"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

Double Five Dollar Friday

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

$5 goes today to Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting, both generally for teaching me about rational media criticism and specifically for bringing Alex Perry into my life. Thank you, FAIR. They're holding a fundraiser right now, and I urge you to donate yourself.

$5 also goes to Douglas Lain for his kickstarter project on "on anti-capitalist permaculture"—essentially he's going to grow food and write about it. There's a video I can't figure out how to embed, but you can go here to see it:

FAIR is a powerful dissident press. Repetitive, yes, but we live in an age where elites are stuck on some old boogeymen.
