I know most of you are old enough to remember the TV show Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, that sketch comedy television program that ran from the late 60's thru the early 70's. After all, your TV could only get 3 channels (and the reception on two of those were sketchy). But for those few who have no clue - the show was known for its 'edgy' comedy skits against a back drop Sock it to Me psychedelic joke wall - and I don't mean Trump twittering at the border (though I would watch that show all night).
Hey, it was hilarious back in the day! I will admit, however, that the show needs an update. I have an idea for this spin-off. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you.... [self administer a drum roll using your index and middle finger on the top of your skull here]
Cohen and Marten's Laugh-In
See what I did there? "Cohen rhymes with "Rowan", and "Marten" with an 'e' is a weasel. (yes, I'm aware this may be redundantly repetitive, but two weasels for the price of one!) Instead of comedy duo Dan Rowan and Dick Martin as hosts, I envision Michael Cohen as 'the serial lying dumb guy' with his side-kick wise-cracking comfort therapy marten. Hilarity is bound to ensue. Of course we'll have to wait at least 3 years before Michael is available to begin taping, assuming he isn't shiv'd by his bunk mate Bill Cosby in the interim.
Now that I think of it, this show featuring dumb lying weasels is not a new concept and is actually every show from The View, to the mainstream news to late night pathetic comedians of today who are not fit to carry Don Rickles' jock strap (unless they wore it like a muzzle).
Hahahah [nervous laughter] of course Ginsberg isn't dead! Just because there have been no photos of her in the last several months [nervous laughter, sporadic giggling] do you think I'm some kind of conspiracy nut? [wringing hands, beads of forehead sweat] do you think 'they' would really go to any lengths, including employing a body-double to 'work from home' in order to save their unholy sacrament of infanticide? [nervous laughter, chattering teeth]....
