If you are engaged to marry someone for their money, is she or he your financee? Is Batman’s costume Waynescoating? Regrets, once seered roughshod in my flesh like scars, now thrown into th...

When the natural gas explosion killed twenty, Hank Hill was found guilty on charges of “accessory to propane”. “I’m not into dry-humping or anything like it,” she said, “frottage is mostly ju...

It’s a history of Scandinavian languages called “From start to Finnish”. If only instead of “Last Blood” they had called it “Rambo Number Five” I could’ve written you an Oscar Best Song winne...

Selfishness, survival of the fittest, the sociopathy of individual focus may have gotten us out of the trees and caves but after that point, everything else was empathy, cooperation, collective...

Maybe the REAL Cotton Eyed Joe was the friends we made along the way. If I was the receptionist to a palm reader, I would always answer the phone “I know who you are.” I like that the guy f...

“So why are we going to start World War 3?” “We gotta defend Saudi Arabia from Iran, bro! 9/11, bro!” “Wait, who were all the funders and most of the suicide bombers in 9/11, again?” “Saudi Ara...

Why call it “loss of virginity” when you could call it “initial pubic offering” instead? The fear they’d see your love as a millstone about their neck, you know, yourself as a heavy load, dra...

If I was a narcotics cop, I would train “undercover” drug sniffing dogs that aren’t, like, henched-out German Shepards but, like, nervous little poodles that no one suspected of being a narc. C...

In my head-canon, the redhead from the B-52s is the daughter of Miss Yvonne from Pee Wee’s Playhouse. I hate when folk dunk on thinking Fahrenheit 451 was about censorship when “Bradbury said...

An elderly GNR cover band called DNR. Mantras are really just trance formers. The Bills being better than the Giants or the Jets is like being the smartest guy at a Trump rally. Technically...

What’s easy is probably fake, momentary at best. For better or for worse, luck probably gets you there but after that, you gotta figure out how to stay. And every day older is a day less luck i...

Hacks wanna make it look easy. The true masters aren’t afraid to let it look as hard as it actually is. Is there like a theremin vocoder combination? A theracodoer? Take your memories back,...

Have regrets. Have tons of them. A person without regrets is either unselfexamined or boring. Or they’re just pretending to seem tough. I have more regrets than stars I can see in the night sky...

Sometimes I’ll see couples holding hands in a weird intense way before a meal in a restaurant and assume I’ve stumbled onto a proposal but it turns out they’re just praying thanks or grace or w...

No, radio stations, holding onto the terrible wacky morning shows pumped in by satellite but ditching live local DJs is the OPPOSITE of saving your business model, even if it is cheaper in the ...

Your mind is not your brain but it is in there somewhere. You are not your body but you are in there somewhere. Debates like diabetes, I would rather starve myself, I would rather take unplea...

Late summer nights like these, hot by day, cooler but still humid in the evenings, where the loneliness of singledom really kicks in. The crickets or frogs or whatever sing, wish I could share ...

Book Description

originally, I went to college to be a comedy writer
