Okay, that got two spit takes on my laugh-o-meter:

  1. For some reason, the combined stream of consciousness “pancake, Volkswagen, alligator and sippy cup” got to me.
  2. Luther “Unkosher as a lobster roll” Jones got to me for the incongruity of it all — kind of what living in New York must do to people on an hourly basis. In 1980, I was walking with a friend to his parents’ luxurious apartment in Manhattan (can’t remember the exact location) and was amazed that the street seemed to alternate between run down crack houses with bums and addicts on the curb and luxury buildings with doormen. It’s probably not like that any more, but that shocked the hell out of me.
  3. Honorable mentions: Max “Dirty Diapers” Jones and Danny “Campfire Handjob” Jones
