Laughter Helps Us Stick Together.
Stay Sticky, Humans.
Kurt Vonnegut said, "We are all on this earth to fart around."
Ernest Hemingway said, "We are all broken. That's how the light gets in."
And the great Dorothy Parker had this advice for living:
“Razors pain you,
Rivers are damp,
Acids stain you,
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful,
Gas smells awful.
You might as well live.”
In these unprecedented times, fellow humans, Sticky Couch is here for you. We are a magazine that publishes funny things and lovely things and things that will make you want to get up from a nap, or at least move that nap to a couch.
Come sit a while -- just scootch over and don't mind that sticky spot. Feel free to laugh a lot, cry a little, and laugh more about this world we didn't see coming.
For those of you who have kids, the concept of Sticky Couch is kind of a no-brainer. Kids are masters of sticky.
We at Sticky Couch are still finding 10-year-old chicken nuggets and desiccated hot dogs between our couch cushions.
We at Sticky Couch know we are lucky to have a couch to be sticky upon, and lucky to have a home wherein to be sticky.
And now, with more and more of us at home 24-7, the sticky abides.
Dinners. Late-night snacks. Breakfast. Lunch. More lunch. Snacks. Snacks.
And the word couch -- its Latin root means "to lay, place or arrange together;" but in the 1570s it meant "living, alive."
Thanks for being here with us.
Stay sticky, humans.
