Funny is important to me.
I like trying to be funny. I’m not sure if I always succeed, but hey, it’s good to have aspirations. My family and my workmates may have to regularly suffer some of my less memorable attempts, but isn’t that the price of success? In order to come up with a truly memorable zinger, you need to throw off numerous verbal mediocrities. And somebody has to be there to listen to them, don’t they?
