"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

Video Of Bruce F.'s Roof Food
Bruce F. has been writing here for some time about his experiences growing fruits and vegetables on the roof of his Chicago home.
Now Michael Gebert's new video podcast on Chicago food, "Sky Full of Bacon," has produced an episode on Bruce F. (The podcast also takes a look at Green Grocer, a new store for locally-grown food in Chicago's Noble Square neighborhood.)
I keenly hope that in the future Americans will spend much more of their media time on stuff like this, and much less having giant corporations spray crap all over them.
