The power of editing compels you!
Twitter leads to revision! Witness this exchange on Twitter between me (splunge2000) and Mike "Culture Pulp" Russell:
culturepulp The super-rough thumbnail sketches for yesterday's Do/Don't Holiday Guide, with occasional variant punchlines: http://twitpic.com/sc31lMike revised the online "Mr. Do and Mr. Don't" 'cause of what I said! The change is in the fourth panel. As I then said,
splunge2000 The line could've been just "Do you gift-wrap?" I'm always editing, I know that...
culturepulp Actually, maybe that would have been funnier.
culturepulp Yep, slightly funnier. http://bit.ly/8rbLH6
splunge2000 You doing that brings me strange glee.I also said
splunge2000 But if shorter and punchier is funnier, then why isn't **** funnier? (I can't think of anyone good for an example. HUMOR FAIL)
