About That Cracked Article

You know the one I’m talking about. RE: the awkward slavery joke—not defending it because I didn’t write it. That’s what happens when you’re a writer sometimes. Your bosses take your material and add awkward slavery jokes. I’m serious! Read the original script for “Roots” and you’ll see what I mean. That show was originally about a woman who owned a flower shop!

While I’m bitching here, there’s also a hard grammar fumble in the same paragraph as the slave joke that I had nothing to do with. My protests over this died in committee, but hey, it’s not the end of the world. I mean, it’s just one article. If I get shot tomorrow, I’ll still be mostly remembered for my role as “Boy Scout #2” on “Mr. Belvedere.” Bob Uecker was like a second father to me.

In other news, Michael Jackson’s secret girlfriend was an industrial refrigerator and his children are holograms!
