Stuff I Learned In My Comedy Career Part 3
You say you’re more of a meat eater? Well, you can thank the leaf cutter bees for our beef! They’re the ones who pollinate the alfalfa that feeds the cows that give us our steaks. I’m guessing the alfalfa bees don’t do it because they’re too busy cutting leaves, no? Speaking of leaves and yard work, are you tired of raking leaves and cutting grass? Well then, plant some Centipede grass. That’s the stuff on the highway median strips and it grows slower than other grass. That’s what I learned from doing comedy for the department of transportation.
Now if you like these facts and figures, go ahead and mail this newsletter to someone, but be warned that the postal worker you hand it to might be a PMR – that’s Post Master Relief person. These are temporary workers for the post office who get paid but don’t get medical or dental benefits. I’m guessing you can tell who they are because they have really bad teeth. This information is courtesy of my comedy show for postmasters!
Learning all of this cool information makes my job a blast and it could even be lifesaving! Remember, if you live near a nuclear reactor, the valve on that thing only lasts 30 years!

From a recent client: “We invited Jan back for a second year to deliver a final morning conference keynote. The first year our attendees ‘Found the Funny in Change’.
