Two writers are sitting at a table discussing writer’s block.
First writer: “My therapist says I should stop cursing. That my short temper and quick use of four-letter words is a big part of what’s killing my creativity. It’s also keeping me from getting work.”
Second writer: “So, what do you intend to do?”
First writer: “Well, I thought I would try some colorful allusions. For example, instead of saying ‘mother fucker,’ I’d yell, ‘Oedipus’ and see if anybody catches on.
Second writer: “I think I’ll have to keep an eye on you.”
