Old, but still funny

I’ve had a certain e-mail address for what seems like forever. Or at least since I was in college. This means that tucked away in some of the folders are some really old e-mails, some from people whose faces I can barely recollect.

As I was looking around for something in those dusty archives this morning, I came across one my brother sent me way the heck back in the 90s. Back when it was topical. Nov. 20, 1998 to be exact. But you know what? It’s still funny, in a dated, decade-plus old, nostalgic kind of way.

Anyway, for a quick dose of humor to send you on your way for a well-deserved three-day weekend, here are your Friday funnies courtesy of a really old e-mail from my brother.

TOP TEN TV SHOWS IN IRAQ


10. Suddenly Sanctions
9. Buffy the Slayer of American Imperialist Dogs
8. The Brian Benben Bin Laden Show
7. Children Are Forbidden From Saying Anything Darndest
6. The Price is Right if Saddam Says it’s Right
5. Achmed’s Creek
4. Wheel of Fortune and Terror
3. Allah McBeal
2. Mad About Everything


And the number one show in Iraq in the late 1990s was:

1. Husseinfeld

Have a great weekend everyone.

Now what would a current Top Ten list look like!!! ??? (Next week, perhaps?)

Liebchen said...

Ooh, I agree - let's see an updated version.

And I don't know why, but Achmed's Creek just makes me laugh.

Three day weekend? I wish I had a three day weekend. *sigh*

Foxy - Humm, interesting, but that would require a greater level of creativity from me than I'm willing to expend. But we'll see...

Liebchen - That one's always made me laugh too, but the one that really worked for me was Suddenly Sanctions!

A - Well, then maybe you should get to work on making your country pass some laws granting everyone equal rights...oh, wait a minute. Yeah, nevermind.

It is most assuredly still funny.

Think Saddam would (have) be good at the Showcase Showdown?

i find this WAY too funny right now. perhaps that's a sign it's time to go home? but i pretty much love this, and probably more than i would have in 1998.. :-)
