Since around spring of 2019, I have been regularly contributing to the Christian/Conservative satire website, The Babylon Bee.
Friends and family often ask which ones were by me (often guessing incorrectly). While it’s flattering when people ask me, “Hey did you write this one? It’s hilarious!” …The truth is that I’m surrounded by absolute comedic geniuses who are much better and more experienced at the craft than I am.
So, to save you the guesswork, I’ll try to keep this page updated with a list of articles I was involved with in one way or another:
4/22/19 Nation’s Grandmas Still Unclear On Difference Between Facebook Comment, Private Message
I didn’t write this one, but it was my first direct involvement with The Babylon Bee. My wife and I (and our terrible sheetrocking skills) were featured in the image for this article, which was written by my talented friend Ethan Nicolle. Apparently, our shoddy work was thoroughly mocked on Twitter.
5/7/19 Op-Ed: If Global Warming Is Real, How Do You Explain Ice Cream?
This was the first article I wrote. I had pitched some headlines before this, but this was my first time getting to write the whole thing (with a few helpful edits from our editor).
