"Everything is Amazing; Nobody is Happy" (Vid)

Don't know this guy named Louis C.K., and so I don't endorse his whole schtick because something tells me he's not Brian Regan-rated for content, if you know what I mean. But this video is going around, and it totally cracked up Jorge and me because we are old and do indeed remember feeling impatient when we dialed phone numbers containing zeros on our ROTARY PHONES because zero took the longest to dial. Have mercy. We had one just like this picture.

Oh my goodness...that was too funny and so very true! I nearly spit my water when he said "You non-contributing zero". LOL

This is funny! I have my Grandma's white phone just like your black one. It is hooked up and working in our family room. I love hearing it when it rings.

"How quickly he feels the world owes him something he only knew existed 10 seconds ago." So, so true.

And I loved "you're sitting in a chair in the sky!!"

We had that same black rotary phone, and the cord would barely reach the hall.

From facebook, no doubt? I've gotten this twice on Facebook. I LOVE IT!!

"It's going to space! Can you give it a second to get back?"

Loved it!

Darla said...

When my parents first bought a touchtone phone, the wiring in the wall was still for rotary. When you pushed a button you could still hear the dialing!

Reality check...hello....

Yea, I remember the days... of rotary phones and party lines.

I loved that he talked about how there is all this technology and still no one is satisfied. You know I don't remember as a child being irritated with 3 channels on the TV or that it went off at 12:00 midnight. I don't even remember being irritated that we had to stand near the phone to talk on it. We had a really long cord....

It seems the more technology we have the more we are irritated with the little things, like waiting in line at the grocery store, or the internet connection to work. I think I'll let my kids watch this...thanks!

i LOVE this video. i cant tell you how many times i've watched it and how many people i've shown it to. and for the record, he is definitely not a family friendly comedian. i looked up some of his other stuff out of curiosity and was not pleased. at any rate, this one is hilarious.
on the way to africa my dad and i kept doing all the airplane stuff back and forth with each other. it actually helped us keep a good attitude during the inevitable delays!

Carmen Gamble said...

I enjoyed that immensely...it's so true too. I think I'll hijack this one and put it on my FB page!

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

That is hillarious - only because it is so, so true!

Lotsa truth in this jest.

Laurie Ann said...

Hilarious! I so needed this today.

Darlene R. said...

samurai said...

Oh this takes me back. We had one too. I don't think it was black. Did you also have a party line? Oh I remember having one and old ladies getting on there and we couldn't make a call. Did everyone start out with party lines or was it just us poor (or tight) folks?

Oh, the noise they'd make. And yes, 0 being the longest....I was trying to spell the sound but can't. I can hear it for sure in my head.

jennifer said...

I love it! SO funny. SO true.

Ours was attached to the wall. It was the only phone in the house. There was a tall stool below it so you'd have somewhere to sit while you had a conversation. When I was in jr. high, my parents "splurged" and got a very long cord so you could sit on the couch to talk. . .it was 1982, and beige phones were all the rage. We had a black phone, and a beige cord. Even when I got married in 1993, my parents still had that ONE phone.

Sheryl said...

That was great.

Thanks for sharing with us, it is so true.

Renna said...

Omigosh, he was hysterical!!! I laughed, out loud, so hard!

I'm sending this to my 25yo daughter, who may or may not 'get' the humor, seeing that she's of the group he's poking fun AT. ;-Þ

That was so funny! We didn't even HAVE a phone when I was a kid! Came across your blog today and really enjoying it. The joys of technology eh? Neasa in Ireland.
