Maybe It's Just Me

 
9781511813099: Maybe It's Just Me

Welcome back!
This new collection contains humor columns written between July 2013 and May 2014, an overly odd time by anybody's standards.
 

  • Russia hosted the Winter Olympics...at a Black Sea beach resort. It ended up being the most expensive Winter Games in history, despite the Kremlin's attempts to pull off the entire opening ceremonies with only two AAA batteries.
  • The world said 'goodbye' to Nelson Mandela in a televised event translated by the world's most incompetent interpreter, if you don't count Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.
  • Notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger was convicted and got two life sentences, plus five more years. (The five extra years was a desperate attempt by Bostonians to thwart the threat of a Ben Affleck movie about Whitey Bulger.)
  • Barack Obama was sworn in for the second time, although he was sworn AT way more times.
  • Army private Bradley Manning leaked 700,000 sensitive files and then changed his name to Chelsea, which stumped Homeland Security for over 18 months.
  • In Malaysia, an entire plane vanished, prompting conspiracy theorists to suggest the plane had changed its name to Chelsea.
  • And in a secret midnight vote, Congress voted to not raise taxes.
I made that last part up.
Really.

About the Author:

Parham is the author of the 2009 sleeper, "Why I Hate Straws," his debut collection of humor and satire including the prize-winning stories, 'Going Green, Seeing Red' & 'Driving Miss Conception.' In October 2010, Parham published "Sorry, We Can't Use Funny," another award-winning collection of general-topic satire and humor, and the more targeted "Blush: Politics and other unnatural acts." He followed up in 2011 with "The Middle-Age of Aquarius," a growing-old-but-not-so-gracefully vehicle for the award-winners 'Comfortably Dumb,' 'Snowblind' and 'The Zodiac Buzz-Killer.' "Full Frontal Stupidity" (2012), Parham's 5th collection of humor, satire and observations, features more award-winning stories, including 'Skirts vs. Skins' and 'Scenes From a Maul.' He followed up the next year with a brace of collections, "Chariots of Ire" and "You Gonna Finish That Dragon?" and most recently published his 8th compilation, "Maybe It's Just Me." Parham's work has also been featured in three national humor anthologies: "My Funny Valentine" (2011) "Open Doors: Fractured Fairy Tales" (2012) "My Funny Major Medical" (2012)
