I was recently challenged to find 5 YouTube videos that make me laugh.  (Not just once.  But over and over.)

Now, don’t be asking why.

That only muddies my point, which is that it’s hard to find 5 reliably funny videos so that you can create a “funny library” that makes you laugh.

(A lot of stuff is only funny once.  Know what I mean?)

So, as a writer, I find myself wondering if there’s a “funny library” for creativity.  Could I create a go-to resource for genius, insight, and inspiration?

(Instantly, I realize want one, baaaaad.)

Anywho, here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
