Getting published takes time, tenacity and courage.
Or, sometimes, it just takes a good joke.
Mesa resident Pat Ferry is featured in this month in Reader’s Digest, which selected his joke for “Life in These United States,” a portion of its humor section.
Each month the publication shares a selection of jokes from readers and comedians. Reader’s Digest receives nearly 50,000 humor submissions a year.
Ferry’s joke goes like this: “My sister-in-law and her 5-year-old were driving one evening when they noticed a stark-naked woman in the convertible next to them. My sister-in-law was shocked, but not as much as her son.
“‘Look at her!’ he yelled. ‘She isn’t wearing a seat belt!’”
Now that’s something to share with your friends, or a few hundred thousand readers.
