I love this site. I have been reading it almost daily for a few months now. Not because of its generic, blue, movable type format. Not because it has beautiful photos or other art. But because the writer is a 21-year-old guy whose observations and stories are funny, overwhelmingly funny in some instances.
He started the blog in January 2004. He got his first comment from a reader on his second post entitled “Ongoing weather coverage.” Not a single post goes without comments now.
He has a sidebar with headings like “About Me and This Blog” and all of these entries are entertaining in themselves, including 1 Thing About Me which tells you 1. I will never make a ‘100 Things About Me’ list. That should clue you in on his dry wit. The only confusion I have on the site is also in the Sidebar with the heading “Past Blog Entries.” I think he has just randomly chosen entries here because they don’t appear to be in any order of any kind. If they are some of his favorite posts (or his readers’ favorites), perhaps he should say so.
He has both long posts (I still laugh at the post called “Are You Afraid of Birds”) and short posts with quick observations like “I think the worst day to be stabbed in the head would be Halloween.” If you can’t laugh at least once while visiting this site, well, I don’t think you have a funny bone, honestly.
I hope he does succeed in whatever comedy field he pursues. I also hope he still writes in his blog for a long, long time. I would give this site a higher score, but I don’t want him to stop trying to out-funny himself.
I think I want to be a comedian.
