Larry’s First Joke

Larry’s first joke bombs in a way that defies the very laws of math, physics, space and time. Hear about Larry using the LMDS motto for the first time. He also takes a bold stance AGAINST flying planes by committee. And learn what a “dental chart club” is.

How much can you pay for a mediocre breakfast in a New York City hotel? You could buy a month’s worth of Dunkin’ Donuts for that money, that’s all we’re saying.

Larry talks about to having nothing but respect for France and nothing but love for Old Spice. And speaking of toiletries, we get an update on the five bar soap parlay.

Quote of the week:
“It doesn’t burn unless you take too long to blow it out. How true that is, for life in general.”

Vocabulary builder word of the week:
“Dudgeon” — noun — a feeling of intense indignation (now used only in the phrase ‘in high dudgeon’)

    Jean Shepard also has a cameo in A Christmas Story. He is the bearded man in the department store who informs Ralphie that they are not at the start of the line and to see Santa.

    Good job, Kyle. Nice to see folks take some pride in their work.

    I’m quite sure I would have taken that coffee carafe after seeing that bill. Spite has always been the world’s equalizer.

    Happy Hanukkah, Larry! A quick word about the theme song…maybe it doesn’t make you laugh everytime you hear it, but there’s something very cozy, warm, and familiar about it. I’m trying to pick it out on my guitar (I know, I know, no tube) but so far my in-laws are getting a real kick out of it.
    (They may be a bit sloshed on eggnog but we aren’t the type to complain).
    Mazel tov!

    Something I didn’t know before listening to the pod-casts — Larry’s good with voices. Did you hear him do Sheldon Leonard’s voice from “It’s A Wonderful Life,” just for a few words? Great!

    (Sheldon Leonard — now there’s a great, old-time character of a vanished breed.)

    Dear Larry,

    To quote Ace,”I love me some Larry Miller!”. I had to laugh at your rural southern New Jersey prom lynching story, as I am writing from Mullica Hill, NJ (google it). I promise to try to research the story to trace it back to the school & town you played in. Don’t worry. I’m sure all has been forgiven by now (hopefully).

    Non Quid Geminus,
