Comedy and the Writing Process

Taking my joy where I can find it - and writing tips, too. I wish my students thought this much about word choice:
"Bill Willingham and I have had conversations about which is the funnier item to poke someone with: a spatula or a slotted spoon. You’d probably think spatula, which would be the right answer in prose, because spatula is a funny word; but visually, a slotted spoon is actually slightly funnier. Because it’s rounded. "
- Matt Sturgess, from an interview at Newsarama
Maybe I'm poking folk with the wrong things.
