    it was a longer joke but the gist of it is that Little Johnny is in class, their teacher asks them to tell a story and describe the lesson therein; Little Susie’s lesson was never count your chickens before they hatch, Little Jenny’s lesson was never put all of your eggs in one basket, and Little Johnny’s lesson was never mess with Uncle Neal when he’s been drinking

    Sadly i never really appreciated Norm for his brilliance. I always thought he was odd as fuck,which obvioussly he was. But i think overall i just wasn't exposed to him as much as i now realize i would have liked to have been. Since his departure i've become greatly exposed and wow..dudes fuckin hilarious. He may be gone but i'm glad he left so much behind to be enjoyed. Peace out Norm.

    4:19 my favorite Norm Joke: Weekend Update on snl. He put up two pie graphs and points out that they don't add up to 100 percent, because they were made by women. split reaction some laugh/cheer others boo. "That joke was actually written by a woman. Now you don't know what to do." he pauses a moment. "Just kidding we don't hire women."

    On Letterman he's telling the story of doing a charity show at a hospital but when he gets there he realizes its a Psychiatric Hospital for the Criminally Insane. So as the guy the walks him through to the theatre the guy starts bragging about the great performers they've had there, like Kenny Rogers and the Statler Brothers etc. Finally Norm gets into the theatre and before he can get to mic the crowd is yelling stuff like "nice shoes bitch", "they're yelling all kinds of criminally insane stuff, like one guy yells, 'where's the Statler Brothers'!"

    "Which Nascar driver died? Jeff Gordon? Earnhardt?" Dave Landau: I have plates at home. I'll bring them in. Good lord, those stupid "commemorative" plates they used to sell all the time. I used to see those and the other trinkets like Eagle and hawk statues, knives with a wolf carved into the hilt, and other junk. And I'd think "wow someday when I'm an adult, I'm not getting any of that crap." I was right.

    I’m goin off memory here so bear with me ha ja “So my neighbor tells me he’s a professor of logic in the college of science, and I say oh you don’t say fella well what’s exactly is this logic. So the professor say well I’ll give you and example and I say sure thing fella and he says do I have a dog house and I say yes, he says then you must have a dog right, I say yes I do, then that must mean you have a family and kids, yes I do. So that means your a heterosexual, yes I am I said. He see so I was able to know you have a family and your a straight male just by knowing you had a dog house so this is the study of logic. He tells him well okay it was nice meeting you you should stop by and eat some chicken with me some time. I then I need to go shopping so I head over to the bus stop and a guy say if you light a cigarette the bus arrives faster and this fella smokes the entire cigarette an still no bus. I look at him and the fella says an uh he says it works sometimes and sometimes it doesn’t how bout you fella and I say we’ll I meet my neighbor he’s a professor of logic at the university of science, you know what that is. He says no I don’t we’ll I’ll give you an example he say okay go on ahead and I tell him do you have a dog house? He says no I don’t. So you must be one of those gay fellas huh, and then the guy… gay fella invites me over to get some chicken with him.” One of the many great jokes and stories he’s told.

    I hate you, Stephen Crowder. Not because you lean right. Mainly because you’re a narcissistic asshole and not even the most funny guy on your podcast, but Norm and Elliott Smith (would def hate you too) are my favorite too. Alice Cooper sucks but you got it right twice. Change my mind. No need, brethren. Norm was the best. 💔 I just wish it would’ve been you. I also hope people know this is a joke. Kinda…..

    It’s interesting to watch the interviews when Norm wasn’t necessarily trying to be funny, but you got a chance to see how he really thought. Once you get through all the hilarious clips you will find these interviews and pay attention because the man was a thoughtful thinker.

    I had a doctor screening for family history ask about "old-timer's syndrome" and she wasn't trying to be funny. I had another doctor diagnose me as trying to starve myself despite my love of food, so when people try to act as though a medical professional is correct by default, they can professionally go fuck themselves.

    Absolutely you should continue with Norm in fact you should have skipped all other stories and been wall to wall Norm. Like you and Dave I agree that Norm was and still is the greatest comedian ever and when you really get to know him you realize he was incredibly intelligent and thoughtful. I have been struck by so many of the tributes to Norm by his peers and Bob Saget’s was especially moving.

    I’ve been consuming Norm clips for the last couple of years which led me to buy his book. I am now watching many of these clips over again and knowing that he was sick for the last ten years makes them so poignant. The list of truly great comedians is actually pretty short and for me Norm is at the top of that list for so many reasons.

    stop taking a legends death and using it to push your ridiculous narrative. cancel culture is just people choosing to dissociate themselves from someone who is ignorant. you can’t force people to give someone a platform if they don’t want to continue to support that person. actions have consequences and you just have to take those consequences on the chin and not blame some stupid modern day boogie man.

    On one hand, im glad to see any appreciation for Norm, and i am actually very happy to see that he crossed all political boundaries…… but, thats kind of the point with him. Norm was, as Bob Saget put it, “an accelerated man”. He was wise. He had no interest in politics, or partisanship, or division. You are not a (good) comedian, and you are not a deep thinker. You are the exact opposite of Norm. And i mean no offense. Im sure you’re a decent person, but this is the type of show that is very much what Norm fought against. Its not about “free speech” or “liberty”, its about being authentic, while also being nice.
