Knees Together, Arms Flapping
When I wrote A Year with the Hoopers, my only goal was to be as funny as possible. Before doing any other work on the book, I wrote more than 2,000 gags: one-liners, jokes, aphorisms, and cartoons. About 70 of those gags wound up in the book, a few others were shoved into stories and screenplays, and most of the rest were destroyed. The remaining 129 gags are in this ebook.
