Churchill Can’t Lose

My piece, Wit of Winston, made Splitsider’s list, The Year’s Best Humor Writing.

Here’s Rebecca O’Neal on the piece: “Was Winston Churchill a cad? If his characterization in this piece is to be believed, he wasn’t the just orator we’ve been made to believe he was. Of course, this is all made up — and reminds me of my favorite SNL impersonations, the ones that have little to do with the people they lampoon. There’s comedy in accuracy and exaggeration, but absurdity is so much more fun — The Onion’s notoriously ridiculous take on Joe Biden for example.”

I discovered Splitsider a few months ago when they recruited past Simpsons staff writers for Classic Simpsons Week.
