Que Funny

Just posted the September 2010 column, The Humorless Twit Es Bilingual. Here’s a short excerpt:

Because Miami has such a large Spanish-speaking population, you’ll see many businesses catering to this population with signs and literature in Spanish. But because these businesses are located in the United States, they still have to keep one foot, as it were, in the English world. This sometimes results in unintentionally funny (to “Spanglish” speakers, anyway) placards and the like.

Photos of these unintentionally funny signs have made their way around the Internet, in much the same way as photos of hilariously translated signs (from Chinese or Japanese) have been posted on the funny and famous website Engrish.com (one of my favorite sites, by the way).

The Humorless Twit is now available on your cell phone! Now you can go mobile with the Twit and read our columns anywhere (our personal favorite reading spot is the john). If your cell phone doesn’t automatically pick up the mobile version of the site, there’s a link at the bottom of the page (and a link to the mobile site here too).

So now you don’t have any excuses for not reading The Humorless Twit! Well, except for that whole quality (or lack thereof) issue.

We’ve posted all the humor columns for 2010 thus far:

Oh yeah, in keeping with the whole photo thing we mentioned in our last post, we’ve included a photo of a moldy peach at the top of this post. :-)

In case you haven’t already noticed, we’ve done a major redesign to the site. We’ve used a WordPress theme called Arras Theme and we think it’s great. Naturally, we had to “pimp” it a bit to get it to our liking but this theme is easy to modify, thankfully.

We’ve also caught up on posting our columns and, in order to get stuff working well with the new theme, we’re using more photos than before.

See what we mean? This new theme has some great features and we plan to add even more stuff soon, so be sure to visit frequently!
