Mike Birbiglia Telling a Mitch Hedberg Joke
I wrote a letter to my dad. I wrote, “I really enjoyed being here,” but I accidentally wrote rarely instead of really. But I still wanted to use it, so I crossed it out and wrote, “I rarely drive steamboats, Dad. There’s a lot of shit you don’t know about me. Quit trying to act like I’m a steamboat operator.” This letter took a really harsh turn right away. (via Esquire)
