Smart and funny, the basics of a good joke


It’s a great moment whenever a writer says something — anything — succinctly, and an even better moment when it is funny. It helps if you can tell the writer knows a hell of a lot about the serious issue behind the joke he or she is making.

Anyways, my cousin Chris Taylor did all of the above in this post at his blog, Everything Indonesia.

All together now, to 2008: Good riddance.

Since we’re all now overanxious, overmedicated, and broke, may history treat this past year like a junior tranche of subprime-mortgage-backed collateralized debt obligations. (Tee hee, a little finance humor.)
Hopefully 2009 will bring better things for all. And if not … you can always wash the bad news away with a really good Pinot Noir.
Well said, Chris.
