You should use this as your laugh track when you’re reading through your own pile, Steve. 🙂
The slush pile (or at least components of it) can be that funny. There likely is a very humorous and interesting blog article hiding in that slush pile that would definitely challenge credulity.

Boy, does that video take me back……I had no idea one could become an editor at so young an age!
When an editor laughs that hard at a debut submission, does it mean that a minuscule platform won’t be lethal?

Meanie! (but funny as all get out)
As a magazine publisher I’ve received thousands of submissions. Very few make me laugh, but way too many make me groan.
