The NSA’s New Slogans

2013-06-12

In light of the recent revelation of the vast collection of American’s phone data, the Obama Administration and the National Security Agency have been taking a public relations beating. In order to combat this, the Administration has turned to the advertising agency of Cooper/Sterling/Draper/Targaryen/Lannister to come up with slogans designed to soften the impact. The [...]

The Lost Prisoner Episodes

2013-05-30

Recently, I have been rewatching the 1960′s British cult classic, The Prisoner. The show, created by and starring Patrick McGoohan, is about a British secret agent who resigns for reasons we aren’t told. (at least at first…or possibly ever. Do we ever learn? That would be telling). He is then gassed in his flat by [...]

Atlas Revisited

2013-05-13

In order to atone for my past sins, I recently read Atlas Shrugged.  It took me months, and it was a miserable experience.  In short, Atlas Shrugged is  a tedious tale consisting of haranguing monologues on the virtues of being selfish interrupted by the thrilling exploits of railroad schedules, grapefruit delivery, steel production and utterly unerotic [...]

CNN’s New Slogans

2013-04-17

In the day following the tragic bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon, CNN announced that police had made an arrest.  They then had to report that this may not be the case.  In any event, the rush to be first with a breaking story does, at times, override the need to be accurate with that [...]

April Fools’

2013-04-01

As a comedian, I view April Fools’ Day much as I suspect a drunk views St. Patrick’s Day.  It’s a day when amateurs try to pretend to be pros.  Suffice to say, the calendar does not make you funny. In the interest of making today more tolerable, I am going to give you a list [...]

Ribbons and Icons

Look, being a cynical jerk is kind of my thing.  It drives a lot of my comedy, and makes me the lovable curmudgeon I am. But, I am actually getting a little tired of the overwhelming need for us all to be cynical twits all the time. This past week, the US Supreme Court heard [...]

Council Of Propriety Issues Comedy Laws

2013-03-19

Based on a decree from the Council Of Propriety, a completely fictional group I just now made up, there are a number of topics that are not funny, can never be funny, and must never be utilized in comedy.  The list of such topics is clearly too large to print, so the Council has issued [...]

Comedy Isn’t Always As Offensive As You Want It To Be

2013-02-26

People are up in arms over the Oscars. Not because of who won and who lost, but because of jokes.  Jokes about breasts. Jokes about a nine year old nominee.  Jokes. Seth MacFarlane has been accused of being sexist and even misogynistic primarily because of a song in which he noted times he’d seen actresses breasts [...]

Star Wars Returns!

The Fiscal Cliff

2012-12-31

Maybe today, Congress will reach a deal and prevent the nation from hurtling over the fiscal cliff that looms tomorrow. If we go over the cliff, very bad things will happen. My understanding is that if no deal is reached, tomorrow morning, armed soldiers will come into your home, take all your stuff and insult [...]
