My love for Zach Galifianakis stems from about 3 things:
1. His facial hair. First and foremost, it is unrivaled in it's ribald awesomeness. One day I will write a post about my obsession with red heads (they are like magical unicorns to me), and then the next I will write about my obsession with facial hair, and then you will understand why ZG is the holy grail of facial hair.
2. He does very straight faced humor, which I love. He has a flair for the absurd.
3. His ability for unmitigated rage. Rage is probably one of the funniest emotions, imho. As someone who has been accused of being pessimistic, I'd say I'm only bitter because it makes me laugh. I had a coworker who taught me to be angry properly and it involves lots of hyperbolic threats, like ripping someone's intestinal track out through their mouth, Mortal Kombat "finish them" style. My little brother even has a penchant for absurd anger, known to threaten to "break your house up" if you cross him. If you're going to get angry, at least let someone laugh at your expense on the way there.
