What's funny? What isn't? And why do I never get a laugh when I tell that joke about the moose?

N as in Nothing


pretty subtle, huh?


  1. I was half-expecting ("Half-expecting"? Is that like "a little bit pregnant"?) "N is for New Year," but I guess there aren't a lot of jokes about Rosh Hashana.

    Anyway, Shana Tovah to (counting the leader, listed followers, and other frequent commenters whom I know) Jerry, Risa, Kate, Alex, Janet, Eric, Harvey, Josh, Ellen, and Steve; half of Paul, Jon, and Dave; and one-fourth of Julia.

    (Any other jokes of *that* sort will presumably come under "R is for Religion.")

  2. Oh, and Dane's wife and half (each) of his kids, if it's *that* Dane.

    Word verification: "nonio" -- a satirical "news"paper written in Reverse Pig Latin.

  3. Are you all familiar with the chapter in Ethel Merman's autobiography about her husband (for 32 days)Ernest Borgnine? It shares some similarity with the subject (and is funny!)


  4. It's time to start thinking of jokes for "R as in Repent".

    Word verification: "Boope": A last name changed to appear more WASPish.

  5. Shucks, folks, I'm speechless...
