I hate Not being funny

Seriously what is up with that?  Most of the time I think I am pretty funny.  I spend a whole week writing jokes and rehearsing them in front of the mirror and then on my weekly sales call watch as my delivery tanks.  Perhaps it has something to do with practicing my delivery in front of a mirror but actually delivering the jokes (soon to be pizza) over a conference line.  My partner in crime Zack usually saves the day with actually quite funny jokes made up on the spot.  Don't you hate talent?  I know I do.  The ladies in Emmaus don't say anything which I take as "my God did he really say that" or is it "Mein Got wienershcnitzel, wienerschintzel". I've got a guy in Chicago whom I mail $20 bucks per week to laugh at the jokes and then a guy in NY who just shakes his head right in front of me.  I'm sure that the wootmeister in LA is paying the NY guy just to destabilize me.  Then there's Jack.  Jack is a famous musician (no he really is) and we just tell Jack to jump on the scale in our conference room at the start of each meeting.  Most people are utterly confused by this but I find it quite funny which is the point isn't it.  The scale mysteriously disappeared last week and I am convinced that HR had something to do with that.  I think I forgot my contribution to the United Way this year and I certainly didn't donate any blood.  I need that blood and who knows whose going to use it.  

I know this entire entry was quite pointless but I thought about it when I read somebody who is quite funny and its really annoying.  Without further ado the hilarious Ted King and his latest blog entry
