Dear Susan;

Pretty Funny!

The first girl I married had a nitwit for a boyfriend who was an acid freak. She maintained a relationship with him through her parents who lived 150 miles away. I found their letters & his clothes from our college days after she had moved out for the 20+ time. Anyway, about 4 years ago I saw this tall skinny, bright red-headed forlone looking dude begging for money in south GA, at a truck stop I frequent. About a month later here he was in the walmart plaza shopping center, skinnier & just plain looking like he was on his last legs. I gave him some money & he jumped up & headed for the Happy Gardens buffet. It was about ten minuites latter I realized who he was. Been laughing about it ever since.

Last winter I was in a shopping mall west of Ogelthorp, Ga getting ready to eat at a real good chinese buffet after loading at Andersonville, Ga, when a small older man asked me if I could spare some money. He went on to proclame, "man, I'm broke & I'm out of my hemmroid medication & I need it bad!" A couple of weeks latter, here he was again. He thanked me profusely for "saving his life"!

You made my day. After working with some of the people I work with, I needed a good laugh. Thanks for the chuckle!

Does she get paid to write this stuff? it's really shocking to me that it gets in print, I've yet to see anything entertaining about her colums and certainly never felt the need to laugh. And I'm pretty sure I have a sense of humor....I'm just lost when I see people gushing and LOLing and rotfl cause I'm sitting here totally frikkin confused as to what humor I apparently missed in the article!!! I feel like I'm in the twilight zone.

To Free and Transplanted:
Put a sock in it. If you don't like someone's writing, stop reading it. Susan is obviously liked by many readers, or she wouldn't be in the paper. You don't have to read it, so why do you? It's not a requirement that you share every thought you have. You two are wet blankets, whiners, rainers on the parade. Find some happiness, or keep it to yourselves. You add nothing.

Susan says in the article that she "was planning to blather." To be more accurate, that's all she did in this article and that's all she ever does in her articles. ACT -- please find a writer who has something meaningful to say.

I didnt think that was funny, either. Nor would I have chosen to poke fun at someone with a glass eye, either. Whether this actually happened, or not.

Yes. I thought it was cutesy once but it's jumped the shark now. At least to me, sometimes it's good for a chuckle.

I was expecting her to talk about someone flashing her b00bs at her though.

Boyle was comedy gold when he'd go on his funny rants, why they reined him in is beyond me. "Man funk" always had me rolling on the floor.

It's the same four posters who are so negative.
Free,Radar, Transplanted, Rick m...Please don't read my stuff if it offends you.
I have two best-selling book, however, if you'd like to read more of the humor others love and you find so offensive.

I don't think its offensive, but it sure is boring. You got it right on the 'blather' part though.
