Dog sitting at office desk, working

Corporate captive by day, comedy crusader by night. (Only the day job pays more, unfortunately.)

Thank you for visiting! I’m an aspiring comedy writer who’s ensnared in the cruel and insufferable nightmare of corporate servitude. My cubicle is too small, and the vending machine doesn’t sell the gluten-free pretzels I like. While the splendor of nature unfolds in the glorious outdoors, I sit staring at a computer on a rolling chair with a broken wheel. When I called the Facilities Department, they transferred me to IT, who told me to reboot the chair.

And if you think that’s funny, you should see my paycheck.

I started this blog to make the Internet laugh, but I probably do that already with my dating profile. Plus, it gives me a distraction from lamenting my lost hopes and dreams, which takes a considerable part of my day.

I appreciate your stopping by, and I hope the content’s interesting enough to keep you coming back. It’s not all humor here all the time — I write my fair share of serious posts, too — including this one and this one. I try to strike a fair balance between poignant observations and ridiculous fart jokes.

Which is to say, there are no rules here (except, of course, for washing your hands and putting the seat down … though not necessarily in that order).

Thanks again for dropping by, and I hope to see you around here often.

  1. Allen, I’m so grateful I didn’t have to resort to bribery to influence you into following my Attic. With humor being in short supply these days, its nice to see that you are one of the keepers of the flame also, and you’re doing it without matches! Once people find out your blog is here, and that it’s funny, they’ll be back for more, so be sure to charge them for it. ;o)

    • Ha! No bribery required — your blog is hilarious. I’m glad I found it. It’s also great to meet a fellow flame-keeper (although last night was cabbage night in my household, so open flames might not be a good idea right now).

      I’m looking forward to checking out more of your writing, and thanks for following. And as far as charging admission, I might put a hat on the sidewalk and prime it with a couple of dollars. So by the end of the day, when the crowd has dispersed, I’ll have made $2.


  2. Pleasure to meet you.

  5. Okay I could barely get past the photo comment without laughing. Nice to know I have a place to come for making me laugh (meaning choke on my tea so that it feels like I’m drowning.)

    I’m sorry your office job is uninspiring, personally mine has been great source of inspiration for murder plots. (I think that’s why they took away my stapler).

    • I’m glad you got that far. Most people can’t get past the photo *itself* without laughing. I was trying to pull off a rugged mountain-man pose, but all we’re left with is a pasty-faced cubicle-inhabitant getting scorched by the sun. It was the first time in years I’d seen light.

      It’s never a good sign when management absconds with your stapler. But as long as they don’t make you wear the Hannibal Lecter mask as part of your uniform, your job should still be secure.
