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!

You Say ‘To-may-to’; I Say… ‘Fever’!

Good morning, kids. Wakey, wakey — it’s Monday morning, and time to get out of that cozy little bed and back into the rat race. Mush, now! Mush!

But never fear, folks — there is a bright side. Or at least a silver lining. Or a fleeting distration. Whatever. Look, the point is that it’s also time for our next installment of: Punchline Fever! So let’s get cracking. First, 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.

Easy enough. You ready? Deep breath, then… and here we go:

Punchline Fever #23:

Steve was thrilled to find that he’d won a free vacation. But that was before he found out the contest was sponsored by Playtex, whose idea of a ‘vacation’ was ________________________

And… scene. There you go, kids — have fun. And don’t burn up those noggins trying to outthink each other. We’re all comedians here, and there are plenty of corny punchlines to go around.

(But if you’re really into it, check out the main Punchline Fever! page for more blank-induced craziness. Knock yourself out; it’s all good.)

Happy Monday, everybody!

P.S. For those of you interested in such things, the latest comedy clip from last night is now available over on the left sidebar. Or right here, if you’re too lazy to go looking.

(Hey, I’m nothing if not an enabler, people. I’m here to help your downward spiral into madness any way I can. That’s my job.)

So, go check it out, if that makes you happy. It’s a full nine — yes, nine! — minutes of pure comedy feldspar. Maybe even tin, or copper. Go see, go see!
