I started doing open-mic nights at Seattle's Comedy Underground in the summer of 2004. You should read this cool kfmonkey blog posting about the connection between stand-up and politics.

My parody of Mankiw's Ten Principles of Economics. (Alternative download here (.pdf).) This article was published in the Annals of Improbable Research. (Harvard professor N. Gregory Mankiw, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers in 2003-04(?), is the author of a best-selling economics textbook.) Serious-minded readers can find some of the same ideas in my working papers on economics education; the rest of you might prefer the 2nd order parodies by my grad school buddies Evren Damar and Aaron Finkle.

It's not strictly humor, but my conversation with two Texas economists about their textbook's amazingly lousy treatment of global warming is pretty funny.
