Dr. Matt makes me laugh out loud! His books are great and his tweets and Facebook posts make ROTFL. (I sound cool using that huh?). Just Stop Having Problems, Stupid! The Anti-Self-Help Guide and When It Comes To Relationships, You’ve Been An Idiot. Dr. Matt is the most famous fake doctor of our time, possibly due in part to the fact that, to my knowledge, no other person has aspired to gain that title.
Dr. Matt quotes from last week that made me laugh:
Always look on the bright side of life. Whatever you do, for Pete’s sake, DON’T LOOK AT THE OTHER SIDE.
We tend to have short memories when it comes to our success. Begin to collect evidence. If necessary, fabricate some.
(Angela here) Now that I’ve stopped laughing over those Dr. Matt quotes, I can tell you my laugh out loud pick is the writing of Paul Reiser … Couplehood and Babyhood are both books that made me chuckle.
(Peg here) I’m just now reading Tina Fey’s Bossypants. She is freakin’ brilliant. I bought the special edition for iPad with embedded audio, and it makes me laugh even harder hearing it read in her own voice, hearing where she pauses and where she reads more quickly. But her comedy doesn’t rely on timing. It relies on parallels to our own lives. If I was thinner, shorter, and Greek, I really think I would be a lot like Tina Fey. Or not.
