Tina Fey and I really should be best friends, we really should. You all think you should be best friends with Tina Fey, but you are wrong. She should be my best friend because of this:
On page 221 of her book Bossypants, she writes THE joke. That's right... you know the one. (Apparently that is not a joke native to Blue Valentine. It's an actual, real-life joke that people tell one another! People like me and Tina Fey! Jealous?)
Here is how she tells THE joke, as seen on page 221 of her book:
A pedophile walks through the woods with a child. The child says, "These woods are scary." The pedophile says, "Tell me about it. I have to walk back through here alone."
Granted, unlike me who says, "This is the funniest joke ever!" Tina prefaced the joke with, "An example of a truly rough joke would be this:" But, whatever. We're besties now! (Here's another excerpt from her book that all of you mama-types will find especially poignant... showing that Tina, like me, has a soft side despite our fiercely awesome and inappropriate sense of humor.)
Also, a side note on all this, my husband is now reading Tina Fey's book Bossypants. That's right... I have an awesome husband who reads Tina Fey books because he really is THAT cool.
