until rewatching it on youtube, i believed that the funniest thing ever screened was the singing bush in the three amigos, followed by dave chappelle's take-off on sesame street. the singing bush didn't age well, but i have a deep love for inanimate objects (and puppets) that talk and sing.
on friday we went to see avenue q at the orpheum. parts of the show were funny, but i think my expectations (and ticket prices) were way too high. my husband asked me afterwards if there was a secret backstory that made everyone else laugh so hard - and i wondered the same thing. but i think we weren't as in to the coming out jokes as others.
