Friday Funnies

Manuscript: something submitted in haste and returned at leisure. 
~ Oliver Herford 

A good many young writers make the mistake of enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope, big enough for the manuscript to come back in. This is too much of a temptation to the editor. 
~ Ring Lardner 

The only imaginative fiction being written today is income tax returns. 
~ Herman Wouk

 (Totally did not know this :D Hmm...I wonder if this is why I always want desserts when I'm stressed....subliminal messages) :D

The ms quote is so true!

Love the couch picture. The owner must have used Febreze on it. :D

I didn't realize that about Desserts, either.

When I was a drug rep, I wrote a lot of imaginative fiction when it came to my annual plans . . . until head office caught on. Turns out I wasn't the only one. ;)
