Another teevee ad for a prescription drug where the generic could be split in two and it’d be a perfect name for an NPR reporter. “Dupi Lumab, All Things Considered.” My anxiety and panic are...

A rock opera version of Oklahoma called CROP ROCK. Q-Anon sticker on some bigot’s car, this is the American curse, to believe any impossible clearly-made-up thing under the sun as long as it ...

I wonder if between the end of spring term and the beginning of fall term, Hogwarts students could participate in some kind of Summoner’s Reading Programme. A bludgeoning weapon that’s +2 aga...

You could easily make “Black Betty” into a song about benzo pills. “Whoa Black Betty, diazepam, Whoa Black Betty, alprazolam”. The Scandinavian tourist board should go with the slogan “Have y...

During any meeting with entertainment executives, you should get to throw out your weirdest idea at the beginning with no negative repercussions as a “ceremonial first pitch”. Little concentr...

I just hope that the Scarlet Witch show has a scene that’s a black-and-white war romance of her and the Vision called FROM HERE TO INFINITY. When it is this hot, we should automatically shut ...

Why call it your “semen sample” when you can call it your “dude ranch”? Sleep, death, love, success, failure, little by little then all at once, they all arrive and leave the same way. Little...

Just realized U.S. Acres was collectively the Jar-Jar Binks of Garfield & Friends. I can just see Jim Davis being like “We have to get U.S. Acres going because they’re the funniest characte...

Strap some wheels on the bottom of your Ouija, call it a Fateboard. I love the retail-nerd term “Labelscar”. The haunting residue of the dirt surrounding where a corporate logo once was. Hist...

She made a RASPBERRY BRULEE, a good reason to use your kitchen torch more, RASPBERRY BRULEE Sometimes I like to think we’re all the same consciousness, imagining that we’re different just bec...

You can’t spell “atheist” without “a heist”. I’m not implying any meaning to this coincidence, just noting it and moving on. Yeah, I’d write a murder mystery set at the Olympics just to get t...

I’ve realized I’m a lot better at being accountable to others than accountable to myself. Outside structures like jobs & hobbies (that happen minimally during a plague) tend to be what I le...

Imagine a vast labyrinth, walls stretched to all horizons yet unitary. Imagine one brick unmoored to wander itself for so long it gets turned around & forgets itself a part of the whirl it ...

There are far worse names for a punk band than “Queefer Sutherland”. The important thing to point out about those “oh my God, this thing is actually a cake!” videos is that the icing is alway...

A quantum leap forward in Greek desserts - Scott Baklava! Why did Chuck E Cheese have to implode AFTER they got rid of the animatronics? I could’ve filled this attic with decommissioned anima...

Lady A and Cardi B collabing on a cover of “Beyond The Sea” with a guest rap verse from Chuck D, though Easy E is no longer with us to round out the premise. YOUR OWN. PERSONAL. PIZZA. READ A...

“Who’s voicing Garfield in this?” he asked. “It’s Music to my ears!” she responded. Music ideas: a country metal band called MULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, an emo rock opera about “The Facts of Lif...

What was with that super-brief fad of Dalgona coffee? Who prefers their coffee in viscous-slime form? Artisanal single-source organic basketball shoes called Tweeboks. So it appears that no...

It’s interesting to post on facebook, realizing it began as a way to see if folks you knew in high school were still good looking & ended up assisting the Russian dictator in installing a d...

I mean, a parody of the theme to Hey Dude about Dune. Sure. Maybe she jumps real high. MAYBE IT’S TRAMPOLINE. So in a D&D setting, the Ghostbusters… Venkman’s definitely a Glamour Bard,...

The ultimate ramifications of the cattle getting into the marijuana patch were uncertain but they knew this much: the steaks were high. “Do Diverse Androids Dream of Eclectic Sheep?” A poet...

I saw a banner for a gender reveal party that literally said “HERE FOR THE SEX” and I thought, yeah, yeah, maybe it’s good this civilization is ending. They’ll sacrifice school children to ke...

If Rogue had been from Athens instead of the American South, she could’a been Absorba The Greek but, again, no one asked me and we suffer for it. It’s not a coincidence Trump rushed a bunch o...

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
