I would be terribly remiss if I didn't mention that my co-humourist and writer friend Carl Vine, of Somewhere in Ohio, is a finalist in the Robert Benchley Society annual humor writing contest competition thing. You can read his entry here: http://www.robertbenchley.org/2009_competition/09-029.htm
You can find a link to his very funny blog down there on the left somewhere...
He and I have both entered the HumorPress.com contest so I think it would be entirely appropriate for me to win that one, and have Carl win the Robert Benchley one. He would get flown to Boston to a gala dinner with the society crowd.
I would get 100 bucks. Huh.
Anyway I wish him nothing but success as we both make valiant attempts at making people chuckle.
