I should send this one into Leno.

I received a flyer from BrandsMart today (if you don't know who they are, they're an outfit that sells electronic items and appliances at way discounted prices) announcing a "HUGE PRIVATE SALE". Now, one would suppose that this would involve a by-invitation-only, exclusive guest list, Studio 54 type of experience, right?

It was addressed to "Recipient".

Like getting a sweepstakes entry form saying "YOU have a chance to win a zillion dollars. Only a few people have been sent this invitation by special drawing...." addressed to "Recipient" and sent in BULK MAIL.

Ah, yes, preying on the elderly just like PCH and the AARP...

One time I got a special invitation addressed to Recipient. I took it to the store. They told me I wasn't allowed in. I'm tellin ya, I never get no respect.

I bought a dog. I thought the dog would help me meet women. Turns out the dog's using me to meet other dogs.

The other night, my wife rolls over in bed and tells me to take out the garbage. I tell her I already took out the garbage. She tells me to go out and keep an eye on it.

He was a classic, wasn't he?

In this part of the country they usually start with either Hi Hon or Hey Good Buddy.

Well, at least it isn't "Yo!". (Don't forget, I live in Oakland.)
