Still Not Funny 

I am still not funny. I am not exactly sure what happened.

A sometime reader of this sometime blog has said repeatedly that I should make some kind of effort into going into stand-up comedy. Since I am not really into making efforts, this never materialized. This week however, I steeled myself up and did a stand-up routine at a local club. It was edgy stuff. However there was very little applause and laughter and too many shouts of "put your pants back on" and "get the hell out of my funeral home".

I hired a private investigator. He was cheap, but he didn't get the job done. Really, he just kidnapped my dog. That's funny, of course, but not really "ha ha" funny. Even throwing a pie at his face failed to put much levity into the sight of his dismembered body. As a side note, there's a world of things a truck load of migrant workers can do with a box of machettes.

It seems hopeless. If you see my sense of humor, please mail it to me post-haste. In the mean time, I have had the good fortune to procure the name of dealer of "X-RAY specs". I feel as though x-ray vision may be some compensation for being less funny.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
