I Reject November Snow, But Not These Jokes!

Marc SummersI hate what this November snow has done to my writing schedule, Modern Philosophers!

Because of the power outage and all the time I spent shoveling, I never got around to writing my usual Sunday Rejects post.  This week’s episode of The Nite Show With Danny Cashman featured Marc Summers of “Double Dare” fame.

Look, there’s even a photo of Marc on stage with Dan and Joe.  Thanks again to Jen Murphy for the amazing photos!

I had several jokes make the cut for Danny’s monologue this week, but as always, there are several that didn’t get to be on TV.  This is my chance to share them with you and give them their fifteen seconds of fame.

Speaking of jokes, I’ve got to get to work on writing them for Wednesday night’s taping.  Think good thoughts for me, Modern Philosophers.  I hope you get a laugh or two out of these Rejects.

Jaclyn on setBefore I go, I mentioned that my friend Jaclyn got to participate in a physical challenge similar to those from “Double Dare”.  Here is a photo of her wrapping another audience member in a garbage bag.  I sure hope that physical challenge didn’t involve a murder…

Enjoy the Rejects!

Last night was Halloween, which means that this morning’s walk of shame was from the bedroom to the garbage can to throw out all those empty candy wrappers you slept with last night…

Today is All Saints Day, the holiday on which Catholics traditionally pray to the saints to make their stomachs and heads stop aching from all the candy and booze they consumed on Halloween…

Election Day is Tuesday, so make sure to set your DVRs to records all those awesome campaign commercials you won’t be able to see again until next year…

CBS is planning to produce a TV series based on the popular Supergirl comics.  I’m not sure if I’m too keen about the show’s tagline, though: “Supergirl: you REALLY don’t want to mess with her at that time of the month!”

JaclynThe world’s first test tube baby penguin was born at Sea World in San Diego last month.  Scientist estimate it will be seven years until the penguin is ready to battle Batman for control of Gotham City…

Students at UC Irvine recently broke the world record for the largest pillow fight.  I’m proud to say that my fraternity brothers and I still hold the world record for the longest tickle fight!

Did you see this in the news?  A New Jersey cop crashed into a Dunkin’ Donuts with his SUV.  Sounds like the Case of the Drunken Donuts to me!

What did you think, Modern Philosophers?  Any chuckles in that bunch of Rejects?

I also added a photo of Jaclyn pouring salad dressing all over that poor audience member’s head.  Mental note: never eat salad around Jaclyn.

Remember, The Nite Show airs on Saturday night in Maine.  You can support the show by liking its Facebook page, checking out the You Tube page (why not watch the Timbo video again while you’re there???), and by following it on Twitter @TheNiteShowME.

I’ll be back with more Rejects next Sunday…weather permitting!

    Drunken donuts and election day made me laugh. I can’t understand why they didn’t make the cut.

  3. “Drunken Donuts” is a heckuva name for a franchise.

  4. JED says:

    I thought tickle fight and the Penguin were pretty good. None too shabby to be the rejects.

  5. markbialczak says:

    Yeah, the frat boy tickle fight was pretty funny, Austin! Glad to year you landed several this week. Way to go.

  6. Joseph Nebus says:

    I also liked the tickle fight one. It may be one of those concepts that just can’t miss, except of course for getting rejected.

  7. That first one should have been used. Totally. Walk of shame, indeed. Ha.
