Comedians are just like you! We go to the grocery store, we do laundry, and we greet the day with a cup of coffee, the morning paper, and a goooood stretch!

As children, we often fantasize about what we're going to be when we grow up: astronauts, firemen, teachers, doctors...nothing seems off-limits. Take for instance, this little girl:
She wanted to be a veterinarian. Did that happen? No. Instead, she explains to her parents once a year that even though they don't understand it, drink tickets ARE a form of payment!
So when someone is able not only to achieve their career goals, but loves and thrives in what they're doing, I think that deserves to be rewarded.
So, for the first time ever, I'd like to present the "Oh My Goshko! I'm Doing What I Love" Award to Mr. Jungle Recon. Congratulations, Mr. Recon, for not only achieving your dreams, but for being able to say, "You ever shot a machine gun on peyote?"
We should all be so lucky.
