What inspires his entertaining quips? "My deranged and zany brain comes up with many of the silly ones. But of course, my own kids, the students at my school and married life are huge influences on the jokes I write. Also food. It seems like I write a lot of jokes about food, particularlycheese and donuts," says the former first grade teacher from Salt Lake City.

"I've always said that being a teacher is like being a comedian, only you can discipline your audience when they heckle you," he once told a reporter.

His most popular tweet? "Whenever I go to Subway, when they ask if I would like my sandwich toasted, I say yes & then I raise my cup of Coke & say, 'To my sandwich!'"
