The Joker Doing Elmo Doing Smeagol, Obviously

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been one of those people who just leaps out of bed ready to start the brand new day. Would that I were! That seems like a really nice way to live. A little corny, maybe, but corny is nice. Corny is hopeful. Corny is honest. Corny is not sleep, though, and sleep is the dream. Even when I’ve got something going on that I’m genuinely very excited about and can’t wait to get back to work on, it’s still kind of a toss-up between doing that and hitting the snooze button for the ninth time and snoozing forever. They say you should follow your dreams and that is just what I would like to do most of the time, follow them straight to hell. Then there are mornings where you wake up and the first thing you see is someone in full Dark Knight Joker make-up doing Lord of the Rings character impersonations via Elmo ventriloquism and you wonder if perhaps you have succeeded. WHERE ARE WE? ARE WE STILL DREAMING? ARE WE DEAD? AT THE VERY LEAST CAN WE SLEEP/DIE FOR JUST A FEW MORE MINUTES AND/OR ETERNITY? I’M NOT SURE IF I CAN FACE ALL OF THIS. (Via TheDailyWhat.)
