Best of the web — and in the world
Best of the web. Yes, please. Look, the other day I watched our President-elect stand in front of American flags, at a podium, with Trump-branded products like wine and steak to either side of him on display, cruelly mock journalists and refer to the news as “crap.” So I needed to laugh and laugh good before I started to punch things.
Hence this week, you’ll find everything in my Pocket induces laughter. Much, much needed laughter.
- When I got home from work last night, I immediately turned on that day’s episode of “Ellen.” I record it every day and have for years. Sometimes she also makes me cry but at the top of the show, she had my hysterical:
- If I’ve really gotta force a laugh to get to a place of feeling better, I flip on a comedy special. My favorite these days is John Mulaney’s “The Comeback Kid” on Netflix. It doesn’t seem to matter how many times I watch it — I end up nearly wetting myself. I also watched Joe Rogan’s Netflix special this week and it was a lot funnier than I expected it to be! (See also: John Mulaney’s bit on Donald Trump.)
- I also find, especially because my drive to and from work is so long, that podcasts can really get me through. Here are a few of my faves:
- And speaking of, just plain, old fashioned reruns of the “Golden Girls” still make me laugh my ass off. Can’t see them on Logo, TV Land of Hallmark Channel? THEY ARE COMING TO HULU!
So what about you? What makes my smile and laugh? Share in the comments so I can join in, please. 😉
