"Say ... do you fellas notice anything different?"
“Saaay … do you fellas notice anything different?”
"You got a new ring?"
“You got a new ring?”
"What? No."
“What? No.”
"Why were you holding your hand like that then?"
“Why were you holding your hand like that then?”
"It was just a gesture. I don't know."
“It was just a gesture. I don’t know.”
"OK, well, why are you holding your hand like that now?"
“OK, well, why are you holding your hand like that now?”
"Jesus crop-dusting a cotton patch, guys!"
“Jesus crop-dusting a cotton patch, guys!”
"I got glasses! Dang!"
“I got glasses! Dang!”
"Did you not have those before?"
“Did you not have those before?”
"UGH. Y'all take the monkey-huggin' fun out of everything I swear."
“UGH. Y’all take the monkey-huggin’ fun out of everything, I swear.”
"Come on, Governor Perry. Don't be like that."
“Come on, Governor Perry. Don’t be like that.”
"Oh, OK, fine. Hey, check out what I can do now ..."
“Oh, OK, fine. Hey, check out what I can do now …”
"Huh?"
“Huh?”

    Doesn’t get old. Just doesn’t.

  • Tony Burkhart

    Solid effort. Perhaps the best of the series to date.

  • Chris Chris

    All right. It was the Italian comment at the end that got me. Nice.

  • Pete Wagner

    Was that supposed to be an attempt at humor? But granted humor has gotten more difficult in light of the reality of Obama, Yellen, Kerry, Biden… Hard to top.

  • Brett Moore

    Based on your comment, I’m not sure you’re a qualified assessor of humor.

  • Keith

    It really should, but you’re right, it never does.

  • Happily

    Oh, yes, Brett Moore, that makes perfect sense! Since P. Wagner had the nerve to make a joke about our federal representatives, he must therefore be unqualified to assess humour regarding our governor. Makes a lot of sense! How does one get “qualified” to assess humour rightly according to you? My guess is I won’t pass the test.

  • Brett Moore

    No, Happily (IF THAT’S YOUR REAL NAME!). It’s not about his joke about federal officials. It’s about relying on the tired canard of “was that supposed to be an attempt at humor?”. He may as well have typed “Can I have my 5 minutes back?”
