"As a humorist, what do you think the funniest thing you've ever written is?"
Actually, calling me "a humorist" is probably funnier than anything I myself have ever said. Bennet Cerf was a humorist (I mean, he published Ayn Rand and James Joyce; he must have had a sense of humor). I'm just a guy who comments on comics, which are themselves (appropriate to their name) intrinsically funny.
But, if I had to answer the question, I'd say the funniest things I've ever written were these sentences:
- "Black Lois cannot be taxied." and
- "I love you, tiny red pony."
I still can't say that last one out loud without laughing my arse off. You had to be there, I guess.
But it's an interesting question for anyone, "humorist" or not...
What's the funniest sentence you've ever written?
