Web surfers: Need a lowbrow comedy boost? A knuckle-dragging chuckle? Does the word asspants make you giggle like a spastic? Go no farther than Honchie.com, a monthly online comedy magazine produced, since February, by two unprofoundly warped Dallas creatives. Omar Curiel (seen here on the right), 28, is a copywriter at Latitude, a unit of The Richards Group; Charles Stephenson, 27, is a copywriter at Hadeler Sullivan & Law, where Curiel also worked for three years.

"Eventually we'd like to retire and live off the revenues of Honchie," says Curiel dreamily. In the meantime, "if we get fired, I got a cousin who runs a waffle house, and he's always looking for fresh, young talent," says Stephenson. Check out www.honchie.com today. And please, wear your
