Hey readers,

I had never really heard about Mitch Hedberg until a couple months ago, and holy crap have I been missing out on something amazing. 

Here's a video just so we all know what we're talking about. 

Now I don't know about you guys, but I think that is goddamn hysterical.  And also true: Koala bears are adorable. 

Though I'm pretty sure in real life it wouldn't be that awesome to hug one. I mean, it's been designed by nature to climb up trees and stuff, so that means some pretty gnarly claws, and I've made it one of my general goals in life to keep things with gnarly claws a manageable distance from my face. 

So, on that note, I'm pretty sure that Koalas are pretty much like the raccoons of Australia.  Cute to look at and all, but turn your back on them for one second, and they'll tear your nose off. 

But enough about Koalas.  Let's get back to Mitch Hedberg. 

Me and the LOL Brother have taken to sitting in the living room and reading print out of Mitch Hedberg jokes to each other.  Okay, part of this is because we can't afford a flat screen, but mainly it's because that Mitch is that funny. 

Here's some more Mitch Hedberg videos.

Author's note:  I had no idea that Elvis Costello was British.  But more importantly, why is that blowing my mind so much?  I'm confused. 

Mitch died a few years ago from a drug overdose.  I kinda debated about including that little tidbit, because I didn't want to bum everybody out. 

Author's note:  Because that bummed me out quite a bit.

i agree with your opinions on koalas. except for your use of the phrase "koala bear" as technically koalas aren't bears.

Besides the claws, I think they have TEETH. They gotta eat all that bamboo and stuff.

i hate it when animals aren't 'technically' what we call them. Like koalas..... and.. i dont know what else. Why can't they just be what they look like.

oh yeah. tomatoes not 'technically' being a vegetable. i know tomatoes aren't animals. If they were, they wouldnt be scary, tho.

Starfish, Monica. Starfish are not fish; they're echinoderms and should therefore be called "sea stars."

But try telling that to a class of third graders.

see, myself as a third grader, i would have liked knowing that. I could pretend i'm smarter than the rest of the world. (btw, i did know star fish weren't fish, but i didnt know what they were.)

Actually, Chris, i'm one of those 'technically' people too, and i hate myself for it.

And, PMM, i would have loved to have known what starfish actually are called, even as a third grader. i loved thinking that i was smarter than everyone else i know.

yeah, i was the kid in the front row.. "ACTually, Mr. Murphy.. a starfish isnt really a fish. its a..(what you said)

This is probably why kids have no problem with Pluto not being a planet; it's adults who are all up in arms about it.

Hey! First of all, awesome comments here guys. Let's go through it:

Monica: This Elvis Costello character is getting more complicated by the second.

Chris: But are Panda Bears bears then or are they in the cute, but not actually bears camp like koalas? Damn...I'm confused.

Elizabeth: Good point. You know, for some reason I never focus on teeth when I'm listing the reason that nature scares me. Maybe because it's so obvious that I never think about it, but yes, Koalas could definitely bite the hell out of you if you gave them the chance. The key lesson here: don't trust a koala.

Monica: I respectfully disagree, a tomato animal would be one of the scariest goddamn things I could imagine. Just picture it waddling down the street. Man...I just gave myself the heebies there.

Chris: Technically, you are awesome.

well, ben, panda bears are technically bears. i could get into the scientific deistinctions of what actually separates koalas from the bear family, but in reality my educational background is in history and i don't actually know anything at all about science.

I had never heard of Mitch before! I watched all three videos, he is (was) funny! Love the one liners. I also am going to change my name to Reese so I can take others' peanut butter cups!

For reals, Ben. I thought you would have been on the Mitch Hedberg train a long time ago. You may also like Demetri Martin. For the record, I enjoyed him before he got his own show.

Oh, and for you lovelies getting any Reese's ideas...

The negotiators appeared to be having a hard time defining what kind of cuts would occur at the end of the year 2012 if Congress failed to act on the committee’s recommendations.
