Random is when something happens out of the blue, with no real reason or purpose. It, in my opinion, is WAY funnier than stuff that makes sense. Lets compare Frasier to Monty Python's Flying Circus, shall we? Frasier obviously represents organized comedy, and M.P.F.C. obviously stands for Random Comedy. If you didnt know that already, you are retarded. I'll show you what I mean:
|||FRASIER|||
Roz: "Ever heard of Lupe Velez?"
Frasier: "Who?"
Roz: "Lupe Velez, the movie star in the '30s. Well, her career hit the skids, so she decided she'd make one final stab at immortality. She figured if she couldn't be remembered for her movies, she'd be remembered for the way she died. And all Lupe wanted was to be remembered. So, she plans this lavish suicide - flowers, candles, silk sheets, white satin gown, full hair and makeup, the works. She takes the overdose of pills, lays on the bed, and imagines how beautiful she's going to look on the front page of tomorrow's newspaper. Unfortunately, the pills don't sit well with the enchilada combo plate she sadly chose as her last meal. She stumbles to the bathroom, trips and goes head-first into the toilet, and that's how they found her."
Frasier: "Is there a reason you're telling me this story?"
Roz: "Yes. Even though things may not happen like we planned, they can work out anyway."
Frasier: "Remind me again how it worked for Lupe, last seen with her head in the toilet."
Roz: "All she wanted was to be remembered. Will you ever forget that story?"

|||Monty Python's Flying Circus|||
Mrs. Podgorny: Oh, a blancmange gave you an order for 48,000,000 kilts?
Angus: Aye!
Mrs. Podgorny: And you believed it?
Angus: Aye, I did.
Mrs. Podgorny: Och, you're a stupid man, Angus Podgorny.
Angus: (getting a little angry) Oh look woman, how many kilts did we sell last year? Nine and a half, that's all. So when I get an order for 48,000,000, I believe it - you bet I believe it.
Mrs. Podgorny: Even if it's from a blancmange?
Angus: Och, woman, if a blancmange is prepared to come 2,200,000 light years to purchase a kilt, they must be fairly keen on kilts. So cease yer prattling woman and get sewing. This could be the biggest breakthrough in kilts since the Provost of Edinburgh sat on a spike. Mary, we'll be rich! We'll be rich!
Mrs. Podgorny (Mary): Oh, but Angus... he hasna given you an earnest of his good faith!
Angus: Ah mebbe not but he has gi' me this... (brings out piece of folded paper from sporran)
Mary: What is it now?
Angus: An entry form for the British Open Tennis Championships at Wimbledon Toon... signed and seconded.
Mary: Och, but Angus, ye ken full well that Scots folk dinna know how to play the tennis to save their lives.
Angus: Aye, but I must go though dear, I dinna want to seem ungrateful.
Mary: Ach! Angus, I wilna let you make a fool o'yoursel'.
Angus: But I must.
Mary: Och, no you'll not...
Angus: Oh, Mary... (suddenly we hear a strange creaking and a slurping noise; a look of horror comes into his eyes) Oh, oh, Mary! Look out! Look out!
(Big close-up of Mary's eyes starting out from head.)
Mary: Urrgh. It's the blancmange. (Blur focus. Cut to a desk for police spokesman. A peaked-capped policeman sits there, reading 'The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire' by Googie Withers. He lowers book and talks chattily to camera.)
Policeman: Oh, now this is where Mr Podgorny could have saved his wife's life. If he'd gone to the police and told them that he'd been approached by unearthly beings from the Galaxy of Andromeda, we'd have sent a man round to investigate. As it was he did a deal with a blancmange, and the blancmange ate his wife. So if you're going out, or going on holiday, or anything strange happens involving other galaxies, just nip round to your local police station, and tell the sergeant on duty - or his wife - of your suspicions. And the same goes for dogs. So I'm sorry to have interrupted your exciting science fiction story ... but, then, crime's our business you know. So carry on viewing, and my thanks to the BBC for allowing me to have this little chat with you. Goodnight. God bless, look after yourselves.

Which do YOU think is funnier. More importantly, How The HELL did you manage to read all that without getting bored?

Random is highly over used but when used in the correct context it should be something completely out of the blue and hilarious for example:
Jayne: So are you in Roch tomorrow?
Vicky: Yea are you?
Jayne: definatley... *sings* Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring ring BANANA FONE!!!!
Vicky: *giggles* ... random!
Both: *SING* RING RING RING RING RING RING RING RING BANANA FONE!!!!!

It's a filler word which can be used to emphasize any phrase.
That's really random!
by Henz December 13, 2004
non essential, confusing and often misleading word, used in reponse to any sentence which may envoke slight shock or simply a confused state.
most commonly used in situations which in fact, are quite common, and generally quite essential.
NOT RANDOM:
person a: have u got any nieces?
person b: yeh, my sister had a baby yesterday
person a: WOW RANDOM!

RANDOM:
person a:have u got any nieces?
person b: There was this big yellow bear and he had a tribe ov owls and the owls had green hair and blue wings and very many eyes and one day the dog went to the beach and found The Land of Faraway and decided to go home, and then the Russian Pygmie Army bearing cocktail sticks by the thousands ran at Craig, but craig, having wings flew away, but in his panic, as he was terrified ov the Russian Pygmies bearing cocktail sticks by the thousands (some even had the little umbrella ones.....) he flew straight into the Empire State building, and in a severe state of shock and confusion (as he lives in Clevedon and didn't know where the Empire State building came from) he got a marmite sandwiche out from his bag and ate it. But out of no where a parcel arrived for Egbert, which was a very parculiar thing as no one but me knows anything about Egbert (as he lives in my shoe) and i didn't send him a parcel. To pollys surprise the clouds had turned orange and ofcorse this means it was raining apple juice (durgh). I was walking down the road the other day and suddenly this cookie fell from the sky right in front ov me, 'no waaaaaay' said the man, 'itz raining fucking doughnuts', so he picked up his cat and carried on his journey to Jupiter.
person a: WOW RANDOM!!!!!!!
