Another week of jokes written by me.

Alright, another week of Tweets down the drain.  This week was a rough one for me as I changed my avi to an actual picture of myself instead of a cartoon.  That way, if I'm ever internet famous, people will know I'm real.  As a result of the change, people did not recognize me and did not star and RT as prevalently.

Also, that old avi is just one I found online and I was scared of getting sued.

Well, here they are. The jokes I wrote this week and their stats.


Me? Oh I'm just standing with 87 other men, staring at various women's body lotions in this Target cosmetic aisle. (36 RTs, 170 stars)

I put a giant marble in the hippo cage and just as I thought, it went straight out its butt. (6 RTs, 83 stars)

What the bible doesn't say is that the stable had a Fitness Center On-Site & Same Day Dry Cleaning. Really, more of Holiday Inn Express. (8 RTs, 86 stars)

7-11 has a beautiful assortment of gift cards. (11 RTs, 93 stars)

Giving a kid a Lego set is like saying, "Here, I hope your parents aren't busy for the next couple days." (21 RTs, 116 stars)

A fanny pack would be the perfect place to keep orphaned baby kangaroos. (10 RTs, 77 stars)

Discreetly got the wedged underwear out of my butt without using my hands. Also, you probably don't want to buy a broom from this Target. (29 RTs, 83 stars)

Some things are easily forgotten, but an unfriending on Facebook? That lasts forever. (9 RTs, 58 stars)

Cheeseboy's Top 10 (plus 1) Movies That Made Me Laugh

As a self-appointed "funny guy",  I quite fond of funny movies.  As I ready myself to watch what I feel will become one of my favorite funny movies (Sleepwalk With Me), I started contemplating my favorite movies that made me laugh.  

Perhaps you have never heard of some of these movies?  Perhaps you have.  Perhaps you are wondering what the meaning of all of this is or the meaning of life.  Perhaps you are wondering where the best place for wafles is at 3:00 in the morning.  I'll get to all these questions, but first you may want to read this list.  You may also want to write some of these titles down so you may Netflix them or whatever the kids are doing nowadays.

11. Just Friends (2005) - Staring Ryan Reynolds and Amy Smart.

Reynolds singing "I Swear" at the beginning in a fat suit is one of my all time favorite movie moments. So very many other funny moments though.

BEST LINE - Chris: [writing in her yearbook] Dear Jamie, When we're together, I feel like we're not in high school, but in our own little Chris and Jamie world. Whether we're watching 'Party of Five' or practicing our cheers, I feel like I can just be myself. Jamie, we've been friends for a really long time, but I want to be more than that. Hoping to be your boyfriend... Sincerely, Chris Brander. BFF! 

10. The Jerk (1979) - Staring Steve Martin and Burnadette Peters

Steve Martin is my comic hero.  This is the first of two of his movies on my list, I watched this movie for the first time when I was 12 and I will never forget that day. (My cat also died that day.)  This was the original "Dumb and Dumber" and was better than that movie in every way. Perhaps it should have just been called "Dumb".

BEST LINE - Navin R. Johnson: I know we've only known each other four weeks and three days, but to me it seems like nine weeks and five days. The first day seemed like a week and the second day seemed like five days. And the third day seemed like a week again and the fourth day seemed like eight days. And the fifth day you went to see your mother and that seemed just like a day, and then you came back and later on the sixth day, in the evening, when we saw each other, that started seeming like two days, so in the evening it seemed like two days spilling over into the next day and that started seeming like four days, so at the end of the sixth day on into the seventh day, it seemed like a total of five days. And the sixth day seemed like a week and a half. I have it written down, but I can show it to you tomorrow if you want to see it. 

9. American Movie (1999) - Directed by Chris Smith

This was the perfect documentary in every way.  It follows the life of a couple Wisconsin losers without jobs, trying to make a horror movie on a budget of zero.  The dorks prove to be very endearing and by the end you are cheering for them to succeed.  In the middle there are so many laughs to be had.

BEST LINE - Do you think this is a little cathartic for you? - - Uh, very cathartic, Mark! - - Do you know what cathartic means? - - No.

