The following are self-rejected gags that I consider too weird or dumb to be sold anywhere. All gags are © 2011 Karen Sneider.
I have to remember, just because I am obsessed with sharks, doesn’t mean everyone else is. For instance, not everyone is familiar with Chum, a mixture of fish blood and guts used to attract sharks.

REASON FOR REJECTION: Too corny, chum reference too obscure for dumb people.
This was when those martini drinks were just getting popular, the crantini, the mangotini, the flirtini. What would a fly order? Well, this actually. This is what a fly would order. Unfortunately, this is not what a magazine would order.
REASON FOR REJECTION: Poo poo humor too stupid, fly has incorrect number of arms.
