The Internet comes up with some brilliant stuff, no doubt. One of the latest batches of comedy gold has emerged on reddit, and it’s called Shower Thoughts; think Stephen Wright’s comedy, only crowdsourced. They’re both impressively clever and funny.
But how can they be even funnier? Watching Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) read them sitting on a porch. Hearing hilarious pearls of wisdom like “The person who would proofread Hitler’s speeches was a grammar Nazi,” just comes out funnier when it creeps out from under a massive brown mustache with a sitar soundtrack behind it. Two more for the road: “My right elbow has never been touched by my right hand,” and “Once you have a Ph.D., every meeting you go to becomes a doctor’s appointment.”
