This is thread for to post and discuss humorous moments or anecdotes from TV, movies, books, or even real life.
I want to start off with a tweet from a political reporter, about his exchange with a politician. Before I post the tweet, I want to say that while I feel like I’m having trouble finding comedies that really make me laugh, some of the things I’ve seen in politics prove that I haven’t completely lost my sense of humor. Indeed, a part of me wonders if I’m losing interest in fiction because reality is far more entertaining. With that, here’s the tweet:
Cornyn: “I’m not going to tell you all of our secret plans”@mkraju: "Is it because you’re making it up as you go?"
Cornyn: “Well, there’s that. There’s also some other ideas"

By the way, this is an exchange that could possibly appear in a sitcom or movie, but I don’t think it would be as funny. It’s funny precisely because this is happening in real life. I should say that there is some element that’s not funny, as incompetence and dysfunction in Washington can have some very dire consequences. However, laughing out of loud was my first reaction upon reading the tweet.
