Last year I spent a few giddy months writing with a crack team of funny people for The Onion News Network. I left them to pursue my literary ambitions and also because I'm not 25 anymore and couldn't spend all day every day coming up with sketch ideas. Did I rue this decision? A little, yes. There was some drinking. There were some tears.
I have since cleaned myself up and moved on, but look! The Onion News Network is now live, and oh my god, the one bit I wrote for them (okay, co-wrote,sheesh) that will probably ever make it online is actually online today. Oh, I had some others that were brilliant, my friends, BRILLIANT. My favorite was cut because Mad Magazine scooped me. Scooped by Mad! I'm still not over it.
