If you haven't visited the website for the late, great Mitch Hedberg recently, then today would be a perfect day to do so.
Recently relaunched by his widow, comedian Lynn Shawcroft, the Mitch Hedberg site boasts a wealth of information — not just old stuff, but also previously unreleased video clips, jokes and views of handwritten pages from his personal joke notebooks.
Here's one such joke:
How to get to space. Build a ladder, don‚Äôt stop until you can jump off and not fall down. -MH
Coincidentally, Sirius XM satellite radio is celebrating Hedberg this weekend.
