My First Paid Writing Gig

To kick off the new year, I recently came upon this joke I wrote years ago, originally published in Boys’ Life Magazine in 1961. As payment, I received a Boy Scout Handbook, making this my first paid writing gig! It’s obvious to me that I was right to choose film and video as a career (and not joke writing!)

    I didn’t know you were a cartoonist and at such a young age too. Yes, you were right to choose film and video as a career where you became one of the best in the field. CONGRATULATIONS
