It’s Funny Until Someone Loses an Eye (Then It’s Really Funny), is a collection of short prose humor pieces written over several decades. They originally appeared in a variety of publications, from the famous and highly esteemed — such as the New Yorker, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, and Slate — to the more obscure but still influential — such as Yankee Pot Roast, Monkeybicycle, Modern Humorist, and Kugelmass. Some were first published at The Big Jewel, a literary humor site that the author founded in 2002 and oversees to this day. The result is a true miscellany that includes parodies of great literature (Kafka, Hemingway, Hardy, Plato), parodies of artifacts familiar from daily life (a letter of recommendation, a census form, a tax form, a newspaper editorial), pieces dealing with canonical segments of culture (period songs, fake anthropology, conceptual art), pieces about science in the broad aspect (a battle between two paleontologists, a new angle on seismology, a look at the comic side of space travel), personal or relationship humor (a family vacation, a childhood memoir), and what can only be deemed pure nonsense (a Dada-like play, an American history sans history, an update on UFO’s), as well as darker bits reflecting the author’s own psyche and the spirit of the times (various con games, nightmares, cancer-causing horoscopes, and yes, zombies.
