Last night, after doing my usual slapstick schtick with my daughter, my wife and daughter asked me if I could go a whole day without making a joke. So, today, I have embarked upon that endeavor.

My Instant Messenger discussions, normally bursting with artfully crafted dick jokes, have been stripped bare of their humor. My emails have been lacking their perfunctory opening witticisms. Now, we must see what one of my blog posts looks like, without any attempts to crack wise.

Without further ado, here is what I have to tell the blogosphere:

Who are you, Chandler Bing? Make a joke & tell wifey to pull my finger if she can't take it. :)

No fair posting smart-alecky comments on a day when I can't respond in kind.

This isn't fair to the rest of us! Punish the wife with no sex and take away the candy from the kid. See if they like that eh? Be a bully tomorrow and come back and write something funny.

Isn't this against some human rights laws or something? Surely? Take you wife and kid to a tribunal - it's the only way.

Inky, I'm going to recommend that you never go into a career as an advice columnist.

Siôn, I'm afraid that you have overestimated the flexibility of our American judicial system. My only alternatives were to either run and hide or report them as terrorists. I strongly considered the latter.

Ah Mike...thanks for the recommendation. I actually am a reporter in real life for a newspaper...and my editors have told me the same damn thing. I'd make a horrible advice girl... but I must be doing something right cuz I took home two South Dakota writing awards this past May for human interest. So...take that and shove up kindly :) hee hee hee. Oh come on now Mike. Where's the love now???

Dang, I got spanked by a girl named Inky. I got no comeback. I have never won a writing award.
