Updated – Deep Thoughts – by Jack Handey

Do you remember the “Deep Thoughts” segment on SNL?  They were always good for a giggle, I thought.

I was going through some old saved e-mails (yeah, work e-mail) and I discovered this one I had received from a friend and co-worker.  The co-worker’s retired now (lucky devil).

In the interest of making space on my company’s e-mail server, I’m going to delete the e-mail.  But not before I preserve these gems for a bit longer here on the ol’ “internets”.  Enjoy this bit of a Monday morning funny:

EDITED TO UPDATE:

A blogging friend (Thanks Marsha!) left me a comment entreating me to visit http://www.deepthoughtsbyjackhandey.com/ for the full effect.  Dutifully visiting I found the following copyright notice: All Material copyright by Jack Handey.  No Deep Thoughts may be reproduced or posted on websites without permission.

So, in deference to the rights holder, I have removed the Jack Handey Deep Thoughts material from my blog and highly suggest you visit the linked site to enjoy Jack Handey’s Deep Thoughts.

I also learned that Jack Handey is a real person and it was he who narrated the Deep Thoughts segments on SNL.

They also have a neat little widget you can put on your site.

  1. Deep Thought – if you post something on a blog, then take it down because it’s covered by copyright (and you’re a decent human being), it’s kinda cool that it still sort of exists in Google Reader… like a parallel universe or something!

  2. I stand corrected on the narrator! Phil Hartman merely introduced the bit. I see the light. And I agree with daisy; you get an A+ for taking down copyrighted material.

  3. Deep Thought- if you read a post on something cool like Deep Thoughts and then take it down out of a righteous consciousness or something it makes you—well—righteous or something…

    Yeah–I really suck at this—
    =)

  4. Rob,
    Challenge Jack Handey to single combat for the right to his thoughts. That’s how I’d handle it.

    You did the right thing.
