"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

Bob Harris Now Pronounces You Man And Wife

I've said before and I'll say it again: Bob Harris has the most peculiar life of anyone I've ever met. I really have no higher compliment than this.

What unusual escapade has he been involved in most recently? Let's consult the New York Times Wedding section:

Dara Hellman, an adjunct instructor of English, and Daniel Frederick Melia, an associate professor of Celtic studies and rhetoric and a former "Jeopardy!" contestant, were married on Wednesday on the set of the game show at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, Calif. The ceremony was led by Bob Harris, a friend and former "Jeopardy!" contestant, who was named a deputy commissioner of civil marriage by Los Angeles County.

I'm not going to pretend I'm not jealous about this.

Wasn't uh, Bill Murray's character in "Lost In Translation" named Bob Harris?

I don't think it's that hard to get certified to perform marriages. Mine was performed by a friend who ordered info from the back of Rolling Stone!
