"Mike and Jon, Jon and Mike—I've known them both for years, and, clearly, one of them is very funny. As for the other: truly one of the great hangers-on of our time."—Steve Bodow, head writer, The Daily Show

"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

More Funny

Last spring Consumers Union released the song "The Drugs I Need" by the Austin Lounge Lizards, as part of their Prescription for Change campaign for drug safety. It was downloaded over 100,000 times, I suspect because it's extremely funny. If you haven't seen it already, you should.

Now Consumers Union has teamed up with the Austin Lounge Lizards again, with new songs for two more campaigns. The first is "The Tower," part of "Hear Us Now" opposing media consolidation. The second is "It's Always Christmas Time (for Visa)," part of a project on changing our hideous credit card laws. You should go to both sites, watch both songs, and sign both petitions.

Consumers Union: putting the "fun" back in "fundamental political reform."
