Well, yeah, you got me there, Mike. I am not cool at all - I know, because my daughters tell me so all the time , but luckily they still love me nevertheless.<br><br>Yeah, I suppose Sandler's not cool, but he makes me laugh (but of course I laugh easily - well, Seinfeld often doesn't make me laugh, though, although that bit with his date's pizza shop owner dad not washing his hands after taking a crap was one of the funniest gags I've ever beheld).<br><br>I tend to base, sophomoric humor - I like to plant numerous remote-controlled fart sound dealies at meetings, often orchestrally. Not the collegiate-like conceit, but childish, immature, etc.<br><br>Ed<br><br>[color:purple]Information isn't a connection - It doesn't stir people</font color=purple><br>
Ed<br><br>Don't worry my grand daughter is the same way with me trying to be funny - she now only laughs when she thinks she has the one up man ship sorta thing . The grandpa your so out of date kinda thingy<br><br>This also includes them Genius parents as well. The next generation so to speak<br><br>
I read three other reviews last night that said the same thing, but not nearly as well. And get this ~ I hit on them curising through GoogleNews. That I go for my late night news fix with Google says more about the way we seek out information than MS will, apparently, ever really understand.<br><br><br>[color:blue]Yet, here comes Microsoft, in spandex, leg warmers, and headband, spending $300 million on a big honking brand campaign at the very time that no longer works.</font color=blue><br><br><br>Cruel, true and funny. <br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:white]xx</font color=white>[color:blue]I always deserve it.

Interesting about Seinfeld and his control tendencies. It reminded me of an interview he gave some time ago. Here is a snippet:<br><br>"The audience is a child, and you're responsible for the child," said Seinfeld. "Sometimes that means not giving the child what the child wants. The child isn't happy at the time, but perhaps later the child will understand."<br><br>That almost sounds funny, if not somewhat arrogant. I kinda understand what he means, it's just the way it sounds. Maybe he's better off doing stand up rather than explaining his methods.<br><br>Don't get me wrong, I really like the comedy of Jerry Seinfeld and his tv show. I'm glad he has his success and appreciate all the laughs I've had because of him over the years. <br><br>But, this current venture is just lame so far. He's a victim of his own success.<br><br>Chris <br><br><a href="http://www.light-imagery.com/index.html"target="_blank"></a><br><br><br>

Well, his show never struck me as a show 'about nothing' but rather about anal retentiveness, which can be quite funny at times, so that perhaps explains its spottiness with me. Most of the time it wasn't funny, as anal retentive humor can often be, but sometimes it was brilliantly funny.<br><br>So, perhaps he is anal retentive and just got overly anal-retentive, analytical, which is a great recipe for failure, especially concerning so basic as humor. Jack Nicklaus identified 140 parts to a golf swing, but he couldn't golf like that. Though he knew all that stuff, he just 'gripped it and ripped it'. That's likely how all successful people do stuff.<br><br>Ed<br><br>[color:purple]Information isn't a connection - It doesn't stir people</font color=purple><br>
