Answer to the greatest mystery in comedy now definitively solved.
As anyone who has been around the comedy world for anytime at all knows, there is one question that keeps getting raised repeatedly. In fact, it has become something of a Philosophers Stone of comedy material the world over. well I am delighted to say that I can now definitively give the answer.
What is more unlike similar enigmas ie The Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot, Flying Saucers etc. I can also provide photographic evidence on the matter. I suspect the answer will rock the comedy world to it’s core with it’s bold simplicity.
The heart and soul of routine in nearly every hack comedian (and one or two, not quite so hack, comedians) act, is about that missing sock that always seems to appear (disappear?) when one does the laundry. 4 go in and 3 come out, or 2 go in and 1 comes out. Provocative observational humor from the cutting edge of daily experience. Well, I have solved the problem, and the came about quickly and unexpectedly—fortunately my iPhone 4s was at hand.
While packing up our house in Las Vegas ready for our move to Los Angeles, we donated our washing machine to a charity and then moved our dryer into the moving van AND there it was, under the dryer—–the sock! I suggest other comic entertainers check in the same location to confirm the universal truth of my discovery. I was truly shocked by the solution to this seemingly insolvable quandry that has purplexed some of comedy’s greatest (and not so greatest) minds.
Emboldened by my discovery, I know plan to start work on tracking down the reasoning behind the 12 hot dogs in a package and 10 buns in a package conundrum that now remains as comedy’s second greatest equivelent to cold fusion. Rest assured that I will report my findings, when or if I get them, in these digital pages.
Let This blog entry also act as an advisory of our relocation from Las Vegas to our LA home, prior to our nextmove to Austin, Texas, ‘cos that’s where we wanna’ live—right under the X in Texas. My email adresses and cell phone number remain the same though.
