The question

A friend of

mine was

crossing the

street in

Los Angeles

when he

was struck

by a car

and killed.

***

They tell me,

at the time,

he had been

wearing a

“Who farted?” t-shirt.

***

And that, for me, somehow made it worse

***

Because if

movies

have taught

me anything,

***

the clothes you die in, are the clothes you will wear for all eternity.

***

So,  now,

not only

will he

never know

who farted

***

but he’ll be forever asking …

I took myself too

far one day,

and filled up an

empty chamber.

Spun the wheel,

closed my eyes,

almost pulled the

trigger

***

Oh, what a night.

Oh, what a fight.

I went too far.

She took the car.

***

I was alone with

myself, seriously

doubting my

emotional health

***

Help! I cried out

That girl turned me

inside out.

***

Took advantage

of my collapse,

put the pistol in

the freezer

Grabbed some

ice,

a bottle of gin

found me a day

old pizza

***

Oh, what a night …

***

I was alone with myself …

***

Inside out, inside out

Inside out, inside out

Never thought

she’d go and leave me

inside out, inside out.

***

It must have

been the booze, or

something else

I started feeling

better,

grabbed my bike

and hit the road

***

I’ll find her

sooner or later.

***

Rainy night,

I was pretty tight,

ran the light,

never saw the car.

***

I was alone with myself …

A simpler age

I suspect

salad dressing

harkens back to

a more

modest time in

our society

.

“TA-DA!”

***

I am often asked,

what would happen if I were to die before finishing my life’s work at trefology?

***

Well, …

firstly,

dear Readers,

do not fear

my passing.

***

When my day

comes I will

embrace the

unknown

with open arms.

***

Why?

Because I have a back-up plan!

***

Now, I have not, yet, fully

fleshed out this plan,

but, here is my pledge to you:

***

I will, one day,

return to earth,

to complete my

work at trefology

***
How? Again, I don’t, yet, know.

***

But that is why,

when I die,

I have requested

to be buried

in …

***

a straight jacket,

blind-folded,

wrapped in chains,

and with

the lid of the coffin

nailed air-tight.

***

That way, on the chance that I am successful,

***

it will be a double good trick.

TREFOLOGY AROUND THE TOWN

***

Good news, readers!

***

My ‘Jokes for Kids’

feature

is a hit with the kids!

***

Just this past

weekend,  I was

dining with

my betrothed at a

cafe in

East Hollywood,

when a

six year old boy

came up to my

table and said,

“I enjoy your work”

***

He asked

if I would sign his

copy of

Hi-lights for Children magazine,

and then,

suddenly,

it hits me —

he was confusing me

for another writer!

***

But I didn’t want

to disappoint.

So, I nodded politely,

and signed,

“Garry Cleveland Myers”

over the

Goofus & Gallant cartoon.

***

Then I finished my meal.
