Friday Happy Hour: Fortune Cookie Wisdom

Original image

1. Last night, I went to see Brian Regan at the Community Theater in Morristown, NJ. He puts on a great show. What strikes me about Regan is that he's not more famous. When I heard Brian Regan Live in 1997, I would have bet my work-study paycheck that he'd get his own sitcom or HBO series "“ or at least not be playing Morristown on a Thursday twelve years later. Tell us someone who you think deserves to be more widely appreciated. (Comedians, authors, weathermen, etc.)


2. Let's stick with the comedy theme. Who's the best stand-up comedian you've ever seen live? If you've never seen anyone notable, who's on your I-want-to-see-them list?

3. The other night I found an odd message inside my fortune cookie: "Money or Love? OR NEITHER?" (All caps.) On the other side of the slip, the fortune cookie copywriters helpfully informed me of the Chinese word for "milk." What's the strangest fortune cookie wisdom you've ever received?

4. After years of dedicated service, my wife and I recently canceled our Netflix account (and immediately reserved a dozen DVDs from our local library). What's on your DVD rental list for May?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
