Funny Friday: Fabio is Fabulous!

You all know I love Fabio -- all those book covers, all that hair... *sigh* Recently I came across a "discussion" of the great romance hero on one of my husband's all-time favorite shows: Mystery Science Theater 3000. I thought, since it had me howling with laughter, y'all might enjoy it too. :) [youtube]

You are welcome!

Funny Friday: "You Don't Read?!?!"

Buzz-Lightyear-Sad-Strange-Little-Man Kristin Scatton's The 6 Reactions Book-Lovers Have To People Who Don't Read is so painfully true...and so genuinely funny. I once spoke with a fellow author who said she didn't read, not because she didn't have time or was too busy, but because she just couldn't get through other people's books. My response -- after I picked my jaw up off the floor -- was similar to my favorite line from this article:

"I see your lips moving. I hear words coming out of your mouth. They sound like English, but I can’t comprehend them."

What's your response when people tell you they don't read?

Funny Friday: Man Candy

I write romance, and for those of you who aren't around romance authors very much, we see (and search out!) a lot of what we call "man candy." Why do we call it that? Because a good-looking man is sweet to look at, that's why! So today I wanted to share a meme one reader posted to the Nice Girls Writing Naughty Facebook Group that made me laugh. And yes, we all thanked her. ;) Enjoy your Funny Friday!

These "creative" descriptions are hilarious. And if, as one commenter suggested on the tickled post where I first saw these, you read them in the voice of Leslie Nielsen, you might just fall out of your chair... ;) So head on over to 20 Actual Quotes From English Exams and see what you think. My fave?

"Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left Ballina at 6:36 travelling at 55 mph, the other from Claremorris 4:19 pm at a speed of 35 mph."

Hmm...or perhaps:

"Even in his last years, Granddad had a mind like a steel trap, only one that had been left out so long it had rusted shut."

And yes, we give some pretty out-there answers sometimes. ;) Here's how a few erotica authors answered the same question from Buzzfeed's Arianna Rebolini. Enjoy! ~ Ella

Funny Friday: Parents...Oy!
