Demetri Martin is an awesome comedian. Check out his show on Comedy Central, or many youtube clips, or even his albums to find out more.
Here we recount a recent joke about vests.
"Vests exist to protect you from things.
A life vest protects you from drowning.
A bullet-proof vest protects you from getting shot.
A sweatervest protects you from having a girlfriend."
This bit was much too enjoyable not to post here where there is a particularly refined enmity towards all things sweatervest-y.
For those who are uninitiated, Demetri Martin offers forth a brand of "nerd humor" which
one might suspect would be popular among the mgoblog crowd. Some other examples:
A friend asks "Do you have a Plan B if this comedian thing doesn't work out?"
Martin: "Hell no! I number my plans"
Another joke about batteries:
"It's a good thing they don't have 'B' batteries. If they did, it would sound like you were stuttering when you asked for them."
Finally, a random joke:
"I wish I lived next to Carnegie Hall. Then, if someone asked me how to get to my
house, I would just say 'Practice, practice, practice, and then take a left.'"
And yes, this really doesn't have much to do with football. Other disclaimers:
this was not written by Demetri Martin. This was not written with any real
objective at all. Well, maybe one: to get you to go look up some Demetri Martin
clips and enjoy them as much as I have. Is that so wrong?
