Flight wisdom

Last night I watched some of Flight of the Conchords, second season of the HBO series. I had seen advertising but had never watched the show before. I first watched some introductory stuff on ondemand, then took in an episode.

In general I don't find it all that funny. I think it's a kind of low-key humor, like the British The Office, that I don't exactly guffaw at. It's perhaps too close to true, not enough exaggeration? I am not sure.

But there was one little comment that stuck with me.

One of the pair - the Conchords is a duo from New Zealand (and I admit the jokes that keep confusing where they are from are pretty good) - mentioned in the intro piece that he is essentially a lazy person, and that "people like me oughtn't to be made to work so hard".

I like that. I relate to it, and I like that he took it away from himself, said that others should not make him work so hard.
