Too Easy, Not Funny

My Twitter feed lit up like a Christmas tree yesterday during Tom Brady's press conference. They were asking him about allegations the Patriots cheated by intentionally deflating the footballs used during their conference final win against Indianapolis.

Tom Brady had to answer questions about balls, and most couldn't resist cracking a joke about it. This reminded me of something Strombo said during episode 102.1 of my podcast. He was quoting former Our Lady Peace drummer Jeremy Taggart when he said "too easy, not funny".


This is a fantastic example of when something is just too easy, and therefore, not funny.

Happy Darwin Day!

Now here's a mind blowing fact for everyone...

Bonus mind-blowing fact: Albert Brooks was born Albert Einstein.

More Money Than Brains

moneyThis news report from Dallas amuses me.

A woman plans to buy $100,000 worth of the latest iPhone, the day they go on sale. Her plan is to sell them on eBay and make a tidy profit. She shows up to the store 15 minutes before it opens, ready to buy her place in line...

Some people have more money than brains.
