“There is nothing to fear” means a different thing with every differing syllable emphasis. If CDs were still a mainstream thing and the band Urge Overkill was still a thing, I’d get a bunch o...

The boa killed the first two fluteplayers and yet nevertheless, she was undeterred. She just smiled. “Third time’s the charmer.” I recently saw a self help book called The Courage To Be Rich ...

Once every four years, end of February, we should all just stop what we’re doing and binge watch Quantum Leap for a day. If you’re born rich, you shouldn’t get credit for making yourself more...

Collecting Garfield crap would be a good hobby because you could never stop. There was so much variety of Garfield crap churned out in the 80s that no one will never know how it all. Devoting y...

If only “Starf” was a word in English, I could make some really great Nintendo “Starf Ox” jokes. Maaaaaybe an Icelandic retro-gamer would enjoy a joke about the hard-working (starf means work i...

“Religion is the opiate of the masses” meant… it is a powerful short-term balm to pain, which it is. But you get dependent on it if you don’t repair the underlying damage, it consumes you while...

Truck dealerships are full of pick-up lines. Reduced Fat means More Sugar. No Sugar means Carcinogenic Sugar Substitutes. There are no quick fix solutions, only precariously balanced trade of...

If I ever met John Leguizamo, I am almost certain I would slip up and call him Log Jenuizamo. We must be kind to each other, much as we can, in the moments we’re in, and we can undo all this ...

The holiday season is so extended these days, it feels like they’re putting up Happy Hondadays decorations the day after Hondaween. Observation alters outcome. Subatomic particles in experime...

Bail reform ain’t about “criminals going free”. It’s about those accused of crimes not being punished extra for being poor. You all have some deep economic Stockholm Syndrome if you cant see th...

IKEA killed early 90s metal by using up all the umlauts. Paul Rudd ate Dick Clark’s heart and gained his power. A pastry in the form of Adam Driver called “Phyllo Ren”. Arranged marriage ...

I like to believe that King Vitaman cereal is no longer made because there was a bloody anti-royalist revolution and he was probably replaced by, oh, Comrade Crunch. When Bizarro Superman tri...

A country cover of “Hey Ya” called “Yee Haw” would be 100,000 more legitimate fusion of country and hip-hop than “Old Town Road”. “You are the walking embodiment of the avian flu virus!” she ...

The year 20-20, you will have two critical rolls to play. Your movie about a crazy road race through zombie country will be called CANNIBAL RUN. It’s like vampires say, red sky at night, im...

Sunday night into Monday morning, we will have anything from a dusting to a foot and a half of snow, depending how desperate for clicks the given news site is. Papa John looks like a melting...

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
