          Hi, everybody. Today I’d like to talk about Slogans.

          It’s a marked trend nowadays – every Company has its own Slogan, every Brand has its own Motto, every Product has its own Catchword.
Slogans are usually very short. I explain this as follows: the fewer words are used to express an idea, the stronger each word is, the more dramatic effect it has on people.
         
However “shorter” doesn’t always mean “better”. Certainly, brevity is the soul of wit, but understatement may lead to misunderstanding. The line is very easy to go over.


          Actually the line has already been gone over. Just look around – Slogans are everywhere. We’ve got used to them so much that we can no longer see how stupid, strange, odd and sometimes terrifying they are.

          Burger King, for example, has the following Slogan: "It takes two hands to hold a Whooper!"

Upload it to the site, & get your friends to vote on it a ton of times. The big prize is a trip to New York including exclusive party invites, spending cash, & more! And there is more than 1 trip being awarded!

So pleeeease click on the banner to go check out the site (or go to http://comcast.indecision2008.com)! It's a fun little contest, & if nothing else check out the gallery of videos & vote on your favorite(s)!!

I just saw naked female breasts on Comedy Central.  Yes, I have been drinking, but I know what I saw.

I'm not sure with FCC regulations or whatever, but I thought that wasn't kosher, even on the secret stash.

...

Hooray, booze!

In 1983 Joel was on the Eighth Annual Young Comedians special on HBO.

Anyone ever see or hear from him again?

Naked Trucker & T-Bones [24 Apr 2007|11:38am]

What happened to the show? The IMDB reviews were terrible, but I absolutely loved it; and you can't dis the guest stars either. David Koechner was hysterical. So where did it go?

I'd rather watch old episodes of "Stella" than his new episodes (or any episodes, for that matter). Mmm, sweet Stella.  Please come back to Comedy Central.




On a seperate note, Stephen Lynch is brilliantly amazing. I highly recommend you catching his show if he comes near your area, you will not be disappointed. David Josefsberg played along side of him for a couple of songs and was hysterical.  He is a comedian to look out for if you enjoy Lynch's genre of humor.

Searching [02 Apr 2007|11:12pm]

Hey all. I'm trying to find the name of a comedy show/group that was shown on comedy central in the past 3-4 years. I believe they were all brits, but I can't find anything on them. Might've only shown one season? Its not the League of Gentleman or Monty Python or Ab Fab...it was skit comedy. Any help?

Lisa Lampanelli = the woman version of Carlos Mencia.


Someone should be tallying how many times she says "black."

Nothing better than Comedy Central on the weekends! Especially after dark!

I got to watch it all night, even Jay Mohr. I adore him. "$160 A NIGHT GOT INTO ME!"
