Joke of the Week: Separation Anxiety


It's Monday, which means it's time for your weekly dose of locavore levity: the Joke of the Week! This week's joke comes from Essex Junction's Damien Harshbarger. Take it away, Damien…

We are in the middle of a divorce right now. The media is our crazy mother confronting our insane father about where he has been all night and why that Russian man walked out of a hotel room holding hands with him. All of us are just the kids sitting at the top of the stairs wondering if it's our fault.

About That Joke
Says Harshbarger: It's amazing what the news will inspire me to write as I'm watching it on the TV at the gym. This joke just came right out of nowhere and I think it is a clever analogy of where we are as a country right now. Hang on, everyone!

Meet the comedian, Damien Harshbarger

I am a guy that has survived a very unconventional childhood and came out on the other end a successful adult with no criminal record and a decent credit score. I have always known I wanted to be an artist and, by combining my childhood, standup and my unique perspective, I am achieving just that.

See Him Live
Harshbarger is a regular at comedy open mics in Burlington, including at the Skinny Pancake on Mondays and Drink on Tuesdays.
