Carnival of Comedy coming to town, any clowns interested? 

Later this week I'll be hosting the Carnival of Comedy right here on these very pages. I hope you'll all come back and check it out. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll curse the day they taught you to read. Yes, my hosting skills can have that effect on people. But if hosting the Carnival of Comedy gives just one person somewhere a single laugh, or even a barely suppressed chuckle, then it will have been worth it.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to appeal to anyone out there who thinks they're funny -- or even potentially funny -- to write something and submit it to the Carnival. What's the worst that could happen? Even if I brutally ridicule it as the single most unfunny post in the Carnival's history, you'll still end up with tons and tons of visitors who just HAVE to see what could POSSIBLY be that bad. So what have you got to lose except your dignity?

Read the Carnival, submit to it, or both. Go ahead and give it a try; all the cool kids are doing it. You know you want to.

If you really, really liked this -- or even really, really hated it -- there's lots more:
