How do you pronounce Gude?
It rhymes with booty.
Your book is great!
Technically that’s not a question, but do go on.

Nothing is safe for children. That being said, I try to label things as best as I can.
So I shouldn’t read your self-published zombie sex novel to my children?
No one should read my self-published zombie sex novel.

I like Twitter too much to leave.

Less swearing, 10% of the former’s follower count.

What are some of your favorite quotes?
I have a bunch.
“[Paul Gude] really turned it around and took the high road.” – Ben Acker
“I’ll take it.” – Ben Blacker
“If humor was a planet and we were all cars on the surface, Paul Gude would be a helicopter or maybe a rocket ship.” – John Moe
“I’m proud of you.” – Paul F. Tompkins*
“I will be your torturer.” – John Hodgman**
“. . .an angel-winged guy who flies down through a hole in the ceiling (he also, excruciatingly, plays a banjo)” – The Stranger

“Don’t be a daddy! Be a kitty now!” – Betty George Gude-Pratt

*This was on Twitter in response to my announcement that I had beat my 3-year-old daughter at guessing Twilight Zone episodes based on his descriptions, but IT STILL COUNTS!
**Again, on Twitter. This time in response to my suggestion that HBO cast him as The Tickler in Game of Thrones. Sad it didn’t happen.
