Just a half hour or so ago I wrapped up my fellowship at The Onion. I doubt I’ll ever have such a good job again, but at least they’re keeping me on as a contributing writer. That’s right, guy sitting next to me reading this as I type (he just now turned away): I get to write jokes for beer and book money this year.
In a set of circumstances that can only be possible with Georgetown’s Finest Humor Magazine, I got on the bus just moments ago to find my fellow Heckler editor Jon Rapoport, back from a year studying at Edinburgh and traveling the world, sitting on this very bus. If he can tear himself away from watching The Wire on his iPod—which is unlikely—I’ll pass the laptop over for a double-team Heckler Megabus blogfest.
Back to Onion news, a few days back the Onion back-to-school issue went up online. You should check out the special features, for which I wrote a number of the jokes, and this news-in-brief item featuring a couple names you might recognize. Also, you may recognize the opinion headline as a bastardized joke about OAs from our new student guide.
I also wrote the SorCon article last week. It was my headline and article, and it’s probably my favorite thing I wrote during the fellowship. Georgetown students are sure to enjoy it. Those hyper-ambitious douche bags.
Between The Wire and me having to write an Onion article before getting back to campus, I’m not sure there will be anymore Megabus blogging this time. But please enjoy this photo of Newark or some shit:
