Need a Laugh?

Dagnabbit! While browsing the many blogs I've decided to follow I came across a reference to Jokes about Writers by Ginger Edwards and I can't remember whose blog it was from. Nevertheless,  it's a small but funny collection of jokes for anyone who's passed the day at the computer, gnawing their nails to the bone. You can add a joke too if you like. Here's an example:

A screenwriter 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?”


  1. Ha! This was me over the weekend. Well, minus the agent. And the stove fire. And the ... Fluffy.

    Okay, it wasn't me at all. But it felt like it. lol

  2. Love this - thanks for making me smile. (And your comment on my blog was spot-on - thanks. Often needs someone else to find the right metaphor.)

  3. @Jes- my pleasure

    @JO- you had me with 'eel vomit'
