Be Thankful For The Rejects

Dan BandIt’s Sunday, Modern Philosophers, which means that a new The Nite Show With Danny Cashman aired last night.

Now that the show has been on TV, I can share some of the jokes I wrote that did not make it into Danny’s monologue.

Since Thanksgiving is this week, expect a ton of Thanksgiving jokes in this batch.  Sadly, the ones I wrote about Governor LePage’s defeat on Election Day could not be used given that he ended up winning.

Ironically, the Governor is scheduled to be a guest at the next taping, so maybe I can share some of those jokes with him backstage before the show.

Last night’s show featured a visit from Larry King and The Elephant Man (or at least a fictional version of those folks), which you will be able to see from the wonderful photos taken by Jennifer Murphy.  Thanks, Jen, for letting me use your photos!

Enough chatter.  Here are the Rejects…

What did you think of the Rejects, Modern Philosophers?  Did any of them make you laugh?

    Ouch to the Nutcracker joke, and I don’t think I have heard of a Tuba Christmas assembly or been within several miles of one either.

    The one about pardoning Biden made me chuckle. 🙂

    Mr. Rogers was my son’s favorite show. I couldn’t watch it because it put me to sleep.

  3. The “Nutcracker,” Mr. Roger’s sweater, and Freeport HS “Tuba Christmas were my favorites.

    I love that you’re on TV. I wonder if I’m related to that Rogers dude?…
