Rodin's Thinker

“Is it getting solipsistic in here, or is it just me?”

(Kudos to whoever came up with this great one-liner. The bizarre thing about jokes is that if you ask a bunch of stand-up comics about the origin of any joke, almost invariably none of them will know where it came from.)

Joke of the Day 6-5-17

Posted: June 5, 2017 in Humor, Jokes

I was going to buy a copy of The Power of Positive Thinking, and then I thought, What the hell good would that do?

“I had a dream the other night. I was playing golf with Donald Trump. I was standing beside him with a club in my hand, and I was considering my options when I suddenly woke up. It was one of those dreams where you just want to get back to sleep so you can finish it, you know?”

–quoted by Jake Nevins in “Jim Carrey comes to Kathy Griffin’s Defense” in the June 1, 2017 edition of The Guardian

(If you’re wondering why we like this joke but have no use for Kathy Griffin’s photo of herself with the mock severed head of Trump, here you go: both the photo and the joke “cross the line,” but Carrey’s joke is both clever and funny; Griffin’s photo is neither — it’s just deliberately offensive.)

Calavera by Miguel Posada

“If we could play a tune on a skeleton as on a marimba, we would be tapping a spinal chord.”

–Stuart Faxon

(The above image is Miguel Posada’s most famous calavera.)


“Socrates said, ‘The unexamined life is not worth living.’ He was right. But the examined life is no bargain, either.”

–Woody Allen, Cafe Society