8. Bridesmaids (2011) - Staring Kristin Wiig and Melissa McCarthy

A chick flick, I know.  Crude, I know.  I had to put a Judd Apatow movie on here though because he followed me on Twitter for about 6 months and I feel I owe it to him.  Honestly though, by the time I finished the movie I feel as though I had been hit in the gut with two giant fists of comedy furry.

BEST LINE - Annie: You read my diary? 
Brynn: At first I did not know it was your diary, I thought it was a very sad handwritten book. 

7. Office Space (1999) - Staring Ron Livingston and Jennifer Anniston 

Too bad Anniston's career was all downhill after this one.  This is one of those movies I just have to stop and watch when it comes on cable.  It has such great deadpan, but what makes it truly appealing is that just about everyone can relate to it.  A little crude but if you are worried about that, watch the TV version.  It's probably on right now.

BEST LINE - Samir: No one in this country can ever pronounce my name right. It's not that hard: Na-ghee-na-na-jar. Nagheenanajar. 
Michael Bolton: Yeah, well, at least your name isn't Michael Bolton. 
Samir: You know, there's nothing wrong with that name. 
Michael Bolton: There *was* nothing wrong with it... until I was about twelve years old and that no-talent clown became famous and started winning Grammys. 
Samir: Hmm... well, why don't you just go by Mike instead of Michael? 
Michael Bolton: No way! Why should I change? He's the one who sucks. 

6. Napolean Dynamite (2004) - Staring Jon Heder and Efren Ramirez 

I know, I know, you can't live in Utah or Idaho without either loving or hating this movie.  Put me in the love category, although I don't go around driving everyone crazy quoting it all the time.  Except for now.

BEST LINE - Napoleon Dynamite: Do the chickens have large talons?

5. Troll 2 (1990) - Staring Michael Stephenson and George Hardy

If you have seen this movie, you know exactly why it is in my top 10.  It has been dubbed "The Best Worst Movie of All Time" and it is truly horrific in every way.  It's not even about Trolls, nor does it reference Troll 1.  It was not meant to be a comedy, but it has amazing comedic value.

When I was a teenager, my friends and I must have watched this movie 45 times.  Each time, we laughed as though it was the first.  If you haven't seen this, you just have to.  There is no way to describe it.

BEST LINE: Joshua: A double-decker bologna sandwich! 
Creedence: Aaahhh! Think about the cholesterol! Think about... THE TOXINS...! 

4. The Man Who Knew Too Little (1997) - Staring Bill Murray and Peter Gallagher

I could have put just about any Bill Murray movie on this list but this is my absolute favorite.  No one plays the buffoon like Bill and he plays it to perfection.  The whole plot just makes me giggle.  The ending had me in laughter tears.  Yes, laughter tears, it's a thing.

BEST LINE: Wallace: She told me about the letters. 
Gilbert Embleton: Letters? What letters? 
Wallace: The letters. She told me about them. I know all about the letters. How do you think I know? She told me. That's how I found out. 

3. The Other Guys (2010) - Staring Will Farrell and Mark Wahlberg 

The newest movie on the list, I can not get enough of it.  Like Office Space, it seems to be on every day and I find myself watching it over and over again.  In fact, it's on right now.  I better hurry and finish this so I can watch it.

BEST LINE: Allen Gamble: At age 11, I audited my parents. Believe me, there were some discrepancies, and I was grounded. 

2. Bowfinger (1999) - Staring Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy

This movie is brilliantly funny and brilliantly written and brilliantly well lit as to highlight the actors faces.  My favorite Steve Martin movie, but the very best part is when they force Eddie Murphy cross the crowded highway.  I am laughing right now thinking about it.  I am laughing out loud.  I am LOLing, but OUT LOUD! 

BEST LINE: Robert K. Bowfinger: Would you be willing to cut your hair? 
Jiff Ramsey: Well, yeah, but it would probably be better if someone else did it. I've had a few... accidents.

