  • Reader on the death of Mitch Hedberg

    Letters to the EditorWe welcome your feedback.


    Funny thing is, I didn't give a sh*t about the Pope, or Schiavo. But, Mitch [Hedberg's death], hit me hard (See PCR #263.--N). So here's a small sample of my faves from him.

    "I got an ant farm. Them fellas didn't grow shit."

    "I haven't slept for ten days, because that would be too long."

    "Last week I helped my friend stay put. It's a lot easier than helping someone move. I just went over to his house and made sure that he did not start to load shit into a truck."

    "I got my hair highlighted, because I felt some strands were more important than others."

    "I had a stick of Carefree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality."

    "I want to be a race car passenger: just a guy who bugs the driver. "Say man, can I turn on the radio? You should slow down. Why do we gotta keep going in circles? Can I put my feet out the window? Boy, you really like Tide."

    "I got in an argument with a girlfriend inside of a tent. That's a bad place for an argument, because I tried to walk out, and had to slam the flap."

    "I type a 101 words a minute. But it's in my own language."

    "I think Bigfoot is blurry, that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. Bigfoot is blurry. And that's extra scary to me, because there's a large, out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside. Run. He's fuzzy. Get outta here."

    "I don't have a girlfriend. But I do know a woman who'd be mad at me for saying that."

    "My sister wanted to be an actress, but she never made it. She does live in a trailer. She made it half way. She's an actress, she just never gets called to the set."

    "I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it."

    "If carrots got you drunk, rabbits would be fucked up."

    "I like vending machines, because snacks are better when they fall."

    "Pickles are cucumbers that sold out."

    "I was walking down the street with my friend and he said 'I hear music.' As if there's any other way to take it in."

    "2-in-1 is a bullshit term, because 1 is not big enough to hold 2. That's why 2 was created."

    "I know a lot about cars. I can look at a car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming."

    "This shirt is dry clean only. Which means...it's dirty."

    "At my hotel room, my friend came over and asked to use the phone. I said "Certainly." He said "Do I need to dial 9?" I say "Yeah. Especially if it's in the number. You can try four and five back to back real quick."

    "My lucky number is four billion. That doesn't come in real handy when you're gambling. "Come on, four billion! Fuck. Seven. I need more dice."

    "I love blackjack. But I'm not addicted to gambling. I'm addicted to sitting in a semi circle."

    "I don't own a cell phone or a pager. I just hang around everyone I know, all the time."

    "I think foosball is a combination of soccer and shish kabobs."
