Pencils Laugh

As I rebuild my laugh practice vlog, I think about the reactions you have had to previous laughs. For some reason, the pencils laugh was a big hit. As well it should be, because I do indeed like pencils. What school teacher doesn't?

The pencils laugh came about after I made some new friends in a laughter workshop, where we laughed about pencils. What a great time that was! So I offer you, the pencil laugh.

Comedian Johnny Carson had pencils that he used to play with at his desk on the Tonight Show. Did you ever notice? His pencils had erasers on both ends. I really wanted some of those pencils. It suits my sense of the absurd that there can be pencils that have no points. Just like some conversations, I guess.

I remember many nights as a teenager sitting with my dad, watching Johnny Carson, and laughing until our stomachs hurt. One night in particular, Johnny did a bit about "Dickie the Stick". You had to see it. Dad and I laughed like crazy. It was one of the best times I ever had with my dad.
