    Author jokes

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Bjørnar Munkerud, May 9, 2016.

    Do any of you know of any good jokes about writers? I thought it might be fun for us to read a few. At least for those of us who enjoy some self-deprecation from time to time ...

    Here's the joke that sparked the idea for this thread:
    "What's the difference between a park bench and a writer?
    A park bench can support a family."

    - Hank Green (presumably not really, but that's who I heard it from first)

    What does an author do with his losses?

    He writes them off! :superlaugh: (Slaps knee, looks around nervously while continuing to laugh) :superlaugh:

    I honestly don't know any jokes about authors. I wish I could think of one. I feel like I'm in a joke right now! I think Bukowski has some good ones. There's one I love but I think it's about editors.

    What did the novelist say to the technical writer?
    "Would you like fries with that?"

    What's the differences between a writer and a thief?

    A thief is original.

    Okay, it's not so good but they only one I could think of. :cool::bigmeh:

    How many writers does it take to change a lightbulb?
    One, but he will change it, change it again, put the first lightbulb back, smash that f*cking lightbulb, then change it again.
    The critics will still hate it.

    Not really funny but meh, I tried.
