What, Me Worry?
Fans of Mad Magazine will probably recognize the slogan of Alfred E. Newman, spokesman of the wacky humor publication. You don't have to be goofy to not worry, but it probably helps. That's why I'm a great believer in getting nutty now and then.

Those who follow this blog here that you're reading now may notice now and then that I get a bit weird. I actually think sometimes readers take me serious all of the time and don't notice when I'm being silly. I'll concede that I take on some serious topics much of the time, then suddenly I'm out in the ozone with a topic that could be taken seriously I suppose, but I put some twists in it. Even the serious topics I'll throw in a monkey wrench now and then. Why not?
I'm one who thinks blogging should be fun. I even have fun when we get down and dirty in controversy. To me that's one form of entertainment. I try not to offend, but I don't worry so much if readers get angry with me because of what I write. Actually, if anyone gets angry with me because of what I've written it's because they probably haven't carefully read what I wrote and thought it through for themselves. In that case I guess those people aren't really my readers.
So I may say exactly what I think sometimes, present the opposite side other times, or I might just ramble to see if I say anything at all. No matter what, don't get mad as in angry, but it's okay to get "mad" as in dopey like Mad magazine. I just hope you read my blog and whatever else I may write and then let me know your thoughts. I'm a proud writer and I declare my independence from insecurity! Well, I'll try at least.
If you're looking for someone to support you in your nuttiness, you can count on me. I'll be your Nutty Buddy. Be of Good Humor my friends. Hope you're having a great summer!
Do you like to get wacky in your writing sometimes? Do you ever scratch your head when you read my posts and try to figure out where I'm coming from? Are you or have you ever been a Mad Magazine fan? What's your favorite--Nutty Buddies, Popsicles, or some other treat?
