The Reason Some Things Are Funny

My friend Jane Brda just wished me a happy Rachel Ray birthday. This is funny because of this.

(Yes, that's a link to my book, "Every Freaking! Day with Rachell Ray: An Unauthorized Parody." )

Another thing that is funny (albeit in the "isn't that odd" and "well, one just has to laugh because otherwise one would cry" senses of the word) is that Rachael Ray, for all her mediocrity, is so very popular—-and powerful, perhaps--that some publications wouldn't review or even mention this parody of her for fear that they would lose advertising money or something. Therefore, Rachael Ray is a huge success and I am not. Funny, right?

First of all-I'm honored to be mentioned on your blog.
Secondly-That book is hilarious and you should be a bazillionaire by now!

Go buy that book, people! Rachel Ray-pffft.

I think it all depends on how you define "successful". She might have money, but you have Jane (and me, and plenty of others). She does not have us!

Thanks, Jane.
Good point, Ange.
Believe me, I'm grateful for the people in my life.

You're book is much better than anything she's done.
