Joke 594

7 Nov

This one comes from jokesaboutwriters.


Sweatshop (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A writer died and was given the option of going to heaven or hell.

She decided to check out each place first. As the writer descended into the fiery pits, she saw row upon row of writers chained to their desks in a steaming sweatshop. As they worked, they were repeatedly whipped with thorny lashes.

“Oh my,” said the writer. “Let me see heaven now.”

A few moments later, as she ascended into heaven, she saw rows of writers, chained to their desks in a steaming sweatshop. As they worked, they were repeatedly whipped with thorny lashes.

“Wait a minute,” said the writer. “This is just as bad as hell!”

“Oh no, it’s not,” replied an unseen voice. “Here, your work gets published.”

    Loved this – may I re-use it on Tickle Me Tuesday next week? I have quite a few writers following me & I think it would go over well!

    I dreamt I went to hell and it was full of agents and the were up to the chins in a huge lake of faeces. I said to one of them: “Well, this doesn’t look too bad.” He answered, “You should wait until Sunday, that’s when the devil goes water-skiing.”

    I’m not one trying to get published, but I travel in a pack of those who do! 🙂 I think the joke is steeped in accuracy! Yikes!

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
