"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

Le Funnie

Yes, this site grows less amusing every day, but Mike and Dennis are keeping hope alive.

Mike's started writing five weekend update jokes a day. For instance:

Forty-eight hours after love-struck astronaut Lisa Nowak was arrested for attempted murder, NASA pledged that it would revamp its psychological screening process. "For one thing," a NASA official said, "we'll take it more seriously when an astronaut gets a tattoo saying, 'Death from Above.'"


After discovering that many of their stadiums do not come up to code, Italian soccer officials have announced that several upcoming games will be played in front of no spectators. That's too bad...Still, it's nice to see after years of trying to convince us to play their type of football, they've given in and started to play our type of soccer.

And here's Dennis:

Democratic Senator Joe Biden is at it again. Less than a week after he described Barack Obama as "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," for which he had to apologize, Biden yesterday quipped to reporters, "You can put a chimp in a suit, but you can't expect him to say 'Foreign Relations Committee.'" When asked if he thought his comment was racist, Biden angrily replied, "How dare you ask a brother that!"

More Dennis here.

I've been meaning to buy a copy of your book for two months now, but every time I get near the computer with a credit card it subscribes to another porn site instead. But I got a new card with a picture of Jesus on it, so we should be cool now.

Having done that, if I buy the book directly from you, will you call up one of my friends and insult him?

Are you kidding? I'd do that for free! I'd DEFINITELY do it if you get the book.

if brother Biden was a moderate republican, FoxNews would be going ape singing his praises and he'd be climbing the polls, edging into Guiliani territory.
