Funny. Not Funny

I don't care what anyone says, I find Seinfeld funny, I love "didja ever notice" stuff. Upon watching his interview with Denton on enough rope, I found out that both Seinfeld and myself share something in common.

We search for something funny in the everyday, the mediocrity, the mundane, the landscape. However - most things aren't funny, and it is a testament to a person when they sift through the motions of life to find something humorous to share with someone else.

What is not funny? I learnt a lot about myself. Whilst sitting on a looooong busride back from Bondi I took in the world, I wanted to find at least something funny to make the trip not a complete waste of time.

Bins - not funny
Traffic lights - not funny
Exxy Retailers selling overpriced clothes - hilarious.
Idiot who get on bus then realise its the wrong bus - slightly funny
Obsessive lady who went through her mail on the bus - funny
Homeless guy stumbling around drunk and doing what looked like he was trying to put out a non-existant fire with his shoe - i think i actually made a laughing out loud noise at this spectacle

So what does that say about me? I find people with mental problems funny. I'm burning in hell for sure. Seinfeld and I would never do a show together. For one he is all about a clean act, and mine would be 80% swearing and 20% mocking people who need help.

At least I would get to wear sneakers and jeans.
