Why I’ll Never Make It as a Standup Comedian.
BY ED MURRAY
I’ve never noticed a discernible difference between how black people walk and how white people walk.
My girlfriend isn’t obsessed with shopping, nor is she easily distracted by shiny objects.
I don’t mind putting the toilet seat up when I urinate.
I rarely fly.
I’m not convinced that we ladies need to stick together.
I kind of like kids.
I don’t think that the world’s problems could be solved if women, instead of talking too much when they’re menstruating, would just perform more unsolicited fellatio.
I’m not as confident as you are that you are indeed right.
And, no, I don’t know what you mean.
