I tried for years to appreciate the “humor” of Dave Barry. I never could find much in his stuff that was really “humorous.”
I wrote off the problem as likely the result of my not being a native-born, honest-to-goodness, Fort Worth category of Texican.
So I was underwhelmed when I saw that Dave Barry was panning the year 2013 in Tuesday’s paper.
And I was quite surprised to see how much space you gave him to accomplish that task — one full page and a significant portion of two other pages.
But curiosity got the best of me and I went back to see how he handled it.
Wow! That was some of the best done humor I’ve found all year. I laughed until I cried.
Thanks for helping to end the year with a smile! And a tip of the hat to Jack Ohman for some quality illustrations.
