Hi everyone,

It's me.  I just wanted to say hi from the toilet.  The picture above was taken in the hotel room in Santa Fe.  In every hotel room across the globe, there is a mirror located across from or adjacent to the toilet.  It allows you complete and total access to a view of yourself going to the bathroom.  I happened upon this when I was using the facilities and looked up and noticed: hey!  It's me.  That image cannot be unseen.  And yet, hotel chains around the globe insist upon this feature.  In every city, I have seen mirrors on the backs of bathroom doors, mirrors on walls across from bathrooms, and mirrors on walls parallel to the toilets.  I guess the next step is a mirror on the ceiling, or better yet, a floor mirror.  In the time it takes engineers to build that mirror, this will have to suffice.

In non-bathroom related news, a lot of people say, "Joe, you're so talented, hilarious, and prolific, is there anything you don't show?"

Good question.  For every hysterical video we've produced that has amassed over 7 views on youtube, there are countless ideas that I've saved until the time when I burn out creatively.  Here are some examples of what you didn't see:

1. Interpreter: When President Hu visited Obama last month, I wrote a skit in which I was the interpreter for both the President and Hu.  Using real clips from youtube, I would misinterpret and misrepresent each presidents' remarks until war broke out.  Hilarious.

2. Reverend Joseph Episode # 14: In a strip club, I marry a man and the stripper who gives him a lapdance.

3. I read that the King of Jordan dismissed his entire parliament to stymie protests in the wake of the Egyptian revolution.  I find this to be hilarious.  The skit involved protesters clamoring for change and the King coming down from his palace and chanting slogans with protesters saying, YOU guys need to go!"

There are others but you'll have to be patient.

Uncle Joseph
