QUICK HUMOUR: Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?
Twenty-five-year-old Saturday Night Live (SNL) writer Simon Rich brings the funny with his must-read 2008 book of short humour, Free-Range Chickens. Here’s a sample.
GOD: Who is that guy swimming in the lake?
Angel: Joshua Alpert.
GOD: Really? In that case…. [Strikes lake with lightning]
Angel: Whoa…God…Why did you do that?
GOD: Oh, he was a horrible human being. He shot his own parents when he was twelve years old. In fact, he was the youngest murderer in the history of Nebraska.
Angel: But…that guy was from Vermont.
GOD: Don’t tell me there are two Joshua Alperts.
