"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

This Website Is Working Better Than I Ever Expected

The original purpose of this website was simply to save me the hassle of emailing jokes to my friends every day. A subsidiary purpose was to allow me to keep these friends by not sending them these emails. This humble beginning is why, despite promises made before god and man, the site still looks like crap.

But as this site has aged and metastasized, it's had an unanticipated side benefit: it's brought me into contact with many like-minded oddballs, malcontents, freakazoids, nice-n-plentys, and so forth. I had no idea there were so many of them (us) out there.

One such visitor is the proprietor of the excellent Oily Mess log de web. He shares many of my peculiar fixations, such as the energy industry, the coming decline of the dollar, and mocking those with incorrect opinions.

On behalf of the "so forth" faction of your readership -- arguably the most likely to tickle grumpy security guards -- I want to thank you for starting this weblog.
