I’m just sayin we could reboot Morganna the Kissing Bandit as Buffy the Umpire Slayer. I am “my first computer games were on a Commodore 64” years old. An Alice In Chains parody about the ...

Your D&D team’s traveling stagecoach was sold to you by bird-man named Lee Aarakocra. If dogs get kennel cough, do they also get pounding headaches? I am not judging, simply being healt...

“Oh, my old boomerang,” she said, going through her mementos from her semester in Australia, “that’s a real throwback.” My generation looks at the rubble wrought by disease, war and stolen el...

Why call the video game “Duck Hunt” when we could’a called it “Murder Most Fowl”? A Klingon character called Ra’fless so that someone can comment on his forehead “Ruffles has ridges!” As cl...

She’s the loose canon one slip-up away from getting kicked off the force. He’s the rookie just out of the academy who was magically conjured from a children’s book. Together they fight crime… a...

I love when fads completely come and go without me. It’s the best thing about being old. “Whipped coffee”? Nah, dog. I don’t need my java in Nickelodeon Gak form. Now it’s deader than the Charl...

A rap about Alfred E Neuman called “Baby Got Blech”. If every single sponsored ad on Youtube is “by a company I would sing the praises of even if they didn’t pay me” then… maaaaaaaybe a whole...

I hope that on the Enterprise they call their ship’s bathhouse “The Docking Bay”. That’d be clever. If Disney ever wants to counter Space Jam, here’s my pitch: Dunk Tales. The thing about c...

Your corporation’s leader of COVID compliance should be called a Chief Personal Protection Practice Officer so she or he can call her or himself the company’s “C-3P-O”. The maximal name for a...

If the couple are supervillains, is the honey-do list a honey-doom list? I kind of get it when a small news websites hit me with the “YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF PROTECTING YOUR COMPUTER FROM VI...

The woman in the stirrups looked down in stunned silence that her 14 hours of labour produced not a human baby but rather a piping hot pizza. “It wasn’t delivery,” the doctor sadly intoned, “it...

I saw a sign for a Chinese restaurant called Great Wall and I was transfixed with how awesome it would be if it just said “Eat Wall”. When I win the lotto, I shall bribe them to remove the G an...

There are worse noms-de-guerre than “Carlton Banksy” I suppose. Why not call wedding receptions “happily-ever afterparties”? This life’s disappointments almost uniformly flow from how so ma...

Yes, IN SECURITY would’ve been a much much much better title for PAUL BLART MALL COP than PAUL BLART MALL COP but the pun would’ve surely been wasted on such a terrible film that only existed f...

It’s a good thing Hoobastank disappeared like the stank of a Hooba grazing in the distance on a stiff breeze before we had the cross-promotion of Hoobastank Hubba Bubba gum, that phrase would’v...

“Abundance” he muttered. “Thanks,” she replied, “that means a lot.” I mean, we still don’t have a Christopher Lloyd endorsed liquor called “Great Scotch!” That’s disappointing. Remember the...

When I was young, if you’d mentioned “waterboarding”, you’d’a just thought it was an old person trying to remember the word for “surfing”. It’s good the horrors are no longer secret but it’s st...

I think fan-fiction crossovers COULD be fun, but it’s always something boring as hell, like… Stephen Universe meets Adventure Time or Sailor Moon meets Dragonballz. Now, Popeye meets The Tempes...

Go into the store. Swap the labels on the marshmallow Fluff and the mayo. Make the world a weirder place. Don’t worry about expanding your orchestra. There’s always room for cello. A film w...

Lazy fish-mongers are a leading cause of mackerel degeneration. The measure of intellect is not in being right. Any damned fool can be right, by aping someone else or by random chance. The me...

Book Description

originally, I went to college to be a comedy writer
the urge to still generate short form ideas remains
I collect, once or twice a day, my one-liner jokes
and my germs of ideas that I litter on social media
into little collections I call “barrages”
and then I put them here
