A little editorial humor
Jul 24, 2006 - 08:04 AMOne of my editor buddies just forwarded this slightly-rewritten joke (originally about a New Yorker editor, he says):
Some Palm Springs residents were on a safari in the jungles of a little-explored faraway country when they were captured by cannibals.
"Oh, yes," the chief of the tribe exclaimed. "We're going to put you all into big pots of water, cook you and eat you."
"You can't do that to me," the tour leader said. "I'm an editor at Palm Springs Life."
The reply: "Well, tonight you'll be editor-in-chief!"
