FICTION: The Lone Turkey

For the holiday, I thought I would post some of my early work. I’m still proud of this story, which includes action, suspense, irony, pathos, and a powerful message of animal liberation.

NEWS: I'm on Onion News Network

NEWS: Andy Kaufman Award Honor Roll

Hi, I'm Andy Kaufman of the hit TV show Taxi, and I'm here to tell you that a video of Tim Ellis was selected for the prestigious 2011 Andy Kaufman Award Honor Roll! Tim's video MY VAGINA MONOLOGUE, directed by Michelle Walson, will be screened at the Andy Kaufman Award Finals on November 7, 8 pm, at Gotham Comedy Club. Tank you veddy much!

Just kidding, I'm not Andy Kaufman. I'm Tim Ellis, tooting my own horn! But wasn't that Kaufman-esque of me? I bet it's hard for you to tell whether this is real or a joke. But what I (or Andy) said is true...no goofin'!
