My Best Stories From Every Publication in 2021 For Free in January

Image author

Greetings faithful and new readers. If you reading this you’re a COVID survivor. Sorta. Did you get what you wanted for Christmas? I did. I got nothing. I wanted nothing. I have too much stuff.

That’s not true. I got COVID. Again. Christmas was fucked up this year. This whole year was fucked up. I don’t wanna talk about it.

This story is free and so are the links below. I do these in hopes that someone reads my stories and joins Medium by clicking on this link. They never do but I like writing these things. Maybe next month I’ll try something else.

Let’s talk about something besides my life currently and instead focus on the my best from each of the following publications in 2021. This aren’t my most viewed or what I made the most on, these stories are what I’m most proud of.


So many good stories. Honorable mention goes to The Most Absurd And Obscure Superheroes Ever Created and the featured and distributed on the same day Six of The Strangest Movies Made by Musical Groups.

My favorite was the variety show story. I originally wrote the story for two other places where it flopped. I re-wrote the shit out of it and against all odds, it hit. Worth clicking for the last video in the story alone.

The Riff

My favorite was also my hit. Making 200 bucks off a two minute story is rare but somehow I did it.

The Bad Influence


Dirty Little Secrets

This story isn’t really about eating ass. It’s funnier than my choice for MuddyUm. I really like what I did here. This is the fifth best thing I’ve ever written.

Writers Blokke

I don’t like writing rants but I’m really good at it. Though this more of a rant parody.


Fuck Niches

This was a hard one. There’s such a variety of stories published in this one. It was the second hardest choice. Honorable mention Hey Minrou, Punch Anyone in The Face Lately?


I save my best humor for Muddy. As a result there’s about a dozen stories I loved published here. My highest earning story this year was Woman Sees This Picture of Her Boyfriend And Immediately Calls The Police that’s at $1,400.

The sequel to it is the 3rd best story I’ve ever written. How This Guy Makes Over a Million on OnlyFans Without Having a Penis. Those are not my favorite.

How To Wine Tasting is the funniest thing I’ve written. Still not my favorite.

This is my favorite. I spent a lot of time on this and I’m really proud at how it came out.

Age of Empathy

This is the best thing I’ve ever written and it’s not even close. I’d trade all the others for this to exist if I have to. Distributed and featured. This should have been on Medium’s best of the year, but they don’t care much for me because they don’t understand humor. This story isn’t funny. It’s the story of my life condensed into an 8 minute read.
