  •  People are always curious as where do humorists get their wacky ideas all the time. Once awhile you may hit upon a funny line or silly joke, but to churn out an endless stream of funny ideas is no joke(no pun intended).So, where and how do the professional comedy writers do it?

  •  Definition #1:- A pinion is the edible nut of a pine tree.- O pinion is a nutty perspective held by a person (unless it is your own opinion, of course).

The wheels turn rou...
  •  The two main phrases in comedy writing are: "what if" and "anything goes". They are catalysts for generating funny ideas."What if" challenges your imagination and "anything goes" takes you beyond your imagination. With the combination of these two key stimulants, you will ultimately create a funny idea.Now let`s take a look at the thinking process behind the creation of a funny idea. Employing the two important phrases "what if" and "anything goes", means letting your mind run wild and fre...
  •  There is no escaping it. He is.Now that may cause a downright sigh of relief to many men and women; that is, if you are a Dobson, Robertson, Falwell, type; you know, “Focus on the Family”, Family.org, “700 Club”, “moral majority”, et cetera. If by chance you are, consider this a confirmation of your beliefs and let’s part friends. God bless you. Good Bye.As for my devout catholic friends, the Rick Santorum folks, again the rest of this little opinion piece simply substantiate...
  •  While standing at the checkout line of just about any store, one can`t help but notice the vast array of "news publications" strategically placed for impulse shoppers. If anyone disagrees that the location of these fine works of journalism has nothing to do with spur of the moment shopping ... just look right below them and you`ll find the candy section, that for inexplicable reasons, is only 2-3 feet off the ground. Every week on my jaunt to the store, I look forward to this weeks excelle...
  •  The day started out fine. I slept well and woke at 4:30 to email a fellow author who’s ghostwriting a book on The Power of Positive Thinking. I’d promised a few examples of my own philosophy. You know, the kind of stuff that is infused with optimism and oozes rhapsodic enthusiasm?The email was more of a treatise on coping mechanisms, or “How to be happy when the world around you crumbles.” I recommend “taking pleasure in the little things” and cited some examples that have help...
  •  The British know when something is funny. That is why they edited old television shows and rebroadcast The George Goebel Show, The Bob Hope Show, The Sid Caesar Show and The Steve Allen Show. According to http://www.bbc.co.uk/comedy/guide/articles/g/georgegobelshowt_1299001248.shtml they broadcast one after another week after week.We find at the referenced web site and I quote:“George Gobel (born George Goebel in Chicago on 20 May 1920) was a child singing star on the radio who became a ...
  •  The Laughing Buddha, legends say,Was born in China, on an ancient day.His heart was big and his belly GRAND!He carried a bowl and a sack close to hand.Like a Zen Santa, I`d say he was,Except he was bald as a peach, with FUZZ.He`d look at each child with a magical twinkle,And pull from that sack, in the corner, by a wrinkle ...... JUST the right gift at JUST the right time,He`d do it without effort or reason or rhyme."Oh, thank you Santa," each child would say,Except in Chinese, in their in...
  •  One thing that I have noticed during our eighteen months in America is this everything is an uphill battle. Everything is hard to figure out, from completing your two hundred-page tax return; to understanding what Southerners are actually saying when they speak. Trying to figure out why so many All-American companies have more foreigners answering their help desk telephones then Americans (or people who could conduct a partial conversation in English for that matter) is another matter for ...
