This is funny right? Yeah, Pam said it was funny. So it must be funny.

Several months ago, Michael was trying to be my movie buddy again. He has yet to pick up on what my film interests are, so his attempt crashed and burned as usual.

“Have you seen the previews for that new Ben Stiller movie?” he asked.

” ‘Tropic Thunder?’ Yeah I did.”

“That movie looks so stupid!” he said emphatically.

“Oh. I think it looks hilarious.”

“Really?”

“Oh yeah. We can’t wait to see it.”

“Hmmm”

“But that’s my sense of humor. That stuff is right up my alley.”

Clearly I had ruined the rant Michael had practiced about how silly he thought the movie looked so I gracefully bowed out and let him fester at his desk.

*Cut to last week.*

“So have you seen that ‘Tropic Thunder’ movie yet?” he asked.

“Yeah we saw it this weekend.”

“Was it good?”

“Well I thought it was hysterical, but it’s my type of comedy,” I said.

“Yeah it looked like it was going to be really funny.”

Sure it did Michael.
