I was retold a great writing joke recently by a friend who said he’d heard it on the radio. Alas, he couldn’t remember the show or the comic. It’s a good one though. It made me chuckle:
“An editor recently lost his thesaurus…he was so lost for words, he couldn’t describe how upset he was.”
We hate it when we don’t know the original source (this comes from editing so many different texts without proper references). So… does anyone out there know whose joke this is?
