I'm terrible at writing humor.

Long ago I wrote a (true) story about riding motorcycles along the El Camino Real (the main drag along the SF peninsula). A sort of conceited friend was leading the pack, but he had a bee fly up the leg of his bell bottom pants. Right in front of Stanford University, he jumped off his bike and dropped his pants to get the bee out. He kinda did a cowboy dance while co-eds and mothers with children watched. I thought it was hilarious, but the best my story received were amused smiles.

So... I got nothin'.
