This is all you need for your to-do list today. The cat can be fed tomorrow. Work? Hey, it's Friday.
Comedian Brian Regan has appeared on the David Letterman Show 25 times, which tells you something about his gourd, along with 207,000 likes on his Facebook page. He talked to our editor about his performance at the BJCC this Friday, September 21 (that's today, as of this posting, if you lost track) but things got really interesting when Scarlet interrupted.
They agreed on the most important philosophical question of the day: WTF? The results of that conversation, however, have been classified by the NSA.
They also seemed to agree about no-nonsense judges. Like what's the nonsense judge? Well, Scarlet can tell you. Maybe more than Brian, who is happily married.
Regan has a way of turning everyday mundane incidents into comedy. Take the UPS man, for example. Honestly, they want to know the weight and girth of your boxes! Who knows the weight? And what is girth! And how am I going to put the box on the bathroom scale to find the weight when the box covers up the number. Can you pull away the box real fast and read the number? Zero! It's like that Higgs-Boson particle Anonymous was talking about!
Can't they just send the truck to pick up the box? What if I make up some numbers. The guy is funny, at least by our standards at the Birmingham Weekly, if that tells you anything else.
He has a birthday coming up, by the way, and probably has some funny observations about that, so come out and see him tonight at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Center Concert Hall, 8 p.m. Just don't get him started on love handles. Tickets $49.85 including fees.
It's what we think you ought to be doing today. So skip work and get busy. And why does that guy keep waving at me? Is it a computer glitch on the website. The photo is by Brian Friedman. Maybe it's his fault.
