  As it is for many people, humor is one of my main passions in life and I have always been a big fan of the comedy of Monty Python, the Marx Brothers, W.C. Fields, and Woody Allen. I own videos of some of my favorite classic comedy movies like It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, Groundhog Day, The President's Analyst, and What's New Pussycat . I can watch these great comedies over and over and they crack me up every time. In the 70s I was a big fan of British comedy like Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and The Goodies, that were shown on American television. This is still some of my favorite humor. I miss those days, but thanks to DVD (previously VCR) videos and YouTube I can still enjoy them.

I'm also a big fan of Dilbert in the comics in the newspaper and some animated TV shows like Family Guy and The Simpsons.

Monty Python "And now for something completely different!"  
  Monty Python (Eric Idle, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam) produced some of what I consider the most hilarious comedy of all time. Back in the early 70s they had a weekly TV show that I never missed. I purchased the The Complete Monty Python's Flying Circus Megaset when it came out on DVD and now I can watch this great comedy whenever I feel like it.

Political satire
    I have had so much fun with political humor during the Bush presidency, but now that he has left office I will have to look for some new stuff.
Until I find it I am keeping these here because they are such gems.

Jokes
  Here are many jokes I have gathered online, mostly from emails. When I read something that is incredibly funny, or simply incredible, to extend its life I often preserve it here. I have "webified" any of these jokes that originated as email, retaining the original format as much as possible. This is one of the most frequently updated sections on my website so if you enjoy it I encourage you to come her often. New jokes are added at the top of the list. The ones with a year in the title may be "dated" but they are still funny.
