Someone Left a Doughnut, and a Receipt for the Doughnut, on Mitch Hedberg's Grave
Geege Schuman stashed this in Comedy
Stashed in: R.I.P.
AND a receipt?!
Last year, comedian Marc Maron said of the late Mitch Hedberg: "He's not hinged to a time and he's not hinged to a topic. He was a real, kind of a poetic mind. So it's a rare thing that you can sort of revisit a comedian any time and it still has a vitality to it and I think that's why Mitch is so kind of ever-present."
Maron's sentiment perfectly describes the power of Hedberg's legacy more than a decade after his death. Escalators can still never break—they only become stairs.Sorry for the convenience. Every book is still a children's book if the kid can read. These truths are self evident and hilarious. Like the one about the doughnut receipt:
I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughnut. I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I'll just give you the money, and you give me the doughnut. End of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I just can't imagine a scenario where I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. Some skeptical friend: "Don't even act like I didn't get that doughnut! I got the documentation right here. Oh, wait it's at home. In the file, under D."
In the file, under D for doughnut?!
Hedberg discovered absurdity in everyday situations. :)
Well the receipt does add to the absurdity. :)
