A New Batch Of Rejects Are Baking In The Oven

christmas-cookies-bakingHappy Sunday, Modern Philosophers.

Last night’s episode of The Nite Show With Danny Cashman was a rerun, so I don’t have any rejected monologue jokes to share with you.

The good news, however, is that we are taping four shows on Wednesday.

As a result, I’ve been locked inside The House on the Hill all day, writing new jokes.  The sad reality of it all, of course, is that most of this hard work will end up being used in upcoming Sunday Rejects posts.

That means that I’ve got several batches of Future Rejects baking in the oven, Modern Philosophers.  Mmmm…that does make The House on the Hill smell so good.

I spent the morning writing a batch of random jokes about Christmas, Hanukkah, and Winter in Maine.  I figured Danny could use those in any of the upcoming shows, and I just wanted to start writing.  He finally emailed the list of suggested topics at noon, but I already had a couple of dozen jokes in the oven.

The Holidays are such a great topic for comedy.  Who knew that the birth of Jesus was so darn hilarious?

RejectionGovernor Paul LePage is going to be the guest on Show #1.  So, that booking has been a bit of a challenge for me.

While I love writing jokes that mock the Governor who has never gotten my vote, I probably need to censor myself a little since the man is going to be there in person.

Or do I?  Hmmmm.  Okay, I’ll admit that I considered toning down my jokes at first, but in the end, I just wrote what I would normally write.

In other words, I probably crafted a big helping of Rejects to share with you next week.

Well, it’s back to work for me.  Lots of jokes need to be written before Wednesday.  I just wanted to check in, and let you know what was going on at The House on the Hill.

Hope you’re all having a great Sunday!

    Government LePage on your show? Wow, this is like a Christmas present, only i can’t tell if this means that you’ve been naughty or nice.

    I think you should write some jokes for the Governor to say about Danny. You think, Austin? Curry some favor with the Guv’ner? Also I bet the boss would think that’s a good idea.
