Agreed Stu, both can bring out a belly laugh in me, especially Billy Connolly, darn near makes me double over. lol

And Brack, totally agree with you there. I look for something to laugh about everyday. There are so many funny things that happen around us that you just have to stop and take notice to see them. Like last night at the Rhythm Devils show watching some of the people dance. Gosh, I thought I was back in the Woodstock days, minus the mud of course. wink

Re: What makes you laugh/smile ?

Being awake at 2:30am, going on Facebook, and seeing Photogal  (Rhonda) is awake, too.   Silly chatter on the chat line in the wee hours of the morning, I think I laughed outloud the entire conversation  lol  and the real bonus was seeing Joe's "Famous Farmer Tan" at that hour ........the picture of Joe is priceless   wink

Hey Brack,
I'm at work now...no Facebook access allowed. Imagine that? Will check on when I get home or maybe someone else can figure out how to do before I do.
                               Have a FUN day!

Re: What makes you laugh/smile ?

I do like Doug, thanks Brack and thanks for the lists. This guy makes me laugh just looking at him, just so over the top and mostly inappropriate with everything he says and does. Eastbound And Down will be back with a new season here pretty soon. You may also remember Tropic Thunder, Pineapple Express, and The Foot Fist Way. Foot Fist Way was a bomb I believe, but so outrageous that it was worth a watch anyway, I enjoyed it.
