Insert Something Clever Here

“Well, it seems that Vice-President Cheney has decided to give hunting lessons in his spare time, he wants his first clients to be, (insert something clever here)”

Sometimes when I’m writing a blog entry or writing jokes for my comedy act; I’ll have a pretty good premise, some vauge ideas, and not much else. So, I may write down what sounds good, and leave myself a note to come back to the idea and “insert something clever here”

You’ve probably seen comedians on stage tell the audience, “You can make up your own joke” after saying an obviously funny “set-up” line. “Insert Something Clever Here” is also my version of that.

So, when I was asked what kind of “tag line” or slogan, I wanted at the top of my blog, it was obvious to me that “insert something clever here” was going to my choice.

I hope that on most days, I fulfill the admonition to myself and provide you; my loyal, yet slightly warped readers; “something clever” to read.

You can also read my other “insertions” at Comedy This Exit and yet another new blog I am infrequently updating at Comedy Soapbox.

Comedy Soapbox is a site strictly for comedians, bookers, and fans and is proving to be a valuable resource in furthering my comedy career.

A link to the “Soapbox” and my blog at that site is at Comedy This Exit.

Now, for the above “make up your own joke”; tell me what your clever line would be.

Here’s the set-up once again…

“Well, it seems that Vice-President Cheney has decided to give hunting lessons in his spare time, he wants his first clients to be, (insert something clever here)”

  2. Way to go, good effort, Ty!

    Now let’s get specific…

    “Well, it seems that Vice-President Cheney has decided to give hunting lessons in his spare time, he wants his first client to be, George Bush. But even George isn’t that stupid.

    Or..

    “Well, it seems that Vice-President Cheney has decided to give hunting lessons in his spare time, he wants his first clients to be, Michael Moore. Cheney wants to pitch a new movie idea to him; Fahrenheit 30-06”

    C’mon, where’s my potential joke writers at?

    David,

    Okay you want joke writers..

    Here’s one I thought of yesterday.

    “okay so you have to give credit to Cheney for shooting him in the face. A liberal would have shot him in the back…” Har Har har.

    C’mon that was funny!

    Drawing a blank here, but, something like Al Gore, but Al was to busy giving away secrets to the Saudis.
