September 27: Phoney Funnies

Sorry. That's a particularly bad one. I'm ashamed to admit that I actually considered "Phoney Phunnies," but I mean, this one's not stupid enough? Rest assured the literary bar will be set significantly higher at TimeOut NY Lounge on Thursday. Come spot the Liar among these talented talkers. It'll be like shooting fish-stories in a barrel.
