A little more about Jack Handey

Jack Handey is most well known for his pseudo-surrealist musings on Saturday Night Live, but what a lot of people don't know is that he's a real writer. He has penned more than a few of the best SNL skits (think Toonces the cat), and is a regular contibutor to The New Yorker.

Jake Coyle, a critic for the AP, said it best when he wrote, "With absurdist musings such as these, Handey has established himself as the strangest of birds: a famous comedian whose platform is not the stage or screen, but the page."
