How To Handle Rejection And Still Make Them Laugh

Nite Show hoopsHappy first day of March, Modern Philosophers!

It’s also Sunday, which means that a new episode of The Nite Show With Danny Cashman aired last night.

As always, many of the jokes I wrote for Danny’s monologue did not make the cut, but they always get a new life on this blog when I share them with you.

Put your hands together, and let’s have a warm Modern Philosopher greeting for the Sunday Rejects!

What did you think of my Rejects, Modern Philosophers?  Did any of them make you laugh?  Did you learn that the best way to deal with rejection is to just keep writing because you will always find an audience?

The Nite Show airs on Saturday nights in Maine.  You can like the show’s Facebook page, watch clips on its You Tube channel, and follow it on Twitter @TheNiteShowMe.

    They’re all funny but the oscar mayer wiener and MASH were my favorites. Rejection just comes with the territory I’m afraid. Keep on going!
