Pratfalls:

I believe that pratfalls, a mainstay of physical comedy, are mostly discovered, not invented. This morning, for example, I picked up my audio player and started to walk away with it. As I did so a thought flashed through my mind: Wasn't my player plugged in to the a/c outlet? Even as I digested this thought I felt a mighty resistance from the player's refusal to take another step in my direction...

Let's just say that you don't have to play catch with round balls, and I'm glad my player still works. Oh, and juggling was probably discovered, not invented..
