I’m not sure why I’m writing this. Let me rephrase. I started writing these dumb jokes to practice writing dumb jokes. I shared them publicly to just put the stuff out there.
I don’t want to give up on this. But, this reminds me how I felt after September 11th. I was working on making comic books at the time. Just scripts, my art didn’t match well with the kind of comic book stories I was trying to tell at the time. And the day after September 11th, it felt really trivial.
But then, I am a big fan of Sullivan’s Travels. That whole movie is about a guy who makes comedy, and thinks it’s all fluff and meaningless, realizing that helping people laugh is a worthy effort.
I’m not sure if these Daily Dumb Jokes are working. But I know there’s no dumb joke today. I could barely get through reading the news! I imagine some of you are feeling the same way.
