Good heavens, I'm pathetic. I've gotten so lazy lately that I haven't even felt motivated to blog in two weeks.

Let's break the silence with a suitably pathetic joke that I first heard about 25 years ago:

Q: What does Inspector Clouseau have in common with a male prostitute?
A: They're both Peter Sellers!

I've never heard that one before but my initial reaction was that is a really old sophisticated joke.
Pathetic 25 years ago yes...but nearly 40 years ago when most comedians didn't rely on vulgarity for their laughs it would have been pretty good..

One wonders whether Mr. Sellers ever heard the joke, which presumably made the rounds during his lifetime.

During my week away from work, I watched more television than I have done in a long time. Some cable channel (Retroplex, I think) showed all of the Pink Panther movies on Christmas, and the other night it ran "The Party". Never saw that one before. Hilarious! Anything that Peter Sellers touched was comedy gold.
