The Laughing Stork

Candy's Column

50 Years

My parents celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary today.  Talk about an inspiration.  Married when they were wee teenagers, their romance has endured through three kids, four cats, two dogs, one parakeet, several hermit crabs, countless fish, and a time when the family had to share just ONE television set — and shower.

Now that’s love.

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
