Bring the Funny

There are a variety of places I like to go when I need practice material, as I mentioned a while back, but one that I really need to do more of is jokes.


They’re easy to find and fun to do.


And some of them make you look smart.


Or ones that show off your international nature.


But be careful of using a joke that is too dangerous…


In the end, jokes are fun, short things to write out, and if you’re a fan of puns and groaners – like I am – you can enjoy the cognitive dissonance that comes with seeing a really bad joke written in pretty words.

For the comments, finish this joke:

How many calligraphers does it take to change a lightbulb?

Project: Mitchweek

Some Instagram calligraphers and I – @theulzo, @openinkstand, @gourmetcetera, and @dearondine – decided to do a week-long tribute the the late, great Mitch Hedberg. If you’re not familiar with his comedy, go over to YouTube and check him out.

In celebration of his work, I present my choices from this week:
