Humor & Satire

If you’re reading this, you probably already know that I like making people laugh. Fortunately, I’ve found a few publications that dig my style.

Points in Case

PiC has been a good fit for my sense of humor. They publish weirder, riskier pieces that don’t fit the mold established by behemoths like McSweeney’s and The New Yorker who don’t appreciate my subtle genius.

Robot Butt

I wrote this piece for their “dystopian humor” theme week. I love the illustration they used for it!

Reasons to Feel Fine Despite the End of the World As We Know It, Sep 2019

251

Writing hard! So many words! That why 251 short. Short good.

The Erotic Novels of Ernest Hemingway, April 2022

Glossy News

This was my very first published piece, so it still holds a special place in my heart. It’s political satire, written during the 2019 Presidential primaries.
