The Fun Lab Technicians are involved in a lifelong quest for information. We are studying
the science of comedy, together and separately, in an effort to dissolve its connection with
art, a difficult to quantify medium. Through our understanding of comedy, its causes and effects,
its roots and its ramifications; we hope to one day discover our version of what the ancient Jews
called a “Messianic era,” the possible existence of a comedic utopia, where comedic value is
fully appreciated, and scientists get lots of chicks. Through the dependable logic of numbers
and equations, we are confident that our dream will be realized.
We began our studies together at the
Parkinson’s Institute of
Comedy and Witty Retort in Tempe, Arizona. Once we received our baccalaureate honors
upon graduation, we resolved to go into business for ourselves, hoping to survive on grants from
commonly recognized pillars of the various comedic industries. Sadly, the Rubber Vomit Consortium of New Mexico
and the Three Stooges Society of Sight Gag
Technicians of Grand Rapids, Michigan were not as receptive to our idea as we expected.
But through a generous grant from a rich and eccentric financier known only as La Casa Bourassa, we were able to establish The Fun Lab,
our scientific exploratory,
laboratory, observatory and dormitory.
We rise at the crack of dawn, thanks to Sight Gag Technician Dag Bengsston’s patented
“Up and At ‘Em” Machine, and voraciously attack our high-in-protein-and-
breakfasts. Then, after proper scientific hygiene and liberal use
of soap and hot water in our Fun Lab shower,
we attack our scientific studies with no less voracity.
As our experiments grow in complexity and value, The Fun Lab experiences monumental growths in
its vast archive of intellectual material. The computer industry brags of a double of
technological innovation every six months. We are proud to announce an exponential jump
in our intellectual property that occurs every four months. When we were alerted that we
had the computer industry beat by two full months, The Fun Lab Technicians threw an
Industry Dance Party
in the Vann Bourassa Breaking-Wind Tunnel.
Reportedly seen in attendance were popular television’s
Mr. Wizard and successful comedian, Bob Saget.
Our resumes are as individually impressive as our collective body of work. We have garnered
fun technicians from around the country; graduates from the
former executives from ABC’s “TGIF,” and successful street magicians
from the various French Quarters of the globe. We invite you to inspect our accomplishments in order
to further bolster your understanding of the
monumental tasks we have undertaken.
We are renowned at The Fun
Lab to have an immense cache of comedic data. Now, in an ongoing effort to further
explore the value of quantifiable fun in the world, The Fun Lab Technicians have
declassified large sections of this information and extended an unprecedented offer to
scientific enthusiasts around the globe. Now you too can
take part in some of our intriguing experiments!
