Ideas I grapple with

Everybody Lies . . . and has blogs

I, like millions of others, love the show House, M.D. in spite of its unrealistic medicine and prosaic formula (wait, 20 minutes in and we have a plausible but incorrect diagnosis?). The show has loads of wit, sarcasm, and Hugh Laurie’s piercing blue eyes. This redeems the poor medicine, but just how poor is the medicine? Thankfully there is a physician who reviews the shows and posts critiques on his blog, Polite Dissent. He is also into comic books, so he’s got that going too.


If you haven’t had enough of Hugh Laurie’s eyes; eyes which you could swim in all day then you should check out Keep Your Receipt. Interspersed between other humorous posts, an interesting hybrid exists: House screen shots with LOLCATZ captions. My personal favorite is from season 5, episode 3.

  1. How did you stumble upon Keep Your Receipt? The author’s a web-friend of mine (through Twitter/Facebook) and one of the damn funniest people I know.

    • Corrie, my wife, randomly found it through another blog, Cake Wrecks. Cake Wrecks won some humor blog award and she was curious what the runner-ups were and Keep Your Receipt was listed.

    If you have never seen H.L. in the old humour series “Geeves” by the BBC you really must try to do so, he is hilarious in a very British way.

    • Jeeves and Wooster

      I am a huge fan of the series Jeeves and Wooster. It is what started my appreciation for Hugh Laurie. When I first started watching House, I did not realize Hugh Laurie was the same Hugh Laurie from Jeeves and Wooster. Dumb, I know, but the American accent threw me.
