"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

Five Dollar Friday

Explanation of Five Dollar Friday here. Follow who else is giving on twitter. There will be a website and tumblr up by next week or someone here's getting fired.

Today's $5 Friday donation goes to Consumers Union, specifically for their song "The Drugs I Need" from several years ago. It was produced by Austin Lounge Lizards and a seemingly-defunct Austin company called the Animation Farm for part of CU's Prescription for Change campaign.

My understanding is that in an alternate universe I am married to the woman who does the voiceover at the end.
