Carnival Of Comedy Turns 21

Carnival of ComedyWelcome to the Carnival of Comedy! It's a special edition, as the Carnival turns 21 today. Well, it's the 21st edition of the Carnival, and that only happens once. Unless I double-post. But I won't. I promise. Too much funny makes you wet your pants, and I don't want to have to clean that up.

Now, you'll want to read this one carefully because SpaceMonkey will not let me host again. You see, my instructions are to split them up into three categories:

  • Real Funny
  • Sorta Funny
  • Not That Funny

Let's make SpaceMonkey mad and ignore him! Bwah-ha-ha-ha!

You see, that's payback to Mr. SpaceMonkey. Seems he gave me the keys to the Carnival of the Lame Posts. Yes, all the submissions are getting trashed today. We've lumped them all together in a fourth category: Stuff Worthy Of Being Made Fun Of.

Now, I'm going to get serious here for a second. Most of these
submissions were indeed funny. I've had a little fun at their expense.
In all honest, I had a difficult time putting them into the three
categories. Each one had it's own special type humor. From silly, to
clever, to mean, to touching, ... well, you get the idea.

To each of the bloggers that submitted: Thanks.

To each of the readers today: I hope you enjoyed my little jabs in addition to the funny stuff in the posts.

To SpaceMonkey: Thanks for letting me play along.

To IMAO: Thanks for the Carnival of Comedy. And for making your stuff available for Pod People.

To Conservative Cat: Thanks for all your help with the submissions!

Oh, and don't forget the upcoming Carnivals of Comedy:

Thanks for playing along.

    Hey, I went for a cheap joke. Yes, your stuff is funny. But, like I said, I went for the easy laugh.

    pastor mark:
    HA! Thanks!

    Mr. Right:
    Most folks think too much was drunk already.

    Jamie Dawn:
    Yes, those were funny! And some of my favorites, too. But really, everything submitted this week has its funny moments. And why don't you submit something next week. Maybe something with "dog butt-sniffing?" Not that you'd write anything like that, of course!

    Join in the fun with Steve next week!
