The Seat Filler

For those of you who don't know, all of the big award shows (Academy Awards, Tonys, etc...) hire "extras" to be seat fillers so when a star gets up to go to the bathroom, you never see empty seats in the camera shots. I have been offered the opportunity to be a seat filler on a few occasions when I was in college but wasn't able to do it either time. I'd love to do it one day, although I really do it on a daily basis.

I have started to notice that there are a lot of pregnant women in Hoboken. Why have I noticed this? Well because just about every other day I give up my seat to a pregnant lady. I have a radar now and I immediately get up and give them a seat. Only once did a woman say no and after we went back and forth she was adamant about standing. So in a way, I am a seat filler. Although I'm saving a seat for two.

And now, the wheelchair from the future....

Oh yeah, because this makes so much sense (cents).

If you are a comedian, of course you are going to use your Mother-in-law in your jokes. It's a given. Well this Mother-in-law isn't going to take it any more. She's suing.

I've heard of a cat lover, but this guy takes it one step further:

I never thought someone would actually write an article about the best way to swat a mosquito, and I was wrong.

According to Jim Brasseur, a fluid dynamics professor at Penn State University, the best approach is to clap or slap from both sides — rather than a swat from one side only.

Thanks Jim. How many hours of research did it take to come up with this?

A NJ man shot his parrot because the bird annoyed the man as he watched a NASCAR race.

Authorities advised the father and his son that if another family pet — a Labrador Retriever — annoys anybody they should call police or the animal control office, reports said.

When asked what he was going to do with the cage he replied, set up a track inside and race my micro machines.

That's budee budee budee..all folks.
