Keeping a journal is recommended practice for all writers, comedians and even crazy people. I keep a writing journal. Several. Most of the stuff should never be seen by eyes other than mine, and even my eyes find the writing troublesome. This is the stuff I decided to share. Thank you for not laughing.

With the world going slightly insane, conventional wisdom and common sense are out the window. Baby Boomers should be retiring, but why bother? Travel is hard, money is troubling, doctors saddle us with drugs, and people are just plain rude. We'd like to stand up and tell the world off, if only we weren't so darned polite. Fortunately, we have a champion to speak our collective mind.

Tastes Like Human: The Shark Guys' Book of Bitingly Funny Lists is an irreverent take on the list book genre from two published humor writers known for their bite. It's a compendium with a scope as broad as the odd tastes of the authors, with topics as varied as Top 5 People/Animal Marriages, to etiquette tips for bus riding and meeting the Queen. (It's very unlikely that you'll do both at once).
