WELCOME TO THE CARNIVAL OF GLEE. Can't you just smell the
elephants? For anyone with a hankerin' to date the bearded lady - or be the bearded lady for that matter - this is the site
Do you enjoy essays about politics, life and popular culture? Want to read about the latest in science?
It's all here - most likely being made fun of, vented about, or both. And if you can't tell the funny stuff from the serious
stuff, well, just remember this is the media in the modern age.
Plus, we're very excited about our "Really
Short Fiction" page. The only thing better than a short story is a REALLY short story. And we've got 'em; brief works
of fiction that offer that little dollop of ice cream on top of your carnival corn dog.
See that creepy hand
in the upper right corner of your screen? That's the hand of Arnie the Carnie. Arnie's been with the Carnival of Glee for
decades. He's done it all: sold tickets, guessed people's weight, mopped out the roller coaster, rigged the dart-throwing
game. Everything. Sure the body odor and wandering glass eye are unsettling, but we love him all the same.
is not a traditional carnival: no long lines, teenagers dressed in sweaty, bulbous-headed licensed character costume, or food
on sticks. This is a Carnival of Glee - that state of mind where mere happiness just isn't enough.
is devoted to the open examination - and frequently open ridicule - of all things: politics, art, culture, and life. In these
pages, you'll find topical humor and the occasional serious thought. If you want cotton candy, bring your own.
if you're afraid of clowns, well, maybe skip the pieces about Congress. Hahahaha! That's the kind of fine humor you'll get
at this website and our sister blog at http://www.williamallenpepper.wordpress.com/ Groan if you want, but just remember how much you paid to get in here.
If that's not enough, you can also visit us on Facebook and Twitter. Pretty much anywhere
but your living room. But if you're offering cake, well, we might be willing to reconsider that.
Remember, anyone can be happy. Only a few achieve glee.
