Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. the surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.
While I ate my lunch today, I listened to Stephen Colbert’s Talks at Google interview. It was all really good, but his answer to the last question asked culminated in a story so hilarious I had to stop eating for fear of choking to death. If you have the time, give the whole interview a listen. If you don’t, here’s his answer to a question about why he chose comedy.
WARNING: Do not eat or drink during this video.
Epilogue: I just went in to use the bathroom at work and the story popped into my head. It started me uncontrollably laugh-crying all over again. I may be asked to leave the premises very soon.
Here’s a quick Friday funny!
