Send me your funny personal stories

Do you have a funny personal story you’d like me to tell on stage for you? If so, then send it to me. I probably won’t tell it on stage but I will do it on my YouTube channel and let the audience decide whether or not it’s funny.

    It would be an honor for me to be featured here on your website. There are multiple funny stories that happened to me, that's why I don't know what to select on which story to send. As far as I can remember, I wrote something about this on my page on https://allessayvikings.com/ and I don't know if I made people happy through my story. How can I send my stories?

    Keep it up. You are hilarious. The world needs a lot more laughter. I am a retired teacher, so to me, you were even funnier in your "Be Careful Who You Bully" video on Dry Bar.

    This isn't my story but that of a close friend (who ended up getting his Ph.D. in history and teaching history for many years). When "Joe Harris" (not his real name) was a teen, he cared little about studying but a lot about having fun. Late one spring night he and a friend, after disassembling a VW Beetle (without the engine), used ropes to haul the car onto the roof of Urbana High School piece by piece, then reassembled it. Just as they had climbed down from the roof, the cops showed up. Now because Joe was accustomed to getting in trouble, he was a highly practiced liar. Joe's friend, however, was more of a scholar and had never been in trouble. The cops actually seemed somewhat amused by what Joe and his friend had done, but they were required to report them. When the cops asked their names (neither had identification), Joe immediately said, with no hesitation, "Peter Stricklin."* His friend was surprised by Joe's lie, and took a second or two to figure out that he better lie too. So after a short bit of stuttering, he also gave a fake name. The cops weren't dummies, however. Joe's friend's fake name was obviously a lie, as revealed by his hesitation, so the cops pushed him till he gave his real name. And they turned him in for prosecution, because it's against the law to give a fake name to law enforcement in Illinois. They had no problem with "Peter Stricklin," since he had given his name without hesitation and it "obviously" was his real name. Joe and his friend were not arrested, but their names were reported to the school principle; and Joe's friend was charged with a misdemeanor for lying to the police. Joe was disciplined at school, of course. But neither the police nor the principle were ever able to find Peter Stricklin. *As you may guess, I just made up that name. I don't remember the name "Joe" gave.
