FEEL MY HAIR PAIN?

OMG

OMG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A really bad hair day makes you want to pull your hair out.

We’ve all had them. Triple digit humidity makes them worse. No root spray. No gel. No hair stylist on tap.

Before you know it, you look like Moe from The Three Stooges.

And, of course, that’s exactly when you have a rare opportunity to have your photo taken with one of your favorite humorists and writing idols… Pulitzer Prize winning author Dave Barry.

Why didn’t I just cut those horrendous bangs myself with the corkscrew in the hotel room?

And where’s a propeller hat when you need one?

Dave Barry

Dave wrote a funny book with Alan Zweibel called Lunatics.

“Soon to be a major motion picture” with Steve Carrell.

A BIG THANK YOU to the National Society of Newspaper Columnists for a memorable conference.

Feeling stressed?

Battered by Frankenstorm?

Fatigued from all the election hullabaloo?

I feel your pain. Laughter will soothe you, and maybe get you through November’s other Fun Fest – “open enrollment” for health insurance.

Here is a collection of humor on health by a bunch of entertaining comedy writers that will cheer you up!

I have an essay in it called “Your Recent Stay With Us.” It concerns a hospital stay. You will relate.

Fun! Fun! Fun!

 

The ebook is available on Amazon for $2.99 – do it for your health.

Snarky Tips from My Teen

15 Oct

Tina Fey‘s 5 year old daughter Alice says crazy funny things all the time. She’s constantly cracking Tina up. How cute!

Did I say… she’s five?

As daughters become older, they become increasingly brutal entertaining and wise – especially with their advice.

parenting

 

Tips From My Teen

  •   Lose the Carol Brady haircut.
  •   Nothing dates you more than saying “groovy.”
  •   Don’t chat with the grocery store cashier like she’s a long lost BFF.
  •   Don’t pay for HBO. Watch TV on your computer for free.
  •   Chill.
  •   Ordering hummus in a restaurant is wrong on many levels.
  •   No matter how whimsical you feel, leave the glitter eye shadow to Disney Pop Stars.
  •   Don’t respond to a text message right away – it looks desperate.
  •   “The Beatles” is a lousy name for a band. Get over it.
  •   Too much make-up on 5 year olds and 50 year olds is equally as scary.
  •   Chill.
  •   If you slept with JFK or Warren Beatty, I DON’T want to hear about it. I don’t even know who Warren Beatty is.
  •   Baggy pants make you look like OMG you’re wearing a diaper.
  •   Don’t panic if you can’t understand WTF your laptop is doing.
  •   Study a texting dictionary (online) of acronyms so you understand the “newfangled” lingo.
  •   Coddling the cat/dog like he’s a human child strikes many as needy.
  •   Stop with the Viva Viagra jokes. It’s LOL pathetic.
  •   Anyone seriously considering an eyebrow transplant is much older than they think they are.
  •   Sudoku is no substitute for a real hobby like windsurfing or limbo skating.
  •   Chill.

Weekend Funny 5 More Signs Death Is Near

28 Sep

5 More Signs “Death” Is Near!

1.  Location. Location. Location. You are reclining in a cozy donut pool float, gloriously buzzed on Jamaican rum cocktails, drifting in the balmy blue Caribbean… but a hungry shark has a hankering for your pricey, dutifully applied 70 SPF face lotion.

2.  Politics. You’ve stopped screaming like a banshee at the election year coverage on the cable news channels.

3.  Loss of thirst for your favorite wine, Chateau St. Jean French Chardonnay. Say it ain’t so.

4.  Sex. You no longer consider vaginal rejuvenation a viable option.

5.  Money. Compulsive couponing has lost its charm. You really can’t take that extra 15 cents with you? Damn.
