I Think Dane Cook Is Funny

The other day in the office, the very funny but slightly obsessive guy who always calls into radio stations and wins tickets every week and then sell them and uses the money to buy authentic Battlestar Galactica paraphernalia on eBay (you have a guy like this in your work place right?) said he had a pair of Dane Cook tickets to sell, and when I expressed interest because my wife and I both think he's funny, I took some flak for liking Dane Cook-- apparently people who think they are hip don't like Dane Cook, they think he is "obvious" and "just in it for the attention" and "not very clever" and since I wasn't all that familiar with him, I had just heard some of his famous bits (car alarm, Kool-Aid guy, public restrooms, etc.) I did some research and listened to his new album (Isolated Incident) and his takes on race, suicide, masturbation, porn, and Obama all made me laugh, so maybe I am obvious, not very clever, and just in it for the attention as well.

You're also fucking lazy. You posted this entire bit last week on Gheorghe. There have been fewer letdowns at the Sentence of Dave bigger than this for me. For the first time ever, I come to the blog before 7 am and I'm thinking, like a kid making the first footprints in a new snowfall, my eyes would be the first to peruse the new sentence. And then it's a tired old sentence, and not even a particularly good one, and now I feel like your fellow teachers who come here and read all about the same shit you talk about all day long between classes, driving them up a wall, and it's like that fresh snowfall wasn't snow at all, but bird crap, and my footprints are in it first but that just means I'm the first one to have to wash his shoes this morning. Thanks for nothing.
