Listen To Jack Handey
“That’s why you like reading Benchley and Thurber and stuff like that. They didn’t really write about, you know, the election of 1920, which is gone. I’m sure there was some great satire about the election of 1920, if that was an election year, but I just prefer more of the introspective kind of stuff.
A lot of the stuff now is just topical, or political, and it just — I don’t know. Not many people can do … Jim Downey can do political stuff good, but a lot of it is just the first step you think of. That’s what they do. Rather than going to the second or third step.”
Everybody’s gotta listen to Jack Handey on Mike Sacks’ podcast. And then everybody’s gotta start making funny stuff and stop making shit that I hate. And then everybody’s gotta stop leaving negative reviews of The Stench of Honolulu on Amazon because if you make Jack Handey sad I swear to god I’m gonna murder you and that’ll be the end for both of us and I won’t regret it.
It’s a nice interview that will make you upset that Jack Handey doesn’t have a Nobel Prize or at least more money than he has currently. He and Mike Sacks remember this Fuzzy Memory together: “Of all my imaginary friends, I don’t think there was one that I didn’t end up having to kill.” Haha. Man. It just doesn’t get better than, “Of all my imaginary friends, I don’t think there was one that I didn’t end up having to kill.”
I hope you know I would never ask you to listen to a podcast unless it was important.
Here, you listen.
