I hate filling out these things. I don't know what to say, I don't know who would care. I'm a guy who writes comedy, I'm a husband and a father, I love to cook, I'm a Marine, and if you want to know anything else, you can ask me on this sight.

One night, as I lay asleep in bed, a large winged creature carrying a cage with its talons landed on my back patio. This bird is very large, about the size of a pterodactyl, and the cage was like an enclosed Ferris Wheel car, only not as clean. This bird's arrival awoke my soul, which left my body and entered the cage that the giant bird brought. Stinky, that's what I call the bird, flew me to remote swamp somewhere filled with human minions and a monstrously deformed man. Howard, that's what the disfigured man called himself, read me the start of a story from one long scroll. Once he was finished reading the story as it was written to that point, Howard made me read all of it myself, out loud. This went on every night for months. The story grew a chapter or two longer with each session until the night Billy Williams, the neighbor kid, followed Stinky and myself to the swamp on his flying go-kart. Billy battled Howard heroically and for hours. The scuffle ended when Billy severed Howard's writing hand with his snipe hunting stick. Billy flew/drove me back home and I haven't seen Stinky, his cage, or Howard again. Billy uses Howard's hand to play "Monkey's Paw: The Game."(less)
