Hi, people not living in 2004! I wrote this page six years ago, and should probably update or delete it. I'm not sure the whole "Buy me a lime!" concept is still funny. Then again, the article below was recently reprinted, so it's possible that in spite of the vast amount of writing and performing I've done, I will remain most famous for that article about my failure as a human being.
Seth Brown is an
experienced humor writer. He is the co-founder of the Mad
Cow humor magazine, and previously held a weekly political humor
column in the Providence Journal (Rhode Island's largest
paper) for three years. His work has appeared in various
publications ranging from GenerationJ.com to the Berkshire
Advocate. He frequently appears in the Washington Post's
Style Invitational, and his first book "Think You're The Only

oh wait, we already said that. If charity is not your game, why not
buy yourself some poetry from an acclaimed master? Seth Brown was
the winner of BBSpot.com's 2003 Annual Geek Limerick contest,
the 2001 Class Poet at Williams College, the Poet Laureate of the
Williams Debate Society, a Contributing Editor of the OED In Limerick
Form, and can rhyme with orange. Even famed columnist Dan Savage has
blessed Seth with fulsome praise: "A limerick... takes real skill,
talent and discipline. Let Seth Brown be an example to you. He's is
an impressive young man and poet who we will be hearing more from,
God willing." So how much does this genius cost you? A buck a
line. And that's much cheaper than cocaine. (That's $5 per stanza,
for the layman. A normal limerick is 1 stanza, but if you want to
pay me for a multi-stanza epic limerick, I won't stop you.) |
