interview with Jack Handey

I interviewed Jack Handey, one of my all-time favorite writers in any genre, for VICE. We talked about writing his new novel, funny grammar, and proper cowboy dance moves.

What are the core elements a successful "funny cowboy dance"? 
You can't force it. When you're doing the dance, if you suddenly feel like flinging your hand out, do it. Don't think about it. Or if you feel like pretending you're chewing tobacco and spitting, as you dance, do that. Don't be too rigid, is what I'm trying to say.
