mimes, fish, and self-driving cars
these are the topics of the three jokes in this offering
2) a new saying:
give a fish a worm and it'll eat for a day.
teach a fish the worm and it'll be a lot of fun at parties.4
3) a movie idea:
in a not-so-distant future, our main character grapples with the ramifications of self-driving automotive technology when getting into completely empty taxis or utilizing ride-sharing services entirely devoid of drivers.
i call it…
"car, where's my dude?"5
those are the sillies for today! thank you for receiving!
may 8 is the birthday of both my girlfriend rini (happy birthday rini!) AND my latest standup album that came out in 2020, “A.K.A.” (happy birthday album!)
so, if you haven’t listened to it yet, what a wonderful continuing opportunity! thanks to everyone who has listened already, thanks to everyone who has said such nice things about it, and thanks to anyone even just thinking about listening. you are all nice. thank you for reading this.
one final fun for today:
a fan/friend who goes by Tiny Elevator on instagram made this fun art of me, based on a photo rini took. you can see it here, and/or here in its natural environment on instagram! thank you all for being all the here-places you are! how are you doing this now, wherever you are?
are there any folks out there who don’t identify as “folks”? i never thought about this specifically, but has anyone ever heard or said “i am a folk”?
bonus question: why don’t we say “mime's the word”? (has everyone been pronouncing the word "mum" incorrectly?)
“teach people not to fish” — vegans, and fish
“dude” referring to folx of any gender that would like to be referred to as “dude.”
also maybe the main character is yoda, and he says “dude or dude not, there is no guy (driving the car)!”
