a cranelegs pond visitor sent me an email asking if i might comment on my secret to writing such robust wit.
initially, i was humbled.
but an answer was called for, and an answer i would give my inquisitve friend.
or why even be in this business, i say!
so i gave the question considerable thought and responded: "cranelegs thanks you for asking such a probing question. here's my answer, if i may. you see, it always comes down to word choice. for example, why use run when you can use scamper. capisci? scamper is funny. that's humor my friend. that's the secret!"
forget the fact that i sent the original email to myself.
the point is i had a good answer in search of a question.
and god knows, if i waited around for someone else to ask, well there's no telling when this gem would be shared, if ever.
so i got a little proactive.
took the bull by the horns and slung it something good.
i just didn't need to send an email response to myself with auto-reply on is all, some 10,341 times before servers began crashing and smoke commenced from out of my motherboard.
that's what i'm talking about.
that's a funny word.
it's killer funny, and it just came to me naturally, like hyenas to a fresh carcass (or something else gross like that).
