Actually, I'm not even sure that my opening paragraph is that funny.  It makes me laugh though.  Nevertheless, how does one walk the funny tightrope in the PS.  PS anyone down for reading another?

Definitely a fine line... and to some degree case by case, but in particular I'd imagine sarcasm is to be avoided. Anyway, sure, I'll read it: disiloxane@aol.com

but in general I think sarcasm goes under the "if it's done well" / there's an exception to every rule category... and that was fabulous ginatio thx for posting it!

rushmore,

Great movie.  I have a perfectly balanced sense of humor and will definitively determine whether or not your PS is "too funny."  panglossmd1@hotmail.com

PS how ironic that the author ended up hating LS so much he dropped out of the profession entirely and became a writer instead.. :'(
