Our subscribers have a lot to say about why they love Funny Times. Here are a few of their testimonials.
“All of the people on our gift subscription list are pretty much conservative right wingers like us. We just get a big kick out of your publication. My daughters are starting to read it, and ask us a lot of questions that dissolve into political, economic, social, and global discussions, so we are really getting our money’s worth, even if we don’t agree with your leftist bent.”
— Monique D., Winterhaven, FL
“We found that cutting Funny Times was like cutting the lifeline to sanity. When we get the paper, we know there are others out there who see what we see and have the wherewithall to joke about it. … You guys are medicine for a sick society.”
— Rachelle and Bob D., Madawaska, ME
“The Funny Times is the only thing keeping me sane … I get a Funny Times in the mail and realize that there are others that think like I do. How refreshing! … You are satisfying a crucial need.”
— Ed W., Madisonville, LA
“Three newspapers are delivered to our house including the NY Times …
and four or five magazines, including The New Yorker. I get no more enjoyment out of any of them than I do your Funny Times. I look forward to its arrival every month. It keeps things in perspective.”
— Ed M., Port Huron, MI
“The Funny Times is how, every month, I reassure myself that a lot of us still realize the world is run by fallible blowhards. Besides, it is an unparalleled Christmas gift, so I don’t have to go shopping …”
— Linda D., Ann Arbor, MI
“Funny Times is a light at the end of the Tunnel of Despair. It’s a dose of comic relief during a pandemic of bigotry, selfishness and negativity. I have to pull myself up short of worshipping at your feet for helping me keep my sanity.”
— Terry W.
“We have been subscribers for about 19 years, and we have truly enjoyed each issue. The Funny Times has been a reliable source of humor and perspective, always there to lend a lift to our spirits. Without the FT (and Jon Stewart), the world would be a far bleaker place.”
— Richard and Monica D., OR
“Way back in the day, I was a letter carrier … I delivered Funny Times to my customers … Somewhere in the late 80s or early 90s I got my own subscription, and I’ve been laughing monthly with y’all ever since!”
— Elaine S., Arizona
“Love your mag! You guys do such a very important job — keeping us on theSunny Side and Funny Side in this time of joblessness and hard times. You’ve got a terrific group of folks who cartoon for you all, and you do such a great job of putting it all together!”
— Bill S., Davenport, WA
“My subscription ended and I never heard from you again. I would like to reconcile. I miss the way you made me laugh. I enjoyed waiting for you to show up at my door and I liked our chemistry in the bedroom.”
— Bob T., Simcoe, ON
“I am currently serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Ukraine, so it takes a while for me to get my issues … I am always so excited to get them. Sometimes I try to save them and read slowly over time … You cannot begin to imagine what a treat it is to get Funny Times while I am living this funny life. Then I pass them along to my friends here to share the laughs (sometimes they get issues with holes in them where I’ve cut out favorite cartoons for my refrigerator … )”
— Christine H.
“We are getting married! And Funny Times has been a part of our story. I’ve been a delighted subscriber since I can remember and have gifted many friends.
On our very first date, [he] mentioned a great cartoon in the Funny Times, and I thought, ‘WOW! Could he be the one?’ Now we read the FT to each other over coffee and laugh and laugh together.”
— Maribeth M., Olympia, WA
“I appreciate the Funny Times not just as a business, but as an enterprise. You guys have character — from personal notes to chocolate bars! I wish I could do business with more organizations like yours.”
— David W., Monroe, CT
“We are so thankful for all of your great service to humanity. Patch and the rest of us treasure your terrific publication over every other periodical and media source. Keep up the great work!”
— Taylor, Patch, and Staff, Gesundheit Institute, WV
“Thank you so much for the many years of fun and thoughtful observations that have shaped my world…
For me and my two teens, your paper is not only food for thought, but also lively debate and active participation in our Democratic process…”
— Michelle W., Columbia, SC
“Funny Times is the only magazine I’ve ever subscribed to where I read everything in it or nearly everything.
When Funny Times comes to this address, it does not die. I send cartoons to friends and pass articles around. Plus, I never throw one away, and when I pick up an old one, I recycle it and read it again.”
— TJ W., Sparta, NC
“Your paper helps me to be in a good frame of mind. I give Funny Times clippings to my doctor, dentist, cleaning lady, computer repair person, plus my political friends AND my husband (opposite party). Thanks!”
— Christine H.
“I have been a subscriber for around 25 years. It is exactly as you imagine it – I lead a humorless, unimaginative, dronelike existence until the day Funny Times is in my mailbox; a ray of sunshine and laughter. Thank you for keeping me sane through some notably unfunny times. (As proof of my age, I am enclosing a paper check.) Sign me – Addicted”
–Joanne L., Elkhorn, WI
“This is the first time I have seen your publication — where have you been for 25 years? Other so-called humor publications (like MAD) are funny on a couple of pages but the rest is not. This paper is a riot, every page is funny. This is truly the best of times and the worst of times, but thanks to your publication, it is also the funniest of times (pun intended).”
–Jack R., Upper Chichester, PA
“I actually get a lot of my news from this paper, plus The Daily Show, because you both tell more of the truth than the television news people. So, thank you, thank you for publishing the Funny Times.”
“Funny Times is … a breath of fresh air in a smoke-filled room. Found money; a car still starting after you left the headlights on all day; a refund from the IRS; Democrats winning the Presidency and both houses of Congress; being told “you’re right” in a room full of people you admire; catching a record size fish the last day before your license expires.”
–Pamela & Ronald M.
“I can’t express how much joy your little paper brings to my husband and me. We often bargain with each other as to who gets the privilege of reading it first. It’s so comforting to know there are so many others out there who share this bizarre, horrifying, lovely world.”
–Valerie N., Richmond, VA
“I love you, too! I work for the Postal Service so I NEED some comic relief. When I deliver your paper to the subscribers on my route, I know I have a treat waiting for me in my mailbox. Keep up the good work and keep printing and mailing your paper!”
–Mary B., Enumclaw, WA
“I figured it was high time I wrote — after 20+ years as a devoted subscriber — to say THANKS! I, along with my now teenage daughters, look forward to my monthly fix of ha-has, and seeing the address label brings back beautiful memories of the friends who introduced me to you way back when. You’ve gotten me through Bush-Cheney, a divorce and other assorted miseries and kept a smile in my mind throughout.”
–Aleta R., West Windsor, NJ
