Above all else, I like quirky. Add intelligent to quirky and I’m a goner.
I love John McIntrye.
You may, or may not, know that he was the copy editor and is now a production manager for the Baltimore Sun. No, I do not live in Maryland, but he is a pretty big deal. Mr. McIntrye has been an editor for a long time and his demeanor is iconic. I’ve read his book The Old Editor Says and I follow his blog You Don’t Say.
Every week starts off with the Joke of the Week (Click on the picture above to watch this week’s joke.) They are rarely good, in fact most of them are pretty bad, but I watch every week because I love his delivery. I laugh regardless of the punchline and I look forward to next week. In addition to the joke, his blog is informative, funny and accessible.
John E. McIntrye is unique, intelligent and he knows how to tell a joke. It really doesn’t get any better than that. Oh, and the bow tie adds just a dash of badass.
My thoughts from the laundry room. Punch the Snooze.
