I'm Going to be a Famous (Laffy Taffy) Wrapper Someday!

As a kid, I dreamed of being a stand-up comedian. In my teens, I wrote an act. In my twenties, I signed up for open mics and chickened out. I love to laugh, and I love to make people laugh. It's one of life's few free true joys. I remember telling my parents that my proudest moment would be if I ever got a joke of mine printed on a Laffy Taffy wrapper. I would mat and frame that sucker like it was a Ph.D. Doctorates are a dime a dozen compared to getting published with Laffy Taffy.

I'm 36 now and writing punny, silly jokes for a seven year old's lunch on the daily. I've started keeping track of my favorites, the ones that have me laughing at my own brilliant yet dumb humor. My plan is to submit a list of them to Laffy Taffy once and for all.

I don't honestly expect to ever see one get printed. And I know I don't have what it takes to be a real life comedian. But if I've learned anything, it's that dreams don't have to be big to be important and meaningful. So here goes, I'm finally submitting my jokes to Laffy Taffy. Soon I hope to be a famous wrapper! (See, they are gonna love me!)

It may never get picked, and I won't ever be a stand-up comedian no matter how many acts I write. I'm still a success in the comedy world though; just ask the kids in my daughter's second grade class! It's a tough crowd, yet I'm killing it everyday. I'd rather make kids laugh than adults any day anyhow. Kids laugh from their hearts.

Here is an exclusive to ONE of my jokes for Laffy Taffy and the mailing address so you can submit your own!

"What animal loves to sing Christmas carols?

Fa la la la llamas."

Follow your dreams, friends. ESPECIALLY the small ones.
