The Continuing Saga Of Jim Sullivan, Clown


As in funny ha-ha.


There I am, mentioned on the cover, only 7 spots below Dave Barry (still my contemporary) and just 5 spots below Bruce Cameron (whoever in hell he is.)

(That's a cheap joke, unbecoming of such a laugh riot as myself. Bruce Cameron is a very funny fellow and writes circles around me. I wish he'd stop. It's very annoying.)

(Hey, if you want real laughs, you have to buy the issue. Sorry.)

You could go here...


FUNNY TIMES

... and subscribe. That way you'll get every issue, whether I'm in it or not. Of course, that means you'll be stuck reading Barry and Cameron every month.

OK, I'll stop before I completely alienate those two superbly funny guys. But, before I do, imagine how Andy Borowitz feels being four spots underneath me. If I was him, I'd probably take off the top of my head and run a cheese grater over my brain.

Soon, with more better stuff.

You need to start writing in publications that put their stuff on the intar-webs.

Just sayin'.

Oh! And congrats!

You need to create your own literary magazine so you are on the top. Then invite Dave Barry and the other contemporaries to contribute. Offer Pleasant Cafe pizza as compensation per article -- by the slice.

I've mentioned before, I'm sure how much I've enjoyed Bruce Cameron's columns for years. He's one of my all time favourites. But I REALLY like that Sullivan guy.

I love you people. I really do.

I love Dave Barry, but it's the truth that you're my go-to funny guy these days!

(not necessarily your) Uncle Skip, said...

You could be as famous as Dave Barry if you wrote a really funny colonoscopy story...

...or about a petrified walrus johnson.

Nah, you do just fine without gimmicks.

I know who Sullivan is, who is this Dave Barry guy?

You really spread your love around dontcha? From Discovery, to the BH, and now Funny Times. Pretty soon you'll be writing speeches for Mr. Obama.

messymimi said...

Trust me, i'm pulling for you! Your stories deserve to be told.

Suldog said...

Shammickite - Oh, wouldn't I love to - providing he doesn't get to read them before he delivers them. That would be a blast.

I think Michelle is on to something. And don't listen to Skip, I did a hugely funny (well I thought it was) colonoscopy story and Dave Barry still won't return my calls.

Maybe he's busy staying one step ahead of you?

so one question .. did you get the equivalents right?
