I would aim for this tone and this approach, generally speaking

- Backpfeifengesicht (German) — “A face badly in need of a fist.“
- Hillary Clinton‘s disembodied head
- Impertinent image of the moment, via Michael Moynihan’s Twitter feed:
- Is suicide sometimes brought on by the “‘broken promise effect’ — the sometimes crushing disappointment that spring fails to bring the relief the sufferer has hoped for“?
- “NFL quarterbacks have continued to rewrite the record books in recent years, perhaps none as spectacularly as Green Bay’s [Aaron] Rodgers and New Orleans’ [Drew] Brees. Rodgers’ career passer rating (104.9) is nearly 10 points higher than No. 2 [Steve] Young (96.8), No. 3 [Tom] Brady (96.6) and No. 4 [Peyton] Manning (95.7). Rodgers also boasts the lowest INT rate (1.7%) and best TD-INT ratio (3.7 to 1) in history.”
- Richard Dawkins gets weird as motherfucking shit right here (wait for the payoff 5 minutes in, it’s worth it).
- “Sports is the epitome of old-world musical broadness — it touches on new wave, ’60s soul, beer-commercial blues, and classic honky-tonk. One of the album’s most recognizable tracks, ‘I Want a New Drug,’ topped the dance charts. That’s right — the clubs of ’84 banged to Huey Lewis and the News. It’s inconceivable that any album today could (or would even attempt to) cover so many bases in such a deliberate ‘one size fits all’ manner.”
- This is creepy and annoying, re: the Obamacare rollout: “‘If I’m uninsured and it’s October, I won’t be able to go anywhere without escaping a message,’ John Gilbert, who leads Enroll America’s field operations, told supporters in a Thursday night presentation. ‘I turn on my TV and there’s an ad. I go on the Internet and there’s another ad. Someone shows up at my door to talk about it. I go to church and my pastor is talking about it.'” —————- Hey! Go fuck yourself, Gilbert.
Sometimes it’s hard to say no
The greatest thing about this skit is that it’s a minute too long.
I like it when comedians keep the enthusiasm going even after the moment has come and gone.
