A POEM WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY OUR WEBMASTER LARRY BJURD. HE USES MODERN WEBSITES AND TECHNOLOGY SO WE DON’T HAVE TO. THANKS LARRY.
Who are the Friends of Marty?
I’ve come up with some fun would-you-rather scenarios. These are perfect as icebreakers, or just as fun questions to ask people who are already your friends over dinner or cocktails. Think of them as “thought experiments!” Isn’t that fun? Thought experiments? Terrific stuff!
Would you rather have the power of invisibility OR give your eternal soul to the devil?
Would you rather have one million dollars OR have two million dollars BUT you have to give one million of it to the devil?
Would you rather know when you’re going to die OR have the devil find out first and tell you?
Would you rather find true love once OR run into the devil on the street twice?
Would you rather be famous OR watch a movie like The Devil’s Advocate, which stars a famous person, with the devil on the couch next to you?
Would you rather eat your favorite food OR an apple the devil suggested?
Would you rather be the greatest musician in the world but you’re deaf OR the best basketball player in the world BUT the devil is still better than you?
Would you rather go to the past OR go to Hell?
Would you rather live in your favorite fictional universe OR read fanfics about it written by the devil?
Would you rather spend a year on vacation in your favorite place OR watch a three-minute slideshow of the devil’s vacation photos?
I appeared on the immensely popular TOWELS: the Podcast hosted by Terry Linehan. Terry and I talked towel preferences as well as our towel influences.
This is a really amazing poem called “Look Up.” It’s about technology and how it has the power to isolate us. It even rhymes!
It also happens to be sponsored by my favorite beverage company.
I’d like you all to meet Marty Higgins, the star of asthma-squad's and my live sketch comedy show The Marty Higgins Memorial Laff-A-Thon
