Famous

I was speaking to a woman one time, and she said something that reminded me of a joke someone had told me a long time ago. In light of the saying, “There’s no such thing as an old joke, if it’s one you’ve never heard,” I decided to give it a try.

I started to tell the joke, but when I got a couple of sentences into it, I could see a look of recognition on her face. “Oh!” she said, “That’s a famous joke, isn’t it?”

What a great way of referring to a joke that has made the rounds for many years! It’s not an old joke, it’s a famous joke!

 

Book Review!

When my first book was published, I asked my editor if I would get reviewed. She told me that joke books are never reviewed. But NOW, with my fifth book, I finally got my first review, and it’s a doozy! Check it out:

Enjoy Laughs? Don’t Miss This Book

With The New York City Cab Driver’s Best Joke Book Ever, Jim has created a compilation of the best jokes from his past publications, which have sold a whopping 275,000 copies to date!

Considering the book is comprised of over 150 pages, which are almost sure to induce audible laughter, you may never have a bad day again! Come to think of it, you must pick up at least two copies: one copy for your bedside table and another copy for those people in your life whom you love and never know what get for them. The New York City Cab Driver’s Best Joke Book Ever! would certainly make a great present if you’re prepared to concede your spot atop the comedic podium.

ReviewLoft thought of including a few jokes, but how does one choose a few favorites from among hundreds of jokes, where each page seems funnier than the last? Our office has been laughing hysterically for hours. If we could put the book down, we’d give it two thumbs up; until then, it gets one thumb up and a room full of adults laughing more than we thought possible.
