I enjoy humor. I know everybody does, but I really enjoy it. Growing up, I didn’t watch sports. I would instead sneak down at night, turn on HBO, and watch comedians while recording their sets on cassette. Then I could play it over and over ago, and try to figure out the subtle genius that is a well-posited dick joke. I never wanted to be a comedian, nor write for a television show, or books, or films. I probably don’t have the chops for any of that, quite frankly. I just enjoy making my friends laugh.
I have been sending out funny (but true) stories to his friends for the past 15 years. In the early years, I would get into crazy scenarios (like drinking a 40oz of Olde English 800 in McDonald’s while eating dinner). But the problem with doing crazy things, is you generally upset a lot of folks. Like police and other authorities. Plus, you’re usually a giant asshole. People who are funny don’t have to do stuff like that. They’re just funny.
So, this website is simply for people who enjoy my sense of humor. I got the idea years ago in my early twenties when I was working for a beer manufacturer, touring around the country doing crazy things. I would post my road-reports and send mass emails to my friends.
During those days I was once in Chicago, on break, and at a random party where I knew just a few people. A girl was introduced and after hearing my name said, “I get your emails – I love them!” And yet, we couldn’t connect how she received them. She wasn’t on my list, nor a direct friend of anyone I knew. I know this sounds stupid, but it was like the highest compliment I could receive. I had a pretty crappy life, I guess. But, I realized that these emails were forwarded at least a few times, which says at least I was more interesting than those email forwards your grandmother sent you about God. Those sucked.
So, ten years later I’m going to try the Web 2.0 version. Enjoy.
