He can be quite funny at times. Perhaps he isn't as off the wall as you need?

^ Let's test that theory.

Vonny - how do you fancy each of the following: Eddie Izzard? Graham Norton? Jim Carrey? Jerry Seinfeld? Sam Kinison? Billy Connolly?

Using Q's little test, I have to put Lewis Black toward the top [just below Kinison]. Well actually above Kinison since Kinison no longer defends his position.

I have seen Kinison, Black and Izzard live and all three are blisteringly funny. All three are very good social observers that manage to make you ill at ease when looking at the stupidity of daily life.

We need more Lewis Blacks.

Frankly TK, I just think you're racist.

He sounds like a ranting shop owner, and none of his rants are remotely witty.

What strikes me funny about Lewis Black is the appearance of torment he feels at the same stuff the rest of us silently endure. He gives voice to that part of us that wants to rebel but cannot...the part that dies when the world subtly coats us all in an increasingly thick and paralyzing state of stupidity, irrationality, and apathy. He's a defibrillator for our sensibilities and our souls.

Yesterday they were suppose to install a second phone line in the house. I waited for the guy to show all day. Apparently he came to the house, saw the first one, noted that it was still live and decided I could not possibly have meant I wanted TWO lines and left.

Today I called, asked the problem, why the box and line were not dropped, got the explanation and then asked for them to come back out. After 20 minutes of trying to figure out how to restart the order [which somehow got canceled] and started determining their possible schedule [after I explained my wait and why I needed the line yesterday] they gave me a two week install date. I said that was not acceptable. Sound of dumbfoundedness on the other side. More talk, more late dates.

Wifie was getting concerned and finally when I had the supervisor on the phone along with installation dispatch I firmly asked just went it would be convenient for them since my convenience apparently had nothing to do with either the installation or screwup. It was installed at 7:45 this morning.

I quit rolling over for service about 15 years ago. I have been much happier since. Always rebel.

Why on earth does anyone still have a landline, much less two?

And TK's right, Lewis Black sucks. So there.

There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey. --John Ruskin
