Kinda looks like I’m leaping up to catch the ball. Apparently I got confused about which kind of football I was playing.

This ALS Ice Bucket Challenge must be raising so much money for companies that sell bags of ice.

The #NoFilterShow! Probably the least appropriate—and funniest—thing to ever happen in this synagogue.

I get to pick my jersey number for my World Cup uniform! Please suggest a number and explain why that particular number would be awesome, meaningful, and/or funny?

At age 9, I decided to try out for a travel soccer team. This was primarily because I thought the uniform was really cool and my parents said I could wear it to church instead of my scratchy dress clothes.

But the week of tryouts, I was diagnosed with cancer and given a 50% chance to live. I lost my leg a few months later.

Fast forward twenty years. I finally got a travel soccer team uniform. This particular team will be traveling to Mexico in December for the Amputee World Cup.

Can’t wait to wear my new uniform to church.

A funny thing about comedy—and I mean interesting/sad/deep funny, not haha funny—is that it frequently grows out of deep personal pain.

To the audience, comedy appears to be a sign of internal joy, overflowing happiness that bubbles over into jokes.

But for the comic, it’s often simply a way to deal with the pain. An outward expression of inner demons.

When I made the clone, it turned out he had two legs. I mean, who wants to listen to a two-legged motivational speaker, right?”
