Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

Callin’ In a… Fever

Holy hell, is it Friday again already? Where do the workdays go? Could I possibly have slept through another five?

Well, it hardly seems possible, and yet Senor Calendar tells us that it’s time to kick off another weekend, so here we go with the latest Punchline Fever. Strap on your thinking thongs, folks, and let’s get to it. But first, a quick review of the rules:

1) I’ll sit around, day and night, thinking of a short but flexible setup for a joke.

B) I’ll post the best setup I can think of, but with a blank where the punchline should go.

iii) Then it’s up to you to come up with your best line, and leave it in the comments, for all to snicker over.

That’s how she’s done, people. Now let’s have at it.


Punchline Fever #16:

‘Baseball’s Montreal Expos are looking for a new home city in which to play, and one of the strongest candidates is Las Vegas. Now, at first glance, ‘America’s Pastime’ and ‘Sin City’ don’t seem like a natural fit. But I think it’s a chance for some creative marketing — just think how much more exciting a trip to the ball game would be if ___________________________________’


That’s all there is to it. Now fire up those funny bones and hop to it — that blank’s not gonna fill itself. And once you’re done with that one, there are plenty more in the Punchline Fever archives. So get crackin’, and crack us all up. I’m taking a few hours off. Peace.