1. Waiting For Guffman (1997) - Staring Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy

In my opinion, the very best Christopher Guest movie and the movie that made me laugh more than any other movie in existence.  Probably the best movie ever made by anyone.  

BEST LINE: Corky St. Clair: Here's the Remains of the Day lunchbox. Kids don't like eating at school, but if they have a Remains of the Day lunchbox they're a lot happier.

This Week's Tweets!

I know, I've kinda given up on the blog.  I feel guilty about it.  But I'm going to start posting my week's worth of tweets on this blog every Friday for you to enjoy and for me to keep track of.

So, I'm sorta, kinda back to blogging.  Really, I am just copying and pasting.  However, it is very complicated copying and pasting, so that counts for something, right?  Anyway, here are this week's tweets. Feel free to read them or don't. It's entirely up to you.

Remember me? 


There was an old lady who swallowed a cat. (It's fine though. She has like 11 more.)

I wish there was a Christmas movie in which some sort of chaos happens to an unsuspecting family.

"Pum Pa Rum Pum Rum Pa Pa Rum" ~ Drunk Little Drummer Boy

When people ask, "Don't I know you from somewhere?", I reply "Yes, we were best friends as children until you murdered my puppy."

My steps to wrapping gifts: 1.Wrap 2.Tape 3.Looks like crap. 4.Unwrap it and just shove it in one of those decorative gift bag things.

Went and saw a play of "The Christmas Carol" tonight. It was total crap. Scrooge didn't even have a duckbill!

My 6yo son:What are those top things you spin for chocolate coins called? Me: Dreidel? Son: Yeah dad! I want one of those for Christmas.

I think this owl and this raven are in caw hoots.

When one door closes, another one opens. Maybe the same door, especially if there are no other doors in the room. You have to leave sometime.

I once I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus. Which is weird because we were Jewish.

Hey people posting the picture of Santa kneeling by the manger on Facebook: I don't think that is historically accurate.

I've never once in my life heard a bus driver say, "Move on back."

FYI guys: Aquafresh means "Water fresh" in Spanish.

"Grandma Got Ran Over By A Reindeer" is my favorite Christmas song about the death of a grandmother.

'Tis the season to abbreviate "it is".

Just finished putting up a single strand of Christmas lights on my house that says "Jewish".

I told the worker at Target that the shepherds and wise men would have loved the way he straightened up the fake Christmas tree display.

Son: Dad, was the manger filled with peas? Me: No, why? Son: The song, 'sleep in heavenly peas'. Me: Oh, yes! Yeah, it WAS filled with peas!

I'm so hairy, I go shirtless to ugly sweater parties.

Ate lunch at Sizzler today and now I am 84 years old.

What I've learned from Glee is a bunch of people of different races, sexual orientations & disabilities can unite to make a pile of crap.

My lucky Secret Santa recipient is going to be ecstatic when she sees that her desk has been coated in a layer of Axe Body Spray tomorrow!

A cute thing I tell my kids is that if you feed the Elf-On-The-Shelf after midnight or get it wet, it will turn evil & attack you.

Don't let folks tell you that you'll never amount to anything. I mean look at me, I was a goof-off in school & now I write jokes on Twitter!

"HOLY COW!" ~ Hindu farmers

The Whopper is 55 years old! Well, not *this* Whopper. Well, maybe this Whopper. I'll let you know, just a second.

A cute thing I tell my kids is that if you fart while sitting on Mall Santa's lap, Real Santa will bring you extra presents.

My kids once asked how I met their mother. Ten years later I'm still telling the story and they have totally lost interest.

Sure glad I paid the extra two bucks to see the live nativity instead of the dead one.

Thank goodness that singing farmer named his dog "Bingo" and not his first choice, "Buttsniffs".

I'm amazed at how young and vivacious Cindy Crawford's mole has stayed.

The handsoap in this Bed Bath and Beyond bathroom tastes so much more tart than at Target.

The world's greatest idiot test is to see who clicks "reply all" to a mass company email.

FYI: No matter how much you offer to pay, they will not allow you to replace the stuffing in your taxidermied pets at the Build-A-Bear.
