What's the voice over equivalent of a straight face?

Outstanding fun.

Um, I think even publishing "outsiders" can understand the jokes, even though we're a bunch of knuckle draggers.

I shall change the title.
However, my readers are not knuckle-draggers.

Whew! Ten to thirty years for the writer to finish the manuscript...then I am right on target. I was beginning to worry.

Thanks for the smile.

The beauty of a You-Tube vignette.

Maybe this is the next frontier for e-publishing. I dictate my story and send you a You-Tube video complete with fetching graphics and marketing.

This would certainly reduce the slush pile.

PS
To cheer you up and for some of the best stereotyping on You-Tube, try the "man flu" clips.
