The Rejects Strike Back

RejectionA long time ago, Modern Philosophers, in a galaxy far, far away…

Actually, it was Wednesday night at The Gracie Theatre on the campus of Husson University, when The Nite Show With Danny Cashman taped three new shows.

The first of those shows aired last night, which means I now get to share some of my jokes that did not make it onto the air.

Modern Philosophers, I give you the Rejects.  The Force is strong in these jokes…

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was in Maine this week, helping Governor Paul LePage campaign in his run for re-election.  LePage promised to return the favor if Christie decides to run for President.  Ironically, election season if the only time you will ever use the words “run”, “Chris Christie”, and “Paul LePage” in the same sentence…

With less than a month to go until Election Day, Maine’s Gubernatorial Race is tighter than Governor LePage’s slacks after he hits the all you can eat breakfast buffet at Governor’s…

DraculaIn the wake of Adrian Peterson’s recent legal troubles, NFL defensive coordinators are kicking themselves for not realizing that the best way to stop Peterson is to put a misbehaving child on the field with him…

K-Mart was recently breached by hackers.  Authorities are puzzled by the crime as they have no idea why anyone would want the banking information of people who shop at K-Mart…

A Bangor nursing home has reported a maggot infestation.  While state officials are still investigating the incident, Stephen King reports that he is 300 pages into the chilling novel about it…

James Earl Jones is returning as the voice of Darth Vader in “Star Wars Rebels”.  According to his agent, he almost turned down the role out of fear of being typecast…

The New York Yankees have talked to third baseman Alex Rodriguez about the possibility of his playing first base when he returns from his season long suspension.  The morale of the story?  If you use steroids, guys, you might never get to third base again…

nite logoAccording to reports, the price of home heating oil has dropped considerably in Maine over the past month.  Experts say this is due to the fact that Maine political candidates have produced so much hot air that Mainers no longer need to pay for oil to keep their homes warm…

So what do you think, Modern Philosophers.  Did any of these jokes tickle your funny bone?

If you live in Maine, I hope you are watching The Nite Show when it airs on Saturday nights.  I’d also love for you to join me at a taping.  Please let me know if you’re interested in attending.  The next one is on November 5, and as an added incentive, I’ll probably blog about you if you come to check out all the excitement live.

For those of you outside of Maine, you can support the show by checking out its You Tube page (where you can find the “Timbo” sketch), liking the Facebook page, or following the show on Twitter @TheNiteShowME.

As always, thanks for reading my blog and checking out my rejects!
