That time Jericho, having never even hinted about possessing powers like this, started force-blasting the rest of the troupe. An incredible moment captured in animated gif form…

Andy and I improvised this over gchat today:

Andy: Watch where you’re going.

Nick: Yes, Mr. President. I’m sorry, it won’t happen again.

Andy: See that it doesn’t.

Nick: Now that i’ve got your attention

Andy: You seem to be in a big hurry Mr…?

Nick: In a hurry? Sure I’m in a hurry.

Andy: I was elected as “the calm president.” And I don’t need you or anyone else tarnishing that image

Nick: I’m in a hurry to show you how you can trim hours off of your daily routine.

Andy: Trim hours? Impossible. Out of my way, my boy.

Nick: Sure, I’ll move over, let me just- oops! I spilled this bag of dirt all over your carpet! Why, you’ll have to spend hours getting those tough stains out of the carpet, right?

Andy: Jesus H Christ, kid! I’ve got a press conference in 2 minutes!

Nick: And you wouldn’t want the press to see these stains. What would they think?

Andy: …I suppose we couldn’t have that. I’ll just call the cleaning crew.

Nick: No need, Mr. President! Luckily, two minutes is more than enough time to clean any stain with the Roto-Ultra-StainPlus-Vacuum! You just do what you do best: Stay calm! I’ll get out the vacuum here..

Andy: They’ll brand me the dirty president. Even more dirty than our unlikely last president, the unlikely dog president who dug around all the time, Jonesy.

Nick: Yes, Jonesy, probably left many a mess on this very carpet!

Andy: RotoStainPlus?

Nick: Roto ULTRA-StainPlus, Mr. President! Why, when was the last time these carpets got a good thorough cleaning?

Andy: You know, that ‘s a very good question. Probably not since the days of Jonesy

Nick: Let me just attach this attachment here… Well, it’s a good thing I bumped into you when I did! This place is in dire need of a good cleaning, and I’ve got the just the thing for it. Let me just plug this in here…

Andy: [to his advisor] I’m busy, Gerald. No time to prepare for the press conference!

Nick: Now, Mr. President, you’ve got a large house. On average, how much of your week is spent vacuuming?

Andy: Wow, um. I suppose 40 hours a week, give or take.

Nick: And you work from home, is that right?

Andy: That is correct

Nick: Now what if I were to tell you that the Roto-Ultra-StainPlus is powerful enough to clean up industrial office stains, yet gentle enough to work as a primary home vacuum?

Andy: Geez, I’d probably say, you’re full of hot air!!

Andy: Press Coordinator: 10 seconds Mr. President

Nick: Well it’s true, Mr. President! No longer will you have to invest precious time, money and space in maintaining a work vacuum and a home vacuum.

Andy: I must say that would take a load off.

Nick: It sure would! Now let’s get back to this dirt I spilled on the carpet. It’s been there for at least 2 minutes. It’s probably set in pretty well, wouldn’t you say so?

Andy: Definitely. That dirt’s not coming out. Can you excuse me for a moment?

Nick: Of course, Mr. President, let me just get out of the- OOPS! I spilled wine all over the dirt!

Andy: God dammit I’m doing a press conference!! It’s starting.

Andy: [walks up to podium]

Nick: No matter Mr. President!

Andy: Ladies and gentlemen, It’s a pleasure to be with you to talk about health care today.

Nick: I’ll start up this vacuum cleaner, and the stain will be gone by the time you’re done!

Andy: SHUT UP VACUUM DUDE But right now, there’s something

Nick: Let me just switch this on…

Nick: VROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMM

Nick: YOU HEAR THAT MOTOR?

Andy: I WANT HEALTH CARE TO BE AVAILABLE TO ALL AMERICANS. I VOW TO UNDO THE FRANKLY ILLOGICAL POLICIES OF THE DOG PRESIDENT.

Nick: THAT MOTOR SOUND YOU HEAR MEANS THAT THE VACUUM IS DOING IT’S JOB! WHOO BOY! LOOK AT THAT MUD GO!

Andy: I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!!!

Nick: YOU KNOW, ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT THE ROTO-ULTRA-STAINPLUS IS THE TRANSPARENT COVER! THAT MEANS YOU CAN SEE THE DIRT AND GRIME GO STRAIGHT FROM THE FLOOR, RIGHT INTO THE BAG!

Andy: [President runs over to Vacuum guy and starts punching him]

Nick: OW!

Andy: I’M SORRY EVERYONE

Nick: LET ME TURN THIS THING OFF..

Andy: DONT AIM THAT THING AT MEEE! OWWWWWWWWWW!

Nick: THIS BRINGS UP AN INTERESTING POINT- YOU SEE THOSE BLOOD STAINS THAT ARE HITTING THE CARPET?

Andy: Y…YEES

Nick: WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THE ROTO-ULTRA-STAINPLUS COULD CLEAN UP THOSE BLOOD STAINS?

Andy: THat would BE

Andy: [The suction makes the president EXPLODE]

Nick: Advisor: Oh no! What are we going to do?

Andy: Reporters: Gasp!

Nick: Don’t worry. I was prepared for this.

Nick: [vacuum guy takes to the podium]

Andy: You just killed the president!!

Nick: My fellow Americans. With all the economic strife in this country due to our last president, Jonesie the dog, wouldn’t it be great if we had something we could believe in?

Andy: Yeah!

Andy: Fuckin A!

Andy: This guy’s alright

Nick: The Roto-Ultra-StainPlus can pick up any stains on your carpet. And that’s coming from a regular Joe- Not some Washington Insider like Jonesie the Dog. So what do you say, guys?

Andy: Yayyy!!!!11

Andy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPywon2DYn4

Andy: [close up: the dead President's brain starts to congeal back together ala the T1000]

Nick: Thank you everybody! I accept your invitation to lead the country as President! Vacuums for everybody for the low price of $399.95!

Andy: New York Times: VACKO WHACKO GOT OUR BACKO

Nick: Subheadline: New vacuum packs a punch for paltry price

Nick: Sub-subheadline: The old president is dead

Andy: Two Hundred Years Later

Andy: Presidential Advisor: Let this be a lesson to you, President Kitty Cat

Nick: Meow!

Andy: A little cat dressed as a vaccum salesman walks in

Nick: Noooooooooooooooooooooo!

Jericho: At least I HAVE kids. How long have you been shooting blanks into Sheila?!
Andy: Whoa whoa whoa. How did you know about that?
Jericho: She told EVERYONE. She was always dropping it, so casual. Especially around the guys.

Dumb Joke for Monday, December 5, 2011

Posted: December 5th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Writing | No Comments »

I can’t get up in the morning without my Coffee. Coffee is the name of the man I hired to wake me up every morning. Also, he makes me my coffee, which I need to wake up. That’s why I started calling him Coffee. And also because he has a really bad cough.

Dumb Joke for Friday, December 2, 2011

I think even worse than the gift of the Magi might be the gift of the Magic Eye. Especially if you sold your eyes to buy it.
