When I was really sick...in the worst of it...I liked to soak in the tub, close my eyes...and imagine that I was somewhere else...

...these two really helped...

If you haven't already seen this...

...some Australian televison "personality" tries to tell the Dalai Lama a Dalai Lama joke...which bombs...which the Dalai Lama, then, thinks is pretty funny...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlIrI80og8c

(but they forget the rest of the joke...the Dalai Lama gives the pizza guy a twenty and asks for his change...and the pizza guy says: "change must come from within").

What a weird world...

Just realized that one of my favorites from the Hawaiian islands is actually a song involving a giant EEL...

...a giant puhi...so, of course, I had to post this here:

Video shows a children's pageant acting out the legend, folktale...almost too cute...

And a very nice rendition by the Brothers Cazimero (of the same tune):

And, here, by Iz:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvxFv_Dq ... re=related
"Legend tells of a maiden from Kahakulaoa, Maui, kidnapped by an eel. Her brother, intent on saving her from the eel's cave, summoned sea creatures to help. All refused except the `opihi, who clamped themselves over the eel's eyes, blinding him. The brother was able to rescue his sister. `Ôpae is shrimp, Pûpû is seashell, Pipipi is mollusk, Kûpe`e is marine snail, `Opihi is limpet".

Raising Caine...Michael Caine impressions. I find this strangely funny. Blows my doors off. Not many people know that.

This Is How Michael Caine Speaks - The Trip - BBC Two (WARNING: "F" word used. Don't follow the link if you find the "F" word to be 'F'-ing offensive).
