Whine And Cheese

Why do they call it rush hour when nothing moves, wondered Robin Williams.

If I’m the best man at a wedding, why is she marrying him? asked Jerry Seinfeld.

I realize these were two jokes, but were they really? Aren’t they damned good questions?

I think so.

One learns, you don’t necessarily need to read Plato to get the best advice.

Steven Wright said, you can’t have everything, because where would you put it? I try to remember that while shopping with coupons.

Never underestimate stupid people in large groups, cautioned George Carlin, and after watching that new…storming the Capitol footage, get his point. He also said, in America, anyone can become president…that’s the problem.

Relax, I’m not running.

The other pearl of wisdom from Mr. Carlin about getting sober… just because the monkey’s off your back, doesn’t mean the circus left town.

Ah yes, just because you’ve hung up your wineglass doesn’t mean you’re off the hook.

It’s the reason I can’t walk pass the Carlyle, still having to cross the street. I’m just too damned close to the bar, and swear I can hear that ice tinkling in those beveled glasses.

Henny Youngman, another sage said, If you’re going to do something tonight you’ll be sorry for tomorrow morning..sleep late.

Wish I knew that in those drinking days when I’d wake up and ask the fella next to me…and you are?

Mustn’t forget Winston Churchill who if wasn’t dead, I’d invite for a sleepover. He advised, If you’re going through hell, keep going. This has become my mantra, even in the supermarket trying to reach the butter while still obeying the 6 foot rule.

When they, whoever they are said, when the the student’s ready, the teacher will appear, should have mentioned he or she wouldn’t necessarily be wearing a suit and pearls. Well, he could have a double-strand, but she might be one of the village people…

or be wearing a derby smoking a cigar, looking oddly familiar. 

Don’t ever underestimate what a little silliness can do. 🙂

  1. Great post! Silliness can go hand in hand with truth. If it has a SILL in it, it could be a window.

    Pearls of wisdom disguised as humor. That bit about stupid people in large groups is too scary and true. There are so many examples that it makes me want to hide in a shell like a turtle if I think about it too much.
    The dress code (uncode) for students and teachers is crazy. Anything goes. We weren’t even allowed to wear dress pants when I went to school. Dresses and skirts only. The pendulum does seem to swing from one extreme to another for everything.

  3. I enjoyed your words of wisdom, Susannah. You had me laughing on several. (I know easy laugh) The morning after my decadent party days, my mantra was, “At least nobody died.” I would wish you could have a sleepover with Sir Winston. That sounds a little like heaven. A wish for a Valentine’s Day of peace to you. ❤️

    George Carlin would be having a field day in these crazy times.
    These little nuggets of wisdom, shared through jokes, are the best.
    Happy Valentine’s Day, Susannah!

    Those who see humor in life are wise. Those who share the humor make life a bit less hard and easier to live another dsy.

    OMG! Where would be be without humor?? I shutter to think! In these, in my opinion, overly sensitive times, humor still has managed to find it’s way to us. and thank goodness it has!

    Those ARE damn good questions!

    Your comic list is the best. I remember Steven Wright’s standup act, it was classic. And Carlin, he was the absolute master when it came to observations. Stupid people in large groups . . who are dispersing now and blaming their grand poobah . . funny how that works.

    Happy Valentine’s Day SB

    Most entertaining Susannah. Could I add “There’s nothing quite so rare as common sense”?

  9. Humor truly is the best medicine. I’m always floored at George Carlin’s ageless wisdom/humor.

  10. I feel like the pithy turn of phrase used to be more of a trend, like all the little witticisms that Oscar Wilde came up with. Maybe those are just the ones we remember now. I wonder if any of the little one-liner jokes from this era will be remembered into the future? One reason I’d love a time machine. 🙂
