A Little Writing Humor

I am sorely in need of a good joke. A good writerly joke.  I came across this one on a few sites and it hit the spot:

A writer died and was given the option of going to heaven or hell.
She thought he would check out each place first.

The writer descended into the fiery pits of hell and saw row upon row of writers chained to their desks in a steaming sweatshop. As the writers worked, they were whipped with thorny lashes.

“Oh, how awful,” said the writer. “Let me see heaven now.”

And so the writer ascended into heaven where she saw row upon row of writers chained to their desks in a steaming sweatshop. As the writers worked, they were whipped with thorny lashes.

“What’s this!?” exclaimed the writer. “This is as bad as hell!”

“No, it’s not,” replied God. “Here, your work gets published.”
