Friday The 13th Funhouse


Welcome back to the Funhouse! Whether you’re a fan of fun or of houses, you’re in the right place. Except that this isn’t really a place. It’s certainly not a house. Whether or not it’s fun is entirely subjective. But it’s Friday the 13th and apparently, today’s date is considered a bad omen to some and a long-winded shark-jumping movie franchise to others. It means nothing to me, truth be told, but it did provide me with a convenient excuse to write this pointless opening paragraph.

Shit, now I’ve started another paragraph and I have even less to say because I blathered on about Friday the 13th about as much as I could in the first paragraph. Why am I so devoid of introductory topics to lead into the obligatory Friday video, you ask? Because on the first of October, I promised all of you that I would refrain from discussing anything of a political nature for the entire month. I understand that this is my web page and as such, I can renege on that pledge if I so choose but it was also a challenge to myself so I’m sticking to it. Expect one hell of a catharsis on the first of November but in the meantime, let’s see what else there is to talk about.

I just hopped over to CNN’s Entertainment section in the hopes that I would find some ridiculous piece of trivial celebrity news about which to wax insignificant, but every headline seems to be related to the fat pig movie mogul. Of course, I could find plenty to say about that if I wanted, but it’s not really Funhouse fodder, is it?


How about those Knicks?

Alright, fuck it, let’s just get on with it. Here’s David Letterman stealing the show in a scene from Chris Elliott’s cinematic masterpiece, Cabin Boy:

      1. Oh shit, you better hide behind something then, I’m like Peter Parker when I get mad…wait, wrong guy. Gentle Ben? You know, the green dude, you won’t like me when I’m angry. Damn it, I’m too lazy to Google it.

      1. I do. It was equally creepy. It was kind of meta-creepy. Like, I remember the elderly father-figure (or maybe uncle-figure… I don’t know) was genuinely creeped out by Chris a lot of the time. It was sort of like Pee-Wee’s playhouse, or maybe the movies, where Paul Ruebens is full into it and even the CHARACTERS in those things seemed genuinely weirded out by him.

      2. The best part of that was the fact that his father on the show was played by his real father, Bob Elliott of the comedy duo Bob and Ray. As such, I imagine the weirded out, frustrated vibe came naturally to him.


  1. The world may not survive until November 1st without you, Paul! And as for the Knicks, they gotta play better defense and develop their you– … oh, I already used that response…

    In that case, “fuck Trump!” is all I’ve got left today. 😠

    That and, “another great funhouse! Have a good weekend, brother!”

  2. November can’t come soon enough…can’t wait for you to unload about the President of the Virgin Islands, you know, the one who doesn’t know he’s that president? *insert ‘are-you-fucking-kidding-me?’ eye roll here*
