This guy amuses me . . .

And as such I thought I would share with you one of his many comics:



Don't ask me why this one gets to me so much. But I just could not stop laughing when I read this!

You guys (and especially the writers amongst you) should really check out his other stuff here: Keith Cronin

I know why it's funny! Because down in the States they have a commercial for a snack called "Emerald Nuts."

And who should play the main villain?

AWESOME!! Thanks Snarkfodder for the link, everyone you must check it out!

Still I must pose once again the eternal question as to why Robert Goulet himself makes for such fine comedy.

Sorry snarkfodder, I didn't understand your question about the villain thing though . . .

I meant in the commercial. Robert Goulet is the villain! And a dastardly one, at that.

Is this an American thing? I didn't get it at all. (crawls away with self-esteem at all time low)

Very funny. I have such WTF moments myself!

The Keith Cronin link isn't working. But neither is my email. Perhaps it's just a WTF kind of day.

dawn - it's a tricky one. Basically there are two parts to the joke. The first is the sheer fact that he thinks of Robert Goulet, who is a famous actor, but not in the same ilk as Brad Pitt or someone. It's one of those ... "Of all the people". The second half is the "WTF" the sort of trying to think of a character and again "of all people" Robert Goulet pops into his head.

Not so funny to explain really. But jokes rarely are. I had a clown class once where we had to tell the same joke over and over and over and then explain why it was funny and then tell the joke again etc. It was hilarious to watch, not because of the jokes, but the struggle that the people on stage went through trying to explain what made something humourous. Some people totally got it wrong.

Mary - actually it wasn't your fault at all! The link has been fixed, thanks for pointing it out!

What a laugh-out-loud link it is -- which is EXACTLY what I needed!

Thank you!
