"omg I'm bored out of my mind"

"ugh I'm soooo bored"

"bored bored bored bored bored *looks for something to do* bored again in 5 minutes"

Hi friends, I'm sure we have all at one point or another been subject to this dreadful state of boredom.

Where, or rather, how does it start? And the more important question, when does it end?

We have invited two guests who are experts in this field to give us some insight on their studies. Please, welcome dummy1 and dummy2.

*Applause light comes on*


Ok dummy1, so I understand you have been under the influence of boredom since you were 6?

dummy1 - That is correct.

And you have been studying the effects of boredom for quite some time now. So what insights can you give us on that topic?

dummy1 - well you see, boredom is quite like a boogeyman. Now that might sound strange to some of you but let me clarify. It is a sensation that most would define as unpleasant, but it is also mostly in your imagination. Its not REAL. Most of the time, when people say they are bored, they are actually saying "I'm too lazy to do anything productive right now, and there's nothing for me to sit here on my ass to do and keep me interested."

Hmm, well that is a very humorous comparison, what do you have to say about this, dummy2?

dummy2 - Actually, excalion, I find that absolutely ridiculous.

Oh? And why is that?

*dummy1 eyes dummy2 with a hurt expression on his face*

dummy2 - There have been plenty of times when I have already finished all the productive things that I could do,and I was still bored! Hell, I've been bored when I was DOING the productive things, like thinking why people are bored all the time. Ha! Me being bored while thinking about why people are bored, why dont you just make a stamp saying "Irony" and stamp me on the face!

What do you have to say about this dummy1?

(((((ok I'm getting bored of this)))))

*dummy1 takes out a bat and mercilessly beats dummy2 to death*

dummy1 - Well, now the blaspheming idiot is dead, we can continue this discussion...

*dummy2 turns into a zombie and grabs dummy1, then continues to chomp down on dummy1's brains*

Ahem...well its time for commercial, we'll be back after these messages!

Hi, I'm John Brians. Do you have back pains? What about sore joints? Well I'm here to tell you, you are not alone. In fact, you are one of 10 billion other Americans who share the same problem. But no need to worry, your days of pain are over! Doctors and professionals have made recent medical advances and created a new product to not only ease pain, but it also gets rid of boredom. Since even more recent research has shown that a person afflicted with severe boredom might turn into a zombie after they die, it is recommended that you buy this product. It will be much better than coming back after you die and having your children brutally take you down with a 12 gauge shotgun. =)

So if you are interested in this product, please call 1-800-help now, again, 1-800-help now.

*We return to a scene where only excalion is left, there seems to be a substantial amount of blood on the stage. However, it seems no one is giving it much notice.*

Hi, welcome back to the show, well now our respectable guests have finished devouring each other...uhh..I mean, given us valuable insight, what do you in the audience have to say?

*Camera pans to audience*

As a rule of thumb... Don't create threads out of boredom.
