"A Wagon Without Springs..."

By Taft Ayers

Henry Ward Beecher said: "A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.”

I am a firm believer that three things about humor are solid truths:

1. We must laugh often
2. We must laugh at ourselves
3. Humorous people are blessings

All of this I say in order to present you with another profound truth.

Are you ready?

Hold on....

...I gave you a very wise saying from Beecher earlier, here's another: "There are two types of people in this world. Those that think Will Ferrell's funny and those that don't."-Taft Ayers

He is the funniest actor/human that I know of.

I become pretty judgmental when someone tells me... "Will Ferell? Eh...he just doesn't do it for me."

I would like to open the flood gates.


(Yes, you can include the Saturday Night Live Skits..after all, he did resuscitate the show for a few years)

No love for Ron Burgundy?

Or what about on SNL when he models nude for the art class.

Quote: "I took the hepatitis test at the blood clinic. I did pretty well. I got an A, 2 Bs, and a C".

Most of my favorites are already on here:

-More Cowbell (also, one of the only times I'm not scared of Christopher Walken)

-Buddy the Elf ("I like smiling. Smiling's my favorite.")

-Harry Carey (I work, "Norm, if you were a hotdog, would you eat yourself? I would. I'd slather myself in mustard..." into conversations far more often than is probably appropriate or even funny.)

However, no one has yet named:
-Marty Culp, high school music teacher ("We're so happy to be stepping in to perform at this year's prom. Your schedued band, the Scooby Don'ts, had van trouble.")
