An NES video game based on the early ’60s sitcom “I’m Dickens, He’s Fenster” called “FENSTER’S QUEST”. (Bonus points, it would also be based on a John Astin starring television show!) Spider-...

You know what’s interesting? Truncating fast food slogans. Burger King: HAVE IT. Subway: EAT. McDonalds: FOOD. Taco Bell: YO. Accountants are offended when you call them your “tally ho”. Even...

The only difference between Trump and Musk is the generation. In the 80s, the dullard fail-son of a rich guy craving attention would get into real estate scams. In the 2010s, the same guy gets ...

We’re thinking about this whole “Morbius 2: It’s Morbin Time” thing all wrong. What if it’s a movie about a fictionalized version of the making of Morbius, where Jared Leto is actually a vampir...

DICK TRACY IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MANLIS. Live-tweeting The Tonys seems like a particular kind of hell even I wouldn’t subject myself to… and I’m the guy who should be paid 400 grand a year to ...

A head-canon where the meme character “Jeff The Killer” turns out to have been Geoffrey The Giraffe from Toys ‘R’ Us all along and that’s why they had to close the chain, to shield them from fu...

They could’a called DUDE WHERE’S MY CAR or PINEAPPLE EXPRESS or HAROLD AND KUMAR or any of those flicks “BROMANCING THE STONED” but, again, they haven’t put me in charge of naming everything ye...

With decades of age, I’ve come to realize that organized fandom is the problem, not being a fan of a thing. It’s like religion. Disorganized faith helps some get through life but once there’s a...

Are there really people feeling nostalgic for Top Gun? Top Gun. Really. It’s one thing to watch it & say “that was dumb fun, I don’t feel I wasted my time”, sure. But “this is a cultural to...

To redeem Dr. Octopus, Spidey should’ve just used otto-correct. A gig’s a spear they use to ensnare helpless fish to eat them & that’s why it’s called the “gig economy”. A brand’s a thing...

Don’t mind me. Just singing Van Halen’s “Panama” as “Enema” at the top of my lungs. As one does. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only lightcycle, that whoever believes in ...

You know you’re getting old when you’re starting to notice the baseball players’ moms more than their girlfriends. Sometimes, we’re not even lucky enough for the past to repeat itself. Someti...

I wonder if when people get mad at Stevie Nicks, they just yell “STEPHANIE NICHOLAS!” at her, like as if that’s her full legal, and it shames her into behaving. Everybody’s like carbon-neutra...

Whenever more than three women come together to smoke weed, that’s officially an easy-bake coven. Carls Sr was good friends with James Jonathon. Making a good stew is a thyme-consuming proc...

If instead of 15 minutes of fame, everyone got three months of hip-hop stardom, we could have a show called “90-Day Beyonce”. I just came up with the most revolting phrase in the English lang...

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
