Happy Keister

My Fellow Comedists,

This weekend as our Christian friends celebrate their holy day of Easter, we Comedists celebrate our holy day of Keister, a day dedicated to that part of the human anatomy that not only sounds funny, it looks funny. The displaying of one's backside, mooning, is generally greeted with laughter. We call someone the "butt" of a joke. We snap towels or goose someone from behind. When something is comically wrong it is said to be "ass-backwards." What is it about the very appearance of the derriere that makes it humorous?

A few classic rump jokes:

Did you hear about the woman who backed into an airplane propeller? Disaster.

What do you get if you sit on a waffle iron? Hot crossed buns.

Your momma's butt is so big that she gets taller when she sits down.

Other offerings?

Live, love, and laugh,

Irreverend Steve
