Dave Chappelle’s Record Attempt Fails – Has To Pee

dave-chappelleAP reported

“There are only two rules,” Masada said Tuesday. “You have to continuously tell jokes that are funny and you can’t leave the stage, even to go to the bathroom.”

The result: the seven-hour, 34-minute marathon performance that Dane Cook turned in last year stands as the club’s record.

The Insider posted this account –

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dave Chappelle could be holding Hollywood’s comedy endurance record if he’d only been able to hold something else. The comic, who famously walked away from a $50 million deal four years ago to continue his Comedy Central TV show, was on stage at the Laugh Factory on Sunday, seemingly on his way to setting the club’s endurance record for continuous standup comedy. But then, five hours into his routine, he walked away to go to the bathroom and was disqualified, said club owner Jamie Masada. The audience wasn’t happy, Masada said, but he insisted that rules are rules where endurance comedy is concerned. “There are only two rules,” Masada said Tuesday. “You have to continuously tell jokes that are funny and you can’t leave the stage, even to go to the bathroom.” The result: the seven-hour, 34-minute marathon performance that Dane Cook turned in last year stands as the club’s record. The late Richard Pryor set the original record, two hours and 41 minutes, in 1980. Cook broke it 27 years later with a three-hour, 50-minute set. Chappelle raised the bar to six hours, seven minutes before Cook took the record back last year.

The first step is finding an institution that’s right for you. Then there’s a lot of anxiety: Who will be your roommate? Where is the library? What time does the dining hall close? How do you make a good impression with the people in charge? Will you make friends? A prison consultant addresses these concerns.

Mark McGwire Returns As Cards Hitting Coach

mcguireSTL Today reports –

The Cardinals will announce at a Monday morning press conference Tony La Russa’s decision to return for a 15th season as manager. Today’s run-up, however, features mounting evidence that La Russa’s return after a 2-week deliberation will be dwarfed by former Redbirds first baseman Mark McGwire’s return from a self-imposed 8-year exile to become the team’s hitting coach.

steve-jobs-smIP Watchdog reported –

Egads! Using an operating system is going to become like attending an online CLE, requiring you to pay attention enough to click to continue at the appropriate time? Even worse, in the version where the operating system disables functionality not only will you need to click to continue, but you are going to have to stop doing whatever it is that you are doing and pay attention to the advertisement!
