"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

Ten Dollar Saturday

Explanation of Five Dollar Friday here. Follow who else is giving on twitter.

This week $10 goes to Marcy Wheeler for her years of relentless reading, as well as this joke. In order to encourage myself not to get behind with $5 Friday, I'm going to double the amount for every day I'm ever late. So if I'm 30 days late, I'll have to give someone $2.5 billion. Cross your fingers, Pomplamoose!

Firedoglake only has $28,000 to go on their $150,000 fundraiser for Marcy W., so if you want to donate to this extremely worthy cause go here.

Confidential to The Ribeye and Bricklayers Union Representative from the year of our lord 1812: I am the highest ranking official so trumping me would be impossible. I will set aside the scrolls if you need them, but might I suggest a quick game of Bezique to calm your peasant nerves.
