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!

If It’s Friday, I Must Be Fevered!

All right, folks — it’s time for this week’s Punchline Fever. If you know the score, then skip on down to this week’s setup. If you’re new to the game, then peep this, bro (or sis; we’re all about the sis’s around here, too):

The rules of Punchline Fever are as follows:

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 it, folks. Now get out there and make me proud!

Punchline Fever #3:

The ‘airline with an all-nude staff’ seemed like a good idea at the time. But they had to close down when the passengers started ___________________

Oh, this one’s gonna be fun, folks — hop in there with your best punchline, and feel the fever! And don’t forget to check out the main Fever page for a glimpse at all the hilarity. Happy Friday, everybody!

(Quick note: on the main PF index page, the comments for this week’s edition may be a little wonky, b/c the page is hand-edited, not blogged, and I’m still figuring out how to make that page display comments made here.

So feel free to use the main index for your weeks 1 and 2 Punchline Fevers, but until I grow a brain big enough to figure this out, you may want to keep week 3 comments right here. Now start punching!)
