A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Poughkeepsie was a science fiction fandom fanzine by Miriam Knight.

Published, obviously, in Poughkeepsie, New York, U.S.A., A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Poughkeepsie was an 8 page fanzine distributed by the Fantasy Amateur Press Association, and included in mailing #103, February 1963.

It included the articles "The Transcendental Fanne, "My Favorite TV Show", "In Memoriam: Duchess County", and "Dear Sillies".

Contributors included Jerry Knight, Margo Newkom and Steve Stiles.

After the publication of this fanzine Miriam Knight had presumably had enough of Poughkeepsie since in April 1963 she and husband Jerry moved to Berkeley, California.

Miriam Knight had begun publishing fanzines under the title Goojie Publications in the late 1950s as Mirium Dyches, and then co-published Klein Bottle (as Miriam Carr) with Terry Carr from 1959 till 1960. As well, Miriam replaced Ron Ellik as co-editor of FANAC, with Terry Carr, in 1960. After releasingA Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Poughkeepsie, in 1963, she then did the fanzines 100% Whole Wheat with Robert Lichtman (later editor of Trap Door) in the 1960s.
