Caption: I went out with this book agent last week and told him some stories about work. Then he tried to get me to write a novel based on it. Awesome! I've written three, you know. If you need any advice, just come to me. I could walk you through it. Share my expertise. Writing a novel is a long, hard process. Takes about six months to a year. I'll guide you through it, 'cause you're my best friend and I love you. I finished it last week. I hate you with a passion.

Caption: My new year's resolution is to write a best-selling novel. Did you know "50 Shades of Grey" started out as fan fiction about that vampire book "Twilight"? I just need to repeat that formula: write fan fiction about a popular book and then just change all the names when I'm done. That way, my book will appeal to that same audience and they won't even know why. Which "popular book" are you going to write fan fiction about? "50 Shades of Grey." Only I'll change the names to "Bella" and "Edward," and make them all vampires and werewolves. The literary world won't even see me coming. But they'll sure see you going.

Caption: Welcome to "Great Unknown Moments in Literary History." Tonight, Edgar Allan Poe and "The Raven." "Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary." You call that poetry? Don't quit your day job! I know ducks who can rhyme better! What do you call that drivel? I'm leaning toward "To Kill a Mockingbird." I like "Bye Bye Birdie" better!

Polonius, in Shakespeare's "Hamlet," act one, scene three. Name the three most abundant elements in the earth's crust. By weight, oxygen, silicon and aluminum. Where is the highest chairlift? Breckenridge, Colorado --- but it might soon be surpassed by one in Kashmir! Ernie is totally obsessed with trivia ... He's become a quizzical fitness fanatic!
