As my dad says, I am one sick puppy. I have a sense of humor that will make you cringe and question why we ever became friends. It’s dark, folks. Dark.
But sometimes we need a good belly laugh. One that makes tears stream down your face, leaves you unable to breathe, and works your abs more than any core workout. A laugh without explanation or judgement.
If you need a hump day pick-me-up (especially those of you in the rainy ‘Ham), step on into the crazy world of Tanya humor. But beware.
Dead animals—I won’t explain it. No, I can’t explain it. Dead animals make me laugh. Particularly cats. Now I’m not talking about your precious Fluffy dying and me laughing in your face, I mean things like this new “Get Well Soon” roadkill trend. Or this little girl and the dead squirrel. And if you really want to turn me into a useless pile of giggles, ask me to tell you about Morris the cat.
Helen Keller—Sweet Helen was an inspiration to us all and had more talent than I have in my little finger. But nothing, nothing is better than a Helen Keller joke. Why did she burn her ear, why is she in the closet, where is her dollhouse? The more inappropriate, the harder I laugh and secure my spot in hell.
Moon Moon—Have you met Moon Moon, basically the greatest meme ever to exist? It’s also the epitome of every husky to ever exist ever, as exemplified by my very own Sasha. As soon as I discovered Moon Moon, it was like a new world opened up. No, my dog isn’t deranged. She’s just…Moon Moon.
Blueberries—Every time. EVERY TIME. If you don’t laugh too, you’re dead inside.
Eurotrip—This movie never fails to leave me rolling laughing. Best scene? Fred Armisen on the train. Or the dog running around with the human hand, because, dead things. Or the greatest song ever, “Scotty Doesn’t Know.” Hell, the entire movie rocks.
These are just the very tip of the Tanya’s humor iceberg. All others are not fit for public consumption. If you made it this far, congrats on still being my friend! Now I’d love to hear what weird, crazy things make you double over with a case of the giggles.
