Man, Mitch Hedberg was a funny, funny guy. The comedy world lost one of its brightest stars when he died, no doubt about that.

I just saw a clip of him on Conan that I had never seen before, and he did some new material that was never released. I took the liberty of transcribing the clip I saw, so here’s some quotes for you and me.

“They say during the summer that drinks are ice-cold. I hope not, because that means they would be impossible to drink. They would be solid. ‘Here’s a beer, Mitch, it’s ice-cold.’ ‘Dammit!… I guess I could lick it.'”

“I read that last year, MTV’s Real World received 44,000 applications. That’s amazing, man. Such an even number. You’d think it would be 40,008… Maybe.”

“I’ve got a lamp in my hotel room and it’s got a three-way light bulb in it. If you don’t know a lamp has a three-way light bulb, man, it messes with your head ’cause you go to turn it off, and it just gets brighter. Like, ‘dammit light bulb, that is the exact opposite of what I wanted you to do.’ Then you turn it again, it gets brighter once more. ‘I will break you.'”

“I saw a commercial, it said, ‘forget everything you know about slipcovers.’ So I did, and it was a load off my mind. Then the commercial tried to sell slipcovers, but I didn’t know what the hell they were.”

“Now is a hippopotamus a hippopotamus, or a really cool opotamus?”

“I want to rob a bank with a BB gun. ‘Give me all your money, or I will give you a dimple. I will be rich, you will be cute.'”

“I got a belt on that holds up my pants, and my pants have belt loops that hold up my belt. What the hell is really going on down there? Who is the real hero?”

“That’d be cool if you were a drummer and you accidentally grabbed two magic wands instead of drumsticks. You’re pounding out the beat, next thing you know, your bass player turns into a can of soup.”

“I love cottage cheese, that’s why I want to try other dwelling cheeses too. I wanna try studio apartment cheese. Or maybe igloo cheese. Or if I’m feeling adventurous, mobile home cheese. Don’t eat mobile home cheese during a tornado; it would be devastated.”

“Dr. Scholl makes foot products. And he’s a doctor, which means he went to school for a long time, but it doesn’t take a lot to figure out that stepping on a cushion would be more comfortable. That dude wasted lots of time at school, because I would have bought that from a Mr. Scholl.”

“I wish they made fajita cologne, ’cause that stuff smells good.”

“Hey, if you can’t sleep, count sheep. Don’t count endangered animals, you will run out.”

“I saw this lady on TV, she was born without arms. She was born with her hands attached to her shoulders, and that was sad. But then they said, ‘Lola does not know the meaning of the word can’t,’ and that, to me, was actually kinda worse in a way. Not only does she not have arms, but she doesn’t understand simple contractions.”

“I like the hotels with the rotating restaurant. You know, I’ve never been in a rotating restaurant, but once I took my girlfriend on a merry-go-round and gave her a burrito.”

“I’m sick of ‘Soup of the Day,’ man. It’s time we made a decision. I need to know what the ‘Soup From Now On’ is.”


David Z just did a big update about his freshman year of high school as part one of a four-part reflective series. That’s probably a good idea.

Which means I probably won’t follow suit, but at least I thought about it.

Bedtime. I have to clean the pool tomorrow. But Nancy the Boss says no vacuuming until Tuesday, because it simply doesn’t need to be done. Sweet. Or something.
