funny — Khosrow is Dreaming

November 3rd, 2008 — Tags: comedy, funny, overheard at mcgill

A guy sits down with a girl, takes out a cigarette and starts trying to light it. He has some extreme difficulty getting it lit, and has obviously never smoked before.

Girl (laughing): Hey, do you want some help with that? Guy: No, no, I’ve got to practice smoking. Let me do it. Girl: Seriously? You’re practicing how to smoke?

Guy: Yeah! It’s on my list of things to do. See? (takes out agenda) “Laundry, conference sign-up, smoke.”

Girl looks stunned.

Guy: I don’t want to look like an idiot when I go to Amsterdam!

The Job

Watching this video I’m reminded of the day labourers back home. They would all gather in a street corner (usually at a square) and every morning the contractors would come by and pick a few and go to the job site. Looks like the world runs the same way no matter where you are!
