Not Funny: The Latest Chapter
Today, author Chuck Palahniuk came in to appear as a guest on some radio show I produce at some radio station. Someone asked where he had been earlier in the day and he said he had been at another station and all they wanted to talk about was Fight Club. "But wait", I said, "I thought you weren't supposed to talk about Fight Club. That's the first rule!"
He didn't think that was so funny. He wasn't a jerk about it at all but was clearly exasperated with such a gag.
Then I realized that I got sick of that joke like two years ago. And I'm just me. Imagine how sick of it he must be.
His new book is really good, by the way.
