I’m looking for essays and short stories that will make readers bust out laughing. The kind you shouldn’t read next to a sleeping partner or slumbering pet. No need to scare them awake with a bark of laughter or a case of the giggles. And yes folks, grown women get the giggles too.
Subject matter/brand of humor is up to the author: political, current events, situational comedy, dry humor, humor in the every day etc.
