Hilarity Ensues....I promise

I know I haven't posted anything on here in a while, and again I apologize, but I swear Chris and I actually are doing work for Hilarity Ensues. As you might notice, the message board is temporarily down as we re-configure the site. Chris has developed a really sweet look for the main page and we are working on various other aspects of development before we can officially "launch" the site.

I'll say it again: If you would like to be a contributing writer, columnist, blogger, photo/audio poster, or anything else you feel you might be able to contribute that is original and funny, let us know soon! You can e-mail me with any ideas or suggestions you might have at THIS NEW ADDRESS: bryanlewis@hilarityensues.net

Good things to come soon

Well hey there. I know I haven't posted an entry in a long time. There really isn't a big mystery behind it. (a) I have been playing poker online for about 4 or 5 hours a day (b) I haven't had any ideas worth posting about lately and don't want to post just for the sake of having something here, and most importantly (c) I have been working on a new web site.

Some of you may have been to the message board that I run with a friend of mine at http://hilarityensues.to.md

I was talking to the guy I co-founded it with, Chris, and I mentioned the idea of turning it into an actual site, not just a message board. We're not sure exactly what kind of site it's going to be as of now, but it will be based around humor. The new domain we got for it is http://hilarityensues.net, but it won't actually be up for another couple weeks. For these next couple weeks I will be spending a lot of time preparing stuff for the site so don't expect any new entries unless something really awesome strikes me (unlikely).

If you think you have something to contribute to hilarityensues.net, Chris and I are currently taking ideas. It could really be almost anything: articles, funny pictures, links, a blog, music, etc...anything as long as it is ORIGINAL. If you feel like you have something creative that you want to share with the online world and would like a site to have it published on, contact us.

Send any ideas, questions, comments, hate mail, etc, to hilarityensues.net@gmail.com

Random Observations - March

Not necessarily intended to be funny. These are just some things I've noticed and thought were interesting.

-When you're pissing at a urinal, do you ever notice that if there's a discoloration or some other kind of abnormality in said urinal, you will almost always aim for it with your piss?

-Occasionally if I forget to shut a door upon entering a room, I'll hear someone say "Were you raised in a barn?" (this happened much more frequently when I was younger). Where the fuck did this expression come from? Do people who live on farms or in barns habitually leave doors open? I'd like to find out.

-Ever get that little thing in your shoe or sock which pokes one of your toes very sharply? It's like a little needle or tiny sharp stick that is more annoying than painful, but very agitating nonetheless. Upon further inspection of said shoe/sock, however, there's never anything there. What the fuck is the deal with that?

-How come there is such a huge difference in the amount of time between clipping your finger nails and toe nails? I guess to answer this question, you'd have to investigate why toe nails grow at an abnormally slow rate when compared to finger nails. I think that for every time I clip my toe nails, I have clipped my finger nails at least 3 or 4 times. And it's not like I'm walking around with 7" toe knives attached to the end of my toes, they just don't grow at the same rate. Anyone else notice this?

-Will (the morning after a night of hard drinking): Yo, if you get me a water you can have one from my secret stash. I just want to lie in bed for a while and keep farting.

(5 minutes later, Will is still awake)

Will: I can't believe I'm using up all my snooze time lying here and farting.

-Ever look at someone that's sitting down in a chair (in a classroom, for example) and you've never seen them when they're upright? Then, when they get up, you realize they're about twice as tall as you'd imagined them? Shit happened to me today in class, it was very strange...
