Humor Seniors

Rough Notes: GeriatricLand®

Just a few rough notes on an idea I had for a senior amusement park, tentatively called GeriatricLand® – these notes might give you an idea of how a humor writer thinks, or at least how a psychotic mind works. The idea had originally been conceived when I was bored one evening and my lady friend came over and mentioned that her mother was starting to look old. Things just naturally developed from there …
