#214 Heracross (AMERICROSS!) [Made from a Wild Cherry Pepsi Can]
Which to acknowledge first? We SURVIVED THE APOCALYPSE! It didn’t seem all that bad in Iowa. Iowa. That’s where America is.
It’s a long story. At the beginning of the semester, I was offering PKCNs to my college friends. My lifelong friend, Zach, wanted a Heracross that was colored Red, White, and Blue. I came up with the portmanteau ‘Americross’, and lo and behold a can was born.
I’ll be giving this to Zach for Christmas. I think he’ll be happy. So much so that he laugh silently. That’s another long(ish) story. Zach laughs really quietly. It’s not external at all. I used to refer to it as an asthma attack, but Zach claims that this method of laughter is polite to moviegoers. Anyway, one day in chorus, he was standing behind me. I heard him laughing. I couldn’t figure out why but I started laughing too. I turned around to see why he was laughing…poker face. Which made me laugh even harder. So one day in chorus I just cracked up like a mad man.
I should make a Michael Ceracross.
Anyway, I wrote this sketch a few years ago. Yeah, it’s five seconds long and the real funny guy is Luke, but here’s 'How Much Coffee?'
I finished up Christmas shopping last night and I have yet to see ANY of my friends in a week so I think I might do that. Although I do have something I need to pick up. I wish there were more hours in the day.
I hope you like Americross, I worked hard on it. I hope you have a joyous break, regardless of its length. Here’s your goal for the day: See if you can make someone laugh so hard it embarrasses them. I pulled it off last night with one word. Setup and context, my friends. Setup and context. Of course, Luke does it in that video with 0 words. Maybe it’s only funny if you know him. I don’t know.
