5 Jolts of Joy

Posted on

It’s Friday, folks. Time to pry our eyes away from the stock market and the President’s poll numbers for a few minutes. And what better way to jumpstart the weekend than to partake of some pop culture jolts of joy.

GEORGE CARLIN’S BASEBALL AND FOOTBALL ROUTINE

I’ve listened to this at least 100 times over the years and it’s always funny. Thanks, George.

MONTY PYTHON’S MINISTRY OF SILLY WALKS

John Cleese is my favorite Python. This is one of his best bits.

THE NICHOLAS BROTHERS FROM ‘STORMY WEATHER’

I love everything about this: the music, the electricity, the dance moves that swirl like tornadoes.

BULLWINKLE J. MOOSE

Before Spongebob and Homer Simpson, there was this guy. Here, he offers a fine parody of the TV cop show.

SLEDGEHAMMER

I’ll always be indebted to Peter Gabriel (and a certain pair of dancing chickens) for this song.

Have a great weekend, people!
