Dave-El here and welcome to I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You.
Monday, I anticipated being quite busy for the coming week and noted I might not being able to post anything. Well, that was an understatement. Except for a brief placeholder for my weekly Saturday Doctor Who post, I had no chance to do anything with this blog.
So what now? Well, now is time for VAY-CAY!
Yes, vacation time but I'll actually have time to draft and post new stuff....
But for today....
For those who love "topical" humor, you know how frustrating it is when The Daily Show or Weekend Update isn't new to make fun of the previous week's news and you're stuck with reruns of old jokes about old news?
I know I hate it when that happens.
Well, guess what?
Today, on I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You, we take a special look back at the some of the classic headline comedy posted in the first month of this blog.
So let's relive some of the laughs we shared in March 2013.

Thank you for indulging in that bit of nostalgia. Yes, it had its moments of charm and wit but I promise I will never resort to a "best of" compilation again.*
*Warning: already at work on future compilations.
So what's up for the future?
- We need to earn some money so another And Now A Word From Our Sponsor is forthcoming. Is Plain White Unmarked Van Emporium still our main advertiser? Will American Glory return to the fold? Is there yet another inconceivably odd business that will underwrite this blog?
- More Strange(er) Adventures.
- And along similar lines, I have another cover alteration project I hope to finally launch this week combining one of the all time greats of comic book artists with one of my favorite modern comedic actresses.
- All NEW headlines and (alleged) jokes for this week's Broken News.
- The LAST installment (sort of) of Journeys With the Doctor: My Stories of Doctor Who (to be followed by an ambitious NEW Untold Tales of Doctor Who).
- And more stuff as it randomly pops into my brain. (Also lovingly known as "The Usual Shit".)
So thank you for stopping by and I hope you return again soon for I Am So Glad My Suffering Amuses You.
