Morning Debriefing 7/15/11

1) Comedy Legend Don Rickles on Leno Part 1 & 2.

2) It should be obvious what measures you should take if accusing someone of joke thievery, but here’s a pretty comprehensive list on Splitsider, just in case you’re the comedy equivalent of sue-happy.

3) Yesterday, NBC’s Community Showrunner Dan Harmon had a great post about meeting George Gallo, the writer of Midnight Run and the magic of trying to do anything creative. If you haven’t already reblogged it, give it a read.

4) Best 30 Minutes or Less Podcasts from the Plop List

5) If you’re not reading the fantastic daily thoughts of Matt Champagne, perhaps start now by reading a conversation wherein Princess Leia hits on C-3PO.

C-3PO: Might I remind you, Princess, that I am a droid?
LEIA: Your excuses are so cute.
C-3PO: I am fluent in nearly all forms of verbal communication.
LEIA: Oh, I can think of one form you’re definitely not fluent in.

6) Puddin’-Touche

7) Stuff that you might have missed yesterday that we really think you should watch again: the new episode of the Compatish and Ryan Hansen “pranking” the Midnight Show.

11) Designer and writer David Yoon wants to make LA streets narrower so it can be Paris.  If you want LA to be Paris, go to Paris and stop complaining, just like those people who hate our hot dogs here vs. their hot dogs from wherever they came from.
