Badgers? Badgers?

Had Darren, Cam and Joe over tonight for a movie. We watched UHF, and to my surprise it still made me laugh, and in parts… guffaw!
Which got me to thinking: where did my sense of humour come from, anyway? Here’s a list of people or things I think have influenced my funnybone, in vaguely not-really chronological order:

  • Monty Python and the Nesbitts, for dry wit
  • The STS, for general geek humor
  • Davin, for TYPEYELLING
  • Almost Live, for making fun of Seattle suburbs, especially Renton
  • Early 90s SNL, including David Spade (sarcasm), Mike Myers (kooky) and Dana Carvey (twisted)
  • Dave Letterman, for deadpanning
  • Greg at the UVic language center, for joy of general punnery
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer, for sarcastic wit
  • Jon Stewart, for more deadpan.

That’s a few of them, anyway. I’ll add to the list as I remember more. Who influenced your sense of humour?


  1. As you noticed at a recent BBQ…my dad. My humor follows his his quite thoroughly.

  2. blah…my older brothers…I’m shameless…
    some of my friends don’t understand me 🙂
