I have an announcement. In light of the U.S. presidential election going on today, my announcement is quite small. But it is nevertheless a big step for me, as well as for the Deja Reviewer website. Effective immediately, I am discontinuing my Joke of the Week section. I’ve had a lot of fun coming up with jokes and publishing them each week, but it’s time to take it to the next phase: I’m going to try to publish a book with 365 of my jokes – one for every day of the year.
Two years ago I started coming up with jokes for the amusement of myself and my friends. Over time I kept coming up with more and more jokes, and they kept getting better. I got to 200 a few months ago, and I thought that was an impressive feat. And then October 2012 happened. My creativity went through the roof. I was thinking of multiple jokes every day, sometimes 10 in a single day. When the dust settled, I had come up with more than 120 jokes in October, putting me well over my goal of 365.
I spent this past week going through all of my jokes and putting them in order on the calendar. That was a huge job, but I managed to finish it, and now I’m going to start the process of refining them further with the help of friends and family members until they’re ready to be submitted to publishers.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my jokes each week. I published 72 of them since creating this website last year, so there are plenty to go around. I hope that I’ll be able to share all of my jokes with you in hardcover and electronic book format in the near-future. Exciting things are coming. This won’t affect my regular articles. You can continue to come back to get my unique perspective on films every week.
This is the Deja Reviewer bidding you farewell until we meet again.
