I have come to accept this as a part of my personality. I call him EXTREME Jeff!
The thing about humor is that, much like cookies, it is best in moderation. Too much can make a reader a bit queasy. One joke after another becomes tiring and draining. A good comedian will pace and set up his jokes for maximum result. I do nothing of the sort. I hit ’em upside the head and hope they laugh.
But that joke is just so funny that perhaps I can keep it in and… Stop it Jeff! You need to know your limits. You don’t need the whole tray of cookies.
So how does one learn moderation? Perhaps I could go to Humor Anonymous for help. Maybe my friends will organize a funny intervention. I may need to get a priest to exorcise EXTREME Jeff from existence. I need some serious help here. I am just too funny!
Oh my stomach hurts. Who needs this many cookies. It is a good thing that Christmas only comes once a year and that my books are not published. Otherwise we would live in a world of sugary, humorous gluttony.
