2015 Advice for Graduating Students


I’d been working as an administrative assistant at an Ivy League university for about a year when my boss, the school’s marketing director, asked me to compile a list of inspirational quotes for the graduating class.

I dutifully sent a mass email to the alumni, asking them to share the best advice they had for the students before they entered the “real” world. I then boiled down their responses to the ten most representative quotes. Read the full story

You Too Can Look Like a Real Hotshot – Just Follow These 5 Easy Steps


Whether you’ve been invited to speak at an upcoming conference, gotten the green light from a hard-to-reach publisher, or secured a coveted spot on your company’s “About Us” page, the professional bio will be a critical component of how you appear to the public.

Unfortunately, many people are completely at sea when it comes to writing about themselves. Their worries reach a fever pitch when they realize that this important summary of achievements must be, at the same time, impressive but humble, thorough and concise, confident yet respectful… the list goes on!

Dear Nick: The Practical Advice Column


I’ve grown disheartened with standard advice columns such as “Dear Abby” and “Ask Amy”. We are all long overdue for a practical advice column with some real-life answers. Here are a few questions and home-spun practical advice from the advice-master NickFun:

Dear Nick,

Our 12-year-old is invited to a school friend’s birthday sleepover. I’ve always had an uneasy feeling the parents don’t supervise their kids very well, and a mom I trust agrees I shouldn’t let my son attend. What do you suggest? And if I say no, how should I explain my decision to him? Sign, Concerned Parent.

Dear Concerned Parent,

The kid’s twelve! He’s not in diapers anymore! Maybe you supervise the kid too much! It’d be good for him to have some fun with his friends without his snoopy parents peeking in his room all the time. Sure, he might have a couple beers or smoke a dube but that’s part of growing up! Stop training him to be a wimp and let him have some fun!

Dear Nick,

My name is Tim and I am 16 years old. My girlfriend is also 16 and she’s trying to pressure me into having sex. I want to wait until I am married. What should I do? Signed Tim.

Dear Tim,

What are you? A homo? Take a look at those two gorgeous jugs! Don’t you want to have your hands on them? Stop jerking off and give her what she wants!

Halloween Safety Tips to Avoid Raisin Poisonation


Halloween will soon be upon us. Here are some simple tips that should help keep the holiday safe and fun for everyone.

1. When planning your children’s trick-or-treating route, stick to residential neighborhoods. Try to avoid deserted industrial areas, construction sites, and toxic waste dumps.

2. Novelty contact lenses can add a new dimension to a Halloween costume. Please get yours from a licensed eye care professional; resist the temptation to create your own using an empty plastic water bottle, a razor blade, and a set of colored markers. Read the full story

New Rules of the Road Deride F’ers & A-Clowns


Once upon a very long time ago there was “comic strip” called “There Oughta Be a Law”. The basic premise of this split panel strip was to show common annoyances in every day life and offer humorous solutions. Since I am not an illustrator, nor do I have what might be considered a “normal” sense of humor, we shall muddle on with humorless verbal illustrations of common problems encountered while driving and offer some suggestions to rectify them.

Ask Hank: Cheating Husband Becomes Latter Day Lover


Dear Hank,

I’ve been cheating on my wife since before I met her, and I think she might be starting to get suspicious. It’s getting pretty hairy, but winter is coming so we don’t do too much shaving up here you know.

Should I fake my own death or just tell her I’m a long-haul trucker, or that I’m going to prison for a few years. I know these are only temporary fixes, but I drink like a fish and smoke like a chimney, so I figure I’ll be dead in a few years either way. That’s bad for the kids (only 2 with the wife, but 3 with the secret wife.) Read the full story
