In celebration of the annual Vermont's Funniest Comedian competition, which runs Wednesday through Friday, October 26 through 28, at the Vermont Comedy Club in Burlington, all this week we're posting a daily version of our weekly Joke of the Week feature. Today's dose of local hilarity comes to us from Montpelier's Kathleen Kanz. Take it away, Kathleen …
I think deja vu is bullshit, and it's not the first time I've thought that.
About that joke
Says Kanz: "I was driving south on I-91. I was on my way to an open mic in Easthampton, Mass., and was very annoyed about something I was going to have to discuss with my dad and sister. I whizzed by something and thought, Oh, I'm having deja vu
. And then my inner authority shouted, "Deja vu!" I pulled over and wrote it down."
