I can only assume that your editorial writer tripped over the First Amendment and thought it was the office cat.


What’s so funny about freedom of expression? Where’s the comedy in speaking your mind or listening to the monologue being spouted by that guy on the F train?

Tweet #penstandup to fill us in on the funny side of the First Amendment. Win two tickets to PEN’s September 19th Stand Up for Freedom event featuring Laughing Liberally’s Baratunde Thurston, Katie Halper, Negin Farsad, and John Fugelsang.

With a little inspiration from Clint Eastwood and Joe Biden or your morning commute, go ahead, punks…make us laugh.

Rules: Send us your new thoughts, your old thoughts, or send us the jokes your cubicle-mate told you last week. Just make sure your submission is a tweetable, 140 characters or less, and that you include #penstandup. The winner will be chosen on Tuesday, September 18th at noon EST based on the number of retweets.

And come join us next Wednesday at Galapagos Art Space at 8pm for laughs galore!
