WE PRESENT...THE WORLD LEAGUE OF HUMOR

BY WORLDWIDE POPULAR VOTE,
HERE THEY ARE...
THE PLANET'S FUNNIEST PEOPLE, ALIVE OR DEAD, WHO WILL BE SUMMONED TO SAVE THE GALAXY'S MOST SCREWED UP CELESTIAL BODY
The top 15 are (as voted upon by people in England, Australia, the United States, Canada, at least, near as I can remember; note there's a huge tie at the end with two votes each):
1. The Monty Python crew (John Cleese 3 votes, Michael Palin 2, the whole gang itself, 4)
2. Jerry Seinfeld (3)
3. Peter Sellers (3)
4. Mike Meyers (3)
5. Woody Allen (3)
6. Mel Brooks (Fronty's Blazing Saddles included) (2)
7. Bill Maher (2)
8. Martin Short (2)
9. Stephen Colbert (2)
10. Bill Stewart (2)
11. George Carlin (2)
12. Stephen Fry (2)
13. Spike Milligan (2)
14. Stephen Wright (2)
15. The Two Ronnies (Ronnie Barker) (2)
Please enjoy these samples below of the kinds of minds that will be inaugurated on Jan. 1, 2007, to begin dealing with political and religious leaders to usher in the dawn of a new global era of co-operation.
And thank you for exercising your democratic right to save the world.

  5. EVERYONE:

    Only the top three You-Tube vids appear on the main page of the post because of space limitations.

    The other two (Mike Meyers and Woody Allen) can be found on my sidebar.

    Keshi:

    Yeah, indeed. Sorry, but the Aussie vote was split between you, Lee and Aidan.

    Lots of single votes for Aussie comics, but no more than one each...Crikey!

    Lee:

    Doh! I got that you were kidding. Want a fight anyway? Put up ur dukes, kiddo.

    Yes, I agree we should have a woman. However, no woman garnered more than one vote.

    Still, this is democracy in action. As supreme being of the World League of Humor, I hereby appoint Wanda Sykes.

    HE:

    OK, Homo Nerd Boy, this is the absolute HEIGHT OF YOUR ANAL ANOMALY DISTURBANCE.

    First, you voted for both the guys you're now laughing at as selections.

    Second, I have no pathological need to sort and categorize as you do.

    But hey! Be my guest...go crazy.

  11. Despite the fact that we'd all like more folks on this not-so-august body, I think we've all lived up to the concept that sometimes it's good to see the jester on the throne
