Ever notice that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, but anyone going faster is a maniac?
The Laugh Factory in Los Angeles invited comedians from around the globe to join its Funniest Person in the World Contest. Here are some finalists:
• In Paris, I am driving a Smart car, you know, the very tiny one. But I don’t do it much, because it’s too dangerous. I could get run over by a pedestrian. Mustapha El Atrassi, France
• Have you noticed that all bottled water has the “best before” date printed on it? The water has circled the earth for four billion years … but now it’s ruined? Ismo Leikola, Finland
• This is the tenth anniversary of my comedy career. It’s also the anniversary of my father begging me not to do comedy.
