Infomercial

I went to Hilarities last night and laughed at some co­me­di­ans. The first guy looked like a punk/​hardass and his shtick sort of played off that by un­der­min­ing it. The sec­ond guy was lame [apart from some jokes about toi­let pa­per and his last name, Northern] and the third guy, Tom Ryan was ex­pect­ed­ly the most pro­fes­sion­al.

Part of his act men­tioned in­fomer­cials and how ap­par­ent­ly there have been some “break­throughs in hang­er tech­nol­o­gy.” Then he men­tioned how you al­ways see some­one us­ing a nor­mal hang­er and get­ting all frus­trat­ed with it, be­ing buried un­der a pile of hang­ers and so forth.

Now, this is a bla­tant ripoff from my friend Ward. Back when I was a fresh­man he said al­most the ex­act­ly same thing ex­cept in ref­er­ence to socks. Imgaine an in­fomer­cial for the new UltraSock. Of course there is go­ing to be a scene where you hear “Tired of not be­ing able to tell how to put a sock on? Well…” and a shot of some­one fail­ing to put on a nor­mal sock and get­ting ut­ter­ly frus­trat­ed at it. Ahh. I miss col­lege.

In oth­er news, I saw an old guy with a hair­lip the oth­er day. Not a hare­lip, but a hair­lip. That is, he had fa­cial hair on­ly around his lips. Not a soul’stache or a mous­tache but a thin enough line to leave the up­per lip bare and the chin ex­posed but hair cov­er­ing the lips. It was gross. He se­ri­ous­ly looked like he had lips made of hair. You couldn’t see re­al lip at all. The rest of his face was smooth-shaven. Look at some dude with­out fa­cial hair and then pic­ture that their lips are made from brown hair. Yick.

  1. As soon as I read the hang­er thing, I knew where his joke was going…this Tom Ryan guy is rip­ping off my ma­te­ri­al!

    Good mem­o­ry Harvey.

  2. Ward, how the hell have you been? I haven’t seen you around or on­line or any­thing in awhile.….
