Jared Fiel: Humor Columnist

  •  Are we starting to see the Housing Bubble Burst in the wake of Hurricane Katrina? In New Orleans many homeowner’s had their equity literally washed away. They are upside down in negative equity and basically underwater. It appears that the New Orleans Housing marker has gone down the drain. New Orleans experienced significant growth in the past year, prices had increased; many had taken out second loans to pay off credit car debt, which helped fuel the economy there. Relatively few need ...
  •  An artist/bohemian type working for themselves is perceived in a variety of ways by the general public. A lot of the perception has to do with a combination of the artist`s cashflow and apparel strategy, as opposed to the stirrings of their soul. Strangely, as a young man, people often saw me as a responsible, solid guy. Ha!In the early eighties I ran my screen printing operation out of a funky old warehouse by the railroad tracks in Eugene, Oregon. Enormous pastry and coffee in hand, I’...
  •  The Army Corp of engineers is having a tough time filling in the breaches in the levees. They have tried to use giant sand bags to drop into the hole. Three-Thousand pound bags have been dropped into the breach but to no avail. Lake Pontchartrain has a lot of weight behind it and fixing the breach and pumping out the water could take months.I therefore have an idea. Now before you say my idea is crazy, remember the President to think on this and that no idea is too far out, we need to put ...
  •  Despite my diplomas that allowed me to teach in state secondary schools, and my requests, I had been appointed to teach to a sixth-grade class. At least, I almost worked in my backyard. The morning classes went smoothly. I knew that my pupils were experiencing many new situations. In primary school, they were all day long in the same classroom with the same teacher, who knew them by their first name. During their first sixth-grade day, they met a different teacher at each hour, each time i...
  •  Just recently my ex-husband stopped in to visit during His vacation. In the course of small talk, a few old memories usually crop up in the conversation. One that instantly came to mind was the day our second son was born.It was early Sunday morning on a crisp day in the middle of May when I was awakened from my sleep by what I knew to be labor pains. Since it was my second pregnancy I was not alarmed. I already had one child so I felt like an old pro. I knew it was early labor and I had p...
  • Boy Becomes Man( A boys journey into manhood while on a camping trip )By Kyle HoffmanMen fart too much. They do it a lot. They laugh and joke about it and even admit with great pride their best accomplishment. I am confident tonight in my slumbering sleep that the silence of the dark forest will be broken by the thundering roar of the men's evening dinner. The dawn harkens the call of anal artillery. Each pungent bouquet is accompanied by a booming report. And when the rectal siren's song ceases...
  •  I love animals but cats are my favorites. There’s just something about them that makes me relate to them so easily. My family has usually always had at least one cat among us as far back as I can remember. As with people there are just some animals that seem to have that special something. Harry was one of them. I fell in love with him almost immediately. The bond between us grew and Harry became my cherished friend and companion as well as a valued member of our family.Harry’s magneti...
  •  I`ve never really thought of myself as being funny. I don`t have much of a sense of humor at all. My ex-husband used to tell me dumb jokes all the time and I didn`t laugh, not even to be polite like everyone else would do. Yet the strange thing is that people who`ve read some of my life stories have found them to be hilarious. I`m not sure if that`s good or bad considering those stories actually happened.Let me put it another way: I`m not really funny; I just do dumb things. What kind of t...
  •  Have you ever noticed how family members always misbehave at the most inappropriate moments? Well, let me tell you, it`s not just the little ones that spout off with remarks that make you want to don a cloak of invisibility.My son was just having one of those days. You know those days - when everything goes wrong and you just wish you would`ve stayed in bed. We all have those days. Some of us have them more often than others.He knew what kind of day it was going to be once he spilled his m...
  •  LibraHit TV show ‘The X Factor’ is back on our screens giving us all a rare, legitimate chance to laugh at the mentally ill during the audition stages. In this PC berserk world we now live in, such an activity has become scandalously frowned upon so it’s only right to thank ITV for reviving this tragically forgotten pleasure by switching on in your droves. Also coming soon to your screens….Black & White Minstrel Idol!ScorpioIt’s time to confront your partner about their recent su...
