About the author
Formerly known as M.J. Guns, Ernie Vance is a pen name of Jason van Gumster with a particular focus on nerdy humor and general absurdity. This persona is the happy pit of cynical optimism and ironic wordplay. It’s a playground for the brain and you’re invited to be a part of the fun. Whether its with regularly shared lies or humorous adventures, Ernie’s words are sure to tickle your gray matter like a pointy stick.
Huh… I think I just said his words are like having a lobotomy. Let me check.
Yup. A lobotomy with words. But, like, a fun lobotomy. That’s what Ernie brings to the table.
If you’re a fan of ellipses, callbacks, strained metaphors, and parenthetical asides (like this one), then Ernie’s work is right up your alley… which is certainly a bright and cheerful alley. Not a dark alley where they give less entertaining lobotomies.
