Now something from Sally. Wry Writing Humour

A writer comes home to a burned down house. His sobbing and slightly-singed wife is standing outside. “What happened, honey?” the man asks.

“Oh, John, it was terrible,” she weeps. “I was cooking, the phone rang. It was your agent. Because I was on the phone, I didn’t notice the stove was on fire. It went up in second. Everything is gone. I nearly didn’t make it out of the house. Poor Fluffy is–”

“Wait, wait. Back up a minute,” The man says. “My agent called?”

Aspirations

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.

When asked to define great, he said, “I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!”

He now works for WordPress writing updates to the Classic Editor!


Thanks for joining us today and we hope you are leaving with a smile on your face… Debby and Sally.

  1. Debby, I love the hearing aids for men and the blackened chicken. I canrelate to both those!
    And Sally, the pen names are great. What about At the bottom of the Cliff by Eileen Dover and Baby Sitting by Justin Casey Howells?

  2. Loved the Blackened Chicken recipe – though I can make that one when I sit down with a book. The pen names were great but the winner for me was the WordPress updater to the Classics Editor!
