Those who know we well know that I ain’t no comedy writer AT ALL. But, what I am is a writer who is not afraid to stretch some new muscles (and funny bones, too), which is why I have created this blog post from the YouTube short video above. I’m not saying this is going to be anything profound or intense, but I will promise to have fun with it and see what happens. Join me!
There was a balloon and a baboon. The balloon belonged to this little girl and was full of hot air. The balloon wasn’t full of hot air; it was the little girl. She was a hot-air balloon mess! One day, she was walking along with her balloon. What color was the balloon? How the heck would I know. Color it yourself! The little girl met up with a baboon who asked her, “Little girl with your hot-air balloon mess! Wanna scratch my hemorrhoids for me?” The little girl said, “Excuse me?” When she said that, the balloon swallowed her up whole but because she was too full of hot air herself, the balloon spit her back out. The baboon said, “Kazam! That was contagiously courageous and care to do it again?” The little girl said, “Excuse me?” Yeah, you guessed it. The balloon swallowed her up whole again and spit her out. The baboon took the balloon from the little girl, saying, “Excuse me!” Yeah, you guessed it. The balloon swallowed the baboon up whole but did not spit the baboon back out. And the baboon floated away in the balloon. The little girl looked up in the sky as her balloon and the baboon drifted away. She said, “guess that baboon won’t get his hemorrhoids scratched after all!”
The end of comedy as I know it….or not!
