    I'm pissed at myself

    I got 7, and I find neither of them funny.

    I got 11 out of 12. Missed the one about the emergency brake and I've never heard of Steven Wright so that just tells you how awesome I think Mitch Hedberg was.

    Saw him live about a year before he died. Dude looked stoned but he was hilarious. His two CDs still give me fits even though I pretty much know every word by heart now.

    You've never heard of Steven Wright yet love Mitch Hedberg? I feel so sorry for you. I find Hedberg funnier but only slightly.

    I got 11 out of 12. I missed the subliminal advertising executive one. Must have missed that line.

    I don't listen to a lot of stand-up comedy and gave it up right around the time I got sick of Dane Cook. The quotes make it seem like he's similar to Hedberg. I'm guessing from your tone that's he's at least up there.


    Perhaps I'll give him a listen.

    He's basically Mitch Hedberg but less druggy (though still druggy) and more psychotic. Here's a video:

    Got 7 of 12. Kinda bummed with myself. I have all (I think) three of Hedberg's albums.

    As you can see from my sig, I'm kind of a Hedberg fan, and Steven Wright was the first comic I saw live (in Columbia, Mo., in 1986.) So I'm disappointed to report I only got 8 out of 12.

    Hedberg basically perfected the Steven Wright style, although with a great deal of chemical help. RIP.

    I think Pringles original intention was to make tennis balls... but on the day the rubber was supposed to show up a truckload of potatoes came. Pringles is a laid-back company, so they just said, "Fuck it, cut em up!"

    Got 10 of 12.

    Hedberg is an all-time favorite, and during college I got to write a story about Wright, who performed at our school. Dude is a strange, funny man. His scenes in So, I Married an Axe Murderer are fantastic.
