Today’s breakfast topic:
How many Milton Berle wannabees do you know, and do they endear themselves to you?
- I know several people who consistently and constantly have to “be on” – that is, they have some need to always play the clown, the comedian, the life of the conversation. Yet, they repeat jokes ad infinitum that are so old, the Twelve Apostles would roll their eyes at weddings when they heard them.
The funniest thing about people today who tell jokes like this? Well, they tell it as if you never heard it before, as if they created it.
Bores, they are.
