Joke Time! Writing humor and gags worth a giggle


Writing can be serious business. So today I want to lighten the mood by sharing a few of my favorite writing jokes and gag gifts.

Sadistic Mouse

Want to keep a writer productive? Gift them this chocolate bar ice cream sandwich mouse, from Amazon. Tell them they can have the real thing when they make deadline. We really will work for food--if it's yummy enough!

Exception to the Rule

A linguistics professor was lecturing to his English class one day. "In English," he said, "a double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative."

A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah, right."


You can find this joke and more here.

What's that smell?

No potty humor here. Spray Smell of Books when your writing friend is reading an ebook and laugh as they express their amazement at how realistic their device is.
Jungle Wisdom

A hungry African lion came across two men. One was sitting under a tree and reading a book; the other was typing away on his typewriter. The lion pounced on the man reading the book and devoured him.

Even the king of the jungle knows that readers digest and writers cramp.

Sticky Situation

Know a writer that gets a little crazy with the Post-It notes? Dab a little super glue between each sheet and watch their frustration soar!

You didn't hear it from me, but..

Q. What's the difference between publishers and terrorists?

A. You can negotiate with terrorists.
