They Call Me Boo Boo Salad

In case we haven't told you yet, Carrie and I really like Ron White. We've seen his stand-up specials like five times apiece. If he's on, we're watching him.

I'm not a huge fan of the Blue Collar guys: Jeff Foxworthy (he's pretty good when not only doing redneck jokes), Bill Engvall (who I know little about), and Larry the Cable Guy (who, at least, talks funny), and I don't think he really fits with them. I'm not even sure how he draws the same crowd. He makes southern jokes, but they're more like convincing his hillbilly homophobic cousin that he's at least a little gay because -- when he watches a man-on-woman porno -- the cousin prefers for the man to have a "big huge throbbing cock."

So check out Ron if you haven't already. He gets our GLORY!blog seal of approval.

The other person we watch a lot of together is Kathy Griffin. She's someone else I didn't imagine I would like as a stand-up since she just talks about celebrities. But I wuz wrong. Her comedy is pretty new, since she's essentially just telling a story about celebrities she ran into, as if she's talking to a buddy, interrupting herself a lot and saying "I know, I know" and "Oh, that reminds me, I've got to tell you my Barbara Walters story later."

They're not our two favorite stand-ups (we probably like Chris Rock the best), but they're the two we enjoy watching together the most. As GLORY!blog fans, we thought you should know. This is the kind of thing we used to tell you before we became too busy actually -- you know -- hanging around each other for real.

Happy Thanksgiving Week!
