Bill Linden


Bill's occupations in previous lives include being a bitter and disillusioned graphic designer/art director for the Chicago Sun-Times, a bitter and disillusioned Hollywood screenwriter and a bitter and disillusioned gag writer for major comic strips. Bill's been a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king. Bill's been up and down and over and out, but he knows one thing—each time he finds himself flat on his face, Bill picks himself up and gets back in the race.

When not writing gags, photographing Chicago or being bitter and disillusioned, Bill finds his charity work with the elderly quite rewarding. Once a week he takes his dear, feeble, white-haired mother, Josephine, to Denny's for a "Moons Over My Hammy".

Bill has no vices. His hobbies include smoking, drinking and Facebooking 24/7.

Bill lives way beyond his means with his current sexy redheaded missus, Karen, in a fancy-but- not-schmancy downtown Chicago hi-rise run by Hitler's Youth.

Bill lives by the motto, "If you can't beat 'em, mock 'em, then ridicule 'em on the Facebook Social Media Network until they unfriend and block you."
