Today’s video had me laughing out loud. It was far too close to what can really happen in an interview with an author. Enjoy Bob Newhart at his best during this six-minute comedy sketch.
At a writers conference years ago, I met someone who claimed they had a worm in their backyard that whispered great truths. Plus this person claimed to be able to control the weather. You never know what an author might spring on you!

Bob Newhart’s deadpan reactions to this author’s tall tales is hilarious!

Now that was a Fun Friday laugh! Thanks for sharing it. Lots of strange stories in this world–and lots of people who have trouble telling their left from their right.
“At the risk of sounding . . . realistic . . .” Ha! Love Bob Newhart’s reactions.
Thanks for sharing, wonderful way to start the weekend! My husband loved it also.
Hahaha! I almost spit out my coffee when he said he saw dinosaurs in the Amazon!

Yes, like you, I laughed aloud and just when I thought it could not get any worse, the Col. dropped another bomb. I’m still laughing as I type this.
Guess I will have to go back and redo some of my stories before I send them in to an agent

Thanks for the gift of laughter, Steve! I’m still smiling. My family discovered Bob Newhart’s clip of “Stop It!” awhile back, and sometimes we can’t resist saying those words to each other, mimicking him. Makes us laugh all over again. He’s one of the best!
I hope this link works:
