Introduction
Nothing bad has ever happened to me on Friday the 13th. Except for that one time at camp. 
... That was an anomaly.

The Northwest Examiner called me "A cross between Garrison Keillor and Salvador Dali." 

I'm a contributor to Funny Times, Rosebud magazine, and various other publications and anthologies.

I published a satirical journal, Vision? Nary!, which was reviewed positively by MaximumRock'n'Roll and the Joe Bob Report, newsletter of drive-in movie critic Joe Bob Briggs.

The Daily News:
 "David Raffin is hilarious." 

Peter Bacho (Author of "Cebu" "Dark Blue Suit") says of his writing: "Intelligent, humorous, and highly imaginative– always a pleasure to read."

The Daily Olympian:
"He’s not your average comedian."

Larry Ziak, KMUN:
"I nearly choked on my breakfast from laughing so hard."

Jodi Lamm (Author of “Titan Magic”):
"His perversions are oddly analytical."

I am evolved from a monkey. I think that's pretty impressive. I put it on my resume. My resume is very long. It is quite a tale.

This is my official stance on Bill Cosby: I never enjoyed Bill Cosby.  His act always put me to sleep.

Due to the heat I have written you a poem: All the fishes in the sea have sent a letter addressed to me. Mostly they were just interested in saying “hi” but also expressing a wish that we eat more pie. For the best pies are made from the fruit of the…

   I have a rabbit on each shoulder. I know what you’re thinkin: “One is good one is evil.” But you’re wrong. They’re both evil. They are both white rabbits and they get a lot of mileage out of this. There is a certain trust engendered in the white rabbit…
