My Week with Carolyn

My Week with Marilyn in sunglasses

Day 1

Monday starts like any other Monday for Carolyn: a dead antelope carcass in the bookcase, a vinyl Ludacris album skipping on the stereo, and a Rabbi reciting a fake Torah portion on The Jewish Channel. I nibble on some cold tomato soup as Carolyn emerges from her lair in the laundry room. She mutters something about a Beatles concert she went to in 2002 and then heads to the lavatory. Read More »

The Importance of Laughing Matters

Laughing serious face

Laughter is an important part of everyone's lives. Can you remember the last time you laughed? What caused you to laugh? Who were you pointing at as you laughed? People all over the world laugh. Laughter, over math, is the preferred universal language. Laughter can break cultural barriers. I know this because every time I've vacationed in another country, the local people couldn't stop laughing at me. Seeing all those smiling faces made me feel as if I was still at home. Read More »

The Volcano That LSD Built

Trippy LSD acid optical illusion

When I was a teenager in the UK, I had no shortage of good advice directed my way about how I should live my life. Like many of my peers across the globe I was constantly told to "just say no" to drugs. There were an endless amount of reasons given for saying no, but the one I remember most was that consuming drugs would diminish my ambitions. Read More »

1. ​Keep a Nintendo DS in your burial outfit.

I've never been stuck in a human-sized box six feet under ground for all eternity before, but I'm assuming it gets super boring after a while, so playing Duke Nukem on a fully charged battery should kill about six of those lonely hours. Read More »

Vlad the Cartoonist, Son of Vlad the Impaler

Vlad sat in his creative writing class thinking he had to be really creative. Not for this class, but for his father. Because he couldn't just come out and tell him.

The Biggest Mistake in Mail Order Catalog History

Stop the presses! We can't go to print yet! Andy, hit the pause button there, thanks. This latest issue is missing a description. No, not for the Himalayan Walking Shoes; that was a little late, but it was a hell of a thought-provoking article... good job, Benes. What we are missing here is the description for the Comfort Wipe. You know, that thing you use in the bathroom...you put toilet paper on one end and wipe...yeah, the Shit Stick. I'm missing the description for the Shit Stick. Where is it?? Read More »

How to Be a Successful Writer in 5 Difficult Steps

1. Live in two cities.

Although it can seem daunting to have to pay for two houses, it is crucial that on the back flap of your book, it says that you live in New York City and ___________ (choose a second, usually more rural location).

Why You Have a Hard-On for Fantasy Football

You get a sixer of beer and a four pack of Red Bull. You head down to the "war room," whether it's your buddy's place, or a "home office" you hastily created between your TV and a dying house plant. You peel the seal on the cheese dip and open a bag of chips. The warm smell of dormant potato air breezes by. Read More »
