Best Receipt...

Honoring Mitch Hedberg

...Ever. Says the guy with the Mitch Hedberg avatar.

The receipt above was given to customers
at a donut shop in Chicago. A quote from the Yahoo article:

An employee at a Chicago doughnut shop was recently "given the ability to control what gets printed on the receipts" and promptly did what any Mitch Hedberg fan would do: pay tribute to the late comedian's doughnut routine.

"This is the first thing I did," Jon Becker, a 27-year-old staffer at Stan's Donuts, wrote on Reddit, posting an image of a receipt's footer bearing the quote from Hedberg's standup set.

I miss Hedberg's delivery and style. Comic genius.

14 minutes of Mitch's material (if embedded video above is not working).

That receipt is dry-clean only, which means it's dirty...

I saw Mitch perform in Nashville the year before he died and I have never laughed so hard in my life.

Loved Mitch. He was my favorite active comedian up until his death.

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.  ~ Bruce Lee

Mitch Hedberg never had an expense account.

I can just imagine turning that receipt in to our accounting department.

The best part of the above is you can just hear him doing them.

Miss him all the time.

Stan's donuts? Is this the same one in Chicago that was featured in the movie 'Wayne's World?'

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

My boss brought in some doughnuts this a.m., had to come here and pay respects - Hedberg was indeed a comedic genius.
