Ladies and Gentlemen, The Choleric Issue is Imminent

Whim Quarterly 3 :: The Choleric Issue

The wait is almost over. The third issue of your favorite humor magazine with an avian founder will soon be available in convenient paper format. Dubbed “The Choleric Issue” our latest features 40 pages of brand new content including…

  • 50 Least Infectious Diseases
  • New Additions to the Periodic Table of Elements
  • Doomed Love Stories
  • Shouts and Berbers (A Carpet Column)
  • Unitarian Lyric Changes
  • Lesser Known Follies of Lincoln’s Cabinet
  • Secret Societies: Which One Is Right For You?
  • Important Things to Know About the Orlando Airport Quality Inn
  • Receipts From Nightmares
  • A Free Toy and much more!

While we’re putting the finishing touches on the magazine, it would probably be a good idea for for you to just stay right there in front of this screen continually hitting refresh lest any Whim #3 related news slip through your fingers.

To help pass the time, might we suggest catching up with Issues 1 and 2?

Whim Issue #2 Production: On Target!

There are many steps involved in the production of a high-quality, paper-based, comedy-entertainment product. Right now we, the diligent staff of Whim Quarterly, are firmly rooted in step #57 (paring down references to the French Revolution) and looking toward step #58 (increasing the number of knock-knock jokes). In other words, we’re right on schedule.

Other key steps involved in this very difficult process:

  • #18 – Experimenting with the replacement of the standard four color CMYK printing process with the highly controversial 21-color IMNDGOWYEIGNDLDIGPQDX printing.
  • #96 – Visiting local Masonic Temple and having high priests copy-edit the Contributors section.
  • #163 – Tweeting about what Dame Judi Dench decided to wear to the SAG Awards.
  • #7221 – Staff pizza party (no gluten, no dairy, no meat, no black olives).

As you can see, we have quite a ways to go, but Whim Issue #2 should be in the mail around March 15th.

Whim Quarterly Launch Party

Tuesday, December 15, 2009
8:00pm – 10:00pm
Three of Cups Lounge
83 First Avenue
New York, NY

We’re just days away from unleashing Whim, our new humor magazine, upon the world and who knows what will happen? Will humanity be forever changed for the better? Or will the magazine do what Robert Oppenheimer feared the atomic bomb would do, namely ignite the atmosphere and incinerate us all?

On the off chance that the Earth is not reduced to ashes, join us for the Whim Quarterly launch party. We’ll have $4 drinks and, as entertainment, a stand up show hosted by TV’s Kevin McCaffrey and featuring Whim contributors:

Elliott Kalan
Josiah Madigan
Matt Pack
Matt Passet
Greg Volk

Plus SPECIAL GUESTS Jared Logan and Luke Cunnningham

AND EXTRA SPECIAL GUEST Wyatt Cenac of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Consider it an early Christmas celebration, only with more booze, more laughs and a lot more tears.

Hope to see you there!
