ABSURDIST HUMOR

Avid readers of this blog (hi, mom!) will doubtless be aware that I'm a big fan of absurdist humor. It's the toughest type of humor to get right. It's a very fine line between comic brilliance and utter stupidity. Furthermore the type of creative mind that can do absurdism a rare, rare thing.

About five years ago, my friend Sam Tivo-ed and episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast called "Kentucky Nightmare." It features a dying shark, a jive talking worm, Willie Nelson, a poorly made documentary, and a large sandwich. It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. And it's one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

If you have 9 minutes to kill this weekend, I highly recommend you check it out...

I dunno, Workman. That fine line is getting finer by the minute.
