Friday Funnies

Quote of the Day: A writer's life is not designed to reassure your mother.
~Rita Mae Brown

Okay, I have files full of funny little writer stories and lolcats n dogs that just crack me up. Since I don't normally post on Fridays, I thought I could use this day to share some of my favorites. Enjoy :)




(a friend emailed this one to me, so I don't know the original author)

A writer died, and due to a mix up in the hereafter, she was allowed to choose her own fate: heaven or hell for all eternity. Being very shrewd for a dead person, she asked St. Peter for a tour of both.

The first stop was hell, where she saw rows and rows of writers sitting chained to desks, in a room as hot as a thousand suns. Fire licked the writers' fingers as they tried to work; demons whipped their backs with chains. Your typical hell scene.

"Wow, this is awful," said the writer., appalled "Let's see some heaven."

In a moment, they were whisked to heaven and the writer saw rows and rows of writers chained to desks, in a room as hot as a thousand suns. Fire licked the writers' fingers as they tried to work; demons whipped their backs with chains. It looked and smelled even worse than hell.

"What gives, Pete?" the writer asked. "This is worse than hell!"

"Yes," St. Peter replied, "but here your work gets published."

Ugh...I can't NOT laugh at this, but it made me wince a little, too. Humor in honesty is not the same as humor just for the fun of it, lol.
