Example: I lucked into a ticket to see Leonard Cohen, tonight, and thought of several jokes such as "L.C. just keeled over on stage! April Fool's!" Very cruel, right?
I was sort of surprised by the reaction to the suggestion that I fake my own death.
It made me want to start an elaborate hoax that didn't involve someone dying, but that just sort of curdled in my brain's mouth until I couldn't even think about it.
I'm just not as hilarious as I think I am.
