There’s a new idea in here, but you’ll have to read on — or skip on — to get it.

Shortform writing, in all it’s various iterations, is all the rage. There are pubs devoted to it. Poetry can be a manifestation, haiku being one of the most notable.




Drop trou and publish your zany, clever, amusing, laugh-worthy stuff in Doctor Funny, a pub that can do nothing for you. Your mother will be so proud.
