Dog's Head on the Subway

Dog Head
Photo by myself on the subway, somewhere underground.

A woman balanced a dog's head on her lap, Wednesday morning, astonishing those around her.

'Amber', a Maltese, had been a faithful companion for over 8 years. Poor little Amber!

Um...joking! April Fool's! (Ok, perhaps this was a bit obvious).

Amber was sitting peacefully on her owner's lap, in a dog carrier. She was very sleepy. Her owner told me that she carries Amber around to work every day.


Speaking of humor, New Yorker Magazine readers know that each issue, the Shouts and Murmurs section can be kind of funny. Maybe not slap your knee and laugh out loud funny, but sort of chuckle out loud funny.

A recent Shouts and Murmurs written by young comedian Demitri Martin was enjoyable. You can read it online here.

Helpful hint: Martin's humor is quirky and thoughtful. The article is best when read at a slower pace.

Demitri Martin is a comedian from New York. He has a tv show on the Comedy Central.

thanks for that Demitri Martin link. after all of the college discussions I've had lately, it was literally a breath of fresh air.
My son loves his humor.
