    Check out "The Sexy Dragon Buffet" in the humor section. It's the first humor piece I've ever written so critique and such is welcomed!

    If this is improper, would somebody please PM and let me know? And, then please delete this post so I won't be totally humiliated.

    I just ran across this thread and it looks like it's the place to post information about threads we've started in the SYW Humor genre - and to offer rep points to those who take time to read/critique. In case anyone's interested, I've started threads for:

    02/24/07: "Colorful Granny"
    02/24/07: "Thermostat Man"
    03/16/07: "The Fine Art of Cleaning the Bird Cage"
    04/01/07: "We're Having a Baby"

    Need some feedback on this piece. It's my first attempt at writing humor. It started out as a gently humourous story for children, then devolved into Goldilocks and the Manson Family. Is it funny at all? I need to know.
    Rep points for all - whether you love, like, hate, or are just meh.

    Thanks.

    I would really like some input on my piece, Saturday Sadists. It's a play on words for those that are worried about content.

    Hi

    I've got a post up in Nonfiction SYW, which I think is technically the correct place -- I gave the Mods overnight to disagree -- but is not the place where my intended audience lives.

    As much as I'm enjoying the thought of serious essay-minded people wondering what the heck to make of it, I'd be so grateful if a Humor-person could swing by.

    Buyer beware, tho: It's loooong for hopefully-funny. ~1650 words or so. And since a link'll jump straight to it, please note that it has some mild profanity and may or may not be a little sexually suggestive. It's here, assuming I inserted the link correctly.

    (I was going to post it in Humor, but it's quite rough and I had these visions of people suggesting the kinds of changes that can't be made to NF.)

    Thanks!

    I posted a short silly thing a few days ago. Critique or just a word, or nothing at all if you prefer.
