It was once believed that the Wasif did not exist, but was merely a legend borne of the tales told by seafaring adventurers upon returning from their travels abroad. Reaching almost mythical status, the Wasif had never been seen in captivity, but yet was astute at observing civilization.
Did he only come out at night? Was he a master of camouflage like the chameleon? How had he remained such a mystery? It was these questions that enticed the curious to investigate. And only recently have archaeologists begun to unearth writings of the Wasif. They found that not only did the Wasif exist, but he had quite a portfolio of material.

Here is an excerpt from their study: Andy Wasif is a writer with a background in stand-up comedy. Raised in Boston, where he developed a deep connection to the Red Sox, he attended Syracuse University, originally to pursue a career in sports journalism.

Though his first few books were deeply inspired by his roots and favorite baseball team, he’s also produced a collection of comedy sketches, stand-up comedy performances, essays expounding on many subjects, annual year-end notes, an animated short, and many more works of humor.

Now, as he juggles other projects in various stages of development, he is a regular contributor to “The PostGame,” the on-line magazine of Yahoo! Sports, and has also written for Yahoo! Movies.
