Hello Cracked.com visitors! A few quick things:

1) I’m currently running a fundraiser for an ebook of short stories that I’m going to be releasing in February. You can check that out here. (Note that I’m also selling signed copies of The Book of Word Records.)

2) The Book of Word Records makes an excellent holiday gift for the word geek in your life. Buy it here on Amazon or here on Barnes & Noble.

3) To be ignorant of death is to never fear it.

4) I’m not participating in Movember because I look shitty with a mustache and just can’t go through that again. Instead, I humbly request that you donate your dollars to Mr. Simon Barnes, husband of your favorite writer, Kathy Benjamin.

5) Happy Thanksgiving! (Unless you aren’t in America, in which case, Happy Day With Fewer Americans on the Internet!)
