make the day more enjoyable in several easy steps...

Employ Darren.

So this is an example of mature humour in the Sony Centre.
I come back from the 99p store (purveyor of almost out of date
canned food, reject toys, third grade garden tools) having bought
some canned salmon. I am amused at how EVERYONE working there is
Polish, as apparently the way it works, according to Olek's dad,
is that they import all the food extremely cheap from Eastern
countries, borderline legal.
On my return conversation goes as thus:

D:'Look at you coming back from the 99p store!'
M:'Isn't that where your mum works, she charges 99p...'
D:'Well my mum supervises your mum.'

A couple of hours later, D is selling a TV.
Woman customer goes: 'Imagine I'm sitting on a sofa'
and proceeds to crouch, in a rough estimation of such.
D plonks himself down on this imaginary sofa, and looks at the TV

for a little bit, turns to the woman and goes:

'Want a cup of tea? btw We really need to get a new sofa'

Genius humour. Discuss.

What's funny about an invisible couch and some fish? I don't understand the humor, Cliffy.

Please break it down for us silly Americans.

He does not represent America.

Pretty funny guy, that Darren.

Yup, he's got no respect for us Americans.
Funny story, but I prefer to piss off the guys at Circut City by staying for a long time, watching football, or the movie they play at that time.

Apparently acliff's definition of "genius" puts it a few notches down on the intelligence scale. That story was both predictable and unfunny.

So says the guy who has unofficially been voted least funny KKW member.
Genius humour doesn't have to be clever at all. In fact, it can be exceptionally dumb. You might even be able to see it coming a mile off, however, its when and how its said, and who its said by.

For example, no matter what you say, Spire, you just don't have the gift.

I especially like the part where I said I was funny! Oh wait, I didn't. Apparently you think you are, though, I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings.

I'm beginning to think that these half-witted retaliations aren't worth reading.
Anyway, I thought it was funny. Did he end up selling the TV?

A true testament to the power of a salesman's personality, he did indeed manage to sell it. The lady walked out, purse lighter, but with a big smile on her face. Its like a friendly mugging.

Yes, now I'm a moderator. Now that we've temporarily gone off topic, sort out your signature. Its too long. Read rules.

We'll see what Darren gets up to today, if he's working. The 10/10 sign, and the Hi sign will be out in force I imagine.

Narg, just because your puny unEnglish brain does not find the masterful Cliff funny is no testament to its true nature. For one so critical of others you have yet to make me laugh apart from at the picture you posted which was more of a pitiful cackle than anything else.

Cliff, I see the work boredom blues have struck again, its time you devised new ingenius ways to make both you and the KKWavefront members laugh.

To that aim, random pictures created in the mentally disturbed confines of the Sony Connect shop will be posted later.

Are these going to be pictures created by the mentally disturbed or pictures of the mentally disturbed.
I don't want to click on something and see some guy named Darren, dressed in a diaper and dickie having "tea" with a blowup doll in a French maid outfit.
