Patrick’s Friday News Round-Up (6)

Last Friday night, I was laying on the couch, wrapped in a blanket alternating between sweats and chills, when the ole' YouTube algorithm recommended a favorite comedian of mine – Norm Macdonald.


I don't know how or why the YouTube algorithm knew I was sick and angry, and that I could use some sardonic, deadpan, biting humor to brighten my night, but it did and it worked. I watched a compilation of Norm rattling off OJ jokes for Weekend Update, his infamous View appearance, and some other politically incorrect viewbait that worked in a different era, but would get him tarred and feathered by the identity thought police of today. Actually, he was tarred and feathered by them back in the day, too, but you catch my point.


I think my favorite clip was when he trolled Courtney Thorne Smith and Carrot Top on Conan:

Obviously, I was a bit weirded out that only a few days after my Norm binge, the dude died from cancer, but I guess that's how my uncontrollable psychic summoning powers work. I sincerely apologize to Norm for causing his death. RIP.


Now to this week's news round-up...
