 19, 2010. Martin, who has returned to the stage with a new bluegrass music act, which is equal parts song and comedy, talked about how happy he is bringing the best of both worlds together in his live performances. In this hilarious clip, Dennis recalls one of his favorite moments from Martin’s recent performance in Santa Barbara where they “had to pull him out of the aisle, he was laughing so hard,” and Martin gives him the set-up from the bit.
Martin, on his relationship with his touring band and the funny dynamic they play off of regularly during the show:
As you can tell, we’ve developed this really good rapport. I think we have a good camaraderie offstage, and onstage, we have just kind of a funny relationship, ‘cause I’m like the Hollywood egotist and they’re the down home, sweet North Carolina guys…
This particular set-up, on how bluegrass music comes from the travails of the day:
I try to write songs that are based on personal experience…This next song is called “Uh Oh, I Think My Masseuse Is Too Chatty.”
Maybe the funniest line I’ve heard all year. I think I fell down in the street the first time I heard it back in October. People must have thought I was nuts. No one better.
Listen to the whole interview for a good laugh.

Reblogging in light of the circle-jerk going on this week and next.
Just substitute Copenhagen for Cancun.
Read the last bit.
RE: The 1,200 limos:Majken Friss Jorgensen, managing director of Copenhagen’s biggest limousine company, said her company hasn’t enough limos in the country to fulfill the demand of the conference attendees. “We’re having to drive them in hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden.”And the total number of electric cars or hybrids among that number? “Five,” says Ms Jorgensen.
Tick, tick, tock goes the carbon footprint clock…
RE: The 140 private planes:The airport says it is expecting up to 140 extra private jets during the peak period alone, so far over its capacity that the planes will have to fly off to regional airports – or to Sweden – to park, returning to Copenhagen to pick up their VIP passengers.
Tick, tock, tick, tock…“Isn’t Al Gore on the board of Apple? (Ed. - He also invented the internet). Why don’t they utilize a really good video conferencing facility for these conferences so that the people don’t have to travel?”
BRILLIANT, right? It could be state-of-the-art. The whole contingency hooked up to it. Stream the whole thing on YouTube. Gains major PR points. The message could be “Look, we’re so serious about this, we’re not even going to travel to it anymore” (nor generate carbon emissions equivalent to the annual output of over half a million Ethiopians).
Dennis: “We’ve got a problem on our hand when people are doing that and they’ll look you right in the eye and say ‘We have to do that because we have to confront the problem’ and then you say ‘That is the problem,’ and they don’t get that. They just go blank on you.
