Whitney is the author of The Hamster Won't Die: A Treasury of Feral Humor. She's also the creator of two humor sites -- errant parent and The Yellow Ham. Her humor appears on Salon, The Huffington Post, Glamour, Yahoo Shine, The Frisky, The Weeklings, The Barnes & Noble Book Blog, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, How About We, Loop, and The Big Jewel, where she's on the editorial board. Sometimes, against her better judgment, she does immodest local stand-up for modest crowds, also known as reading off of index cards. Whitney on Twitter: @theunpoet.
