Yeah, yeah, I know. “The Humorless Twit is behind the times.” Nyuk, nyuk. Okay. Well.

I’ve finally added the rest of the columns from 2010. Now it’s on to 2011…

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).

Scientist conducting a study

We’ve just posted the Summer 2010 column, titled The Humorless Twit Says “Study This.” Here’s a little snippet:

Most recently, the news had on a story about a study that noted sleeping too little can shorten your life (by the way, for those of you who recall, I have a now one-year-old son I wrote about for last summer’s issue and as I write this, I had a measly three hours of sleep last night [which might explain this column…]).

That got me to thinking about all the other studies I’ve heard about in the past that claim if you engage in behavior A, your life will be shortened by X years (or Y percent). So I decided out of sheer boredom curiosity to see which of these supposedly life-shortening behaviors I take part in, and by how long my life will be shortened.

Aunt Stabby

Okay, finally, our latest humor column, for May 2010, has been posted online.

Here’s a little snippet:

DEAR STABBY: I was two weeks away from getting married. Everything was beautifully planned—it was going to be a fairy tale wedding. But then I caught my fiancee cheating on me with my bridesmaid! Can you help me, Stabby? DESPONDENT IN DAYTON

DEAR DESPERATE DUMB (Twit’s note: censored again!) IN DAYTON: You want me to send someone to take care of him for you? Just let me know, I have peeps.
