Mike Lawson is a new addition to our Sunday Funnies line-up.  Even the bio he sent us made us laugh, so we're reprinting for your enjoyment here:

Mike Lawson is a self-proclaimed social media junkie, and a doctor-proclaimed Type 1 Diabetic. He's also a blogger, Facebooker, Flickr Photographer, TuDiabetic, Youtuber, Tweeter, Podcaster, Linkedin-er and About.me-er. Since his Type 1 diagnosis in 2000, Mike has used the Internet and social media to connect with other diabetics and to receive help with staying healthy.

His YouTube series, My Life As A Pin Cushion, is a positive, comedic way for him to share some of the lessons he has learned living with diabetes and to spread the positive message that a diabetes diagnosis doesn't mean that you have to stop living.

When Mike isn't updating his status on social networking sites or editing Wikipedia pages, he works at a marketing firm as a web designer. He lives and works in Phoenix, Arizona.

Thanks, Mikey, and welcome aboard!!
