Funny Books

FUNNY BOOKS….I’m not sure why this was on my mind today, but I got to thinking about funny books. I think the funniest book I read in the 90s was Al Franken’s Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot, and my pick for the 70s would be Hunter Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

I’m pretty hard pressed to remember a really funny book from the 80s, though. Maybe it just wasn’t a funny decade.

At any rate, I like funny books. Who doesn’t? So how about some suggestions? Not amusing books, or wry books, or books that gave you a good chuckle. Real laugh-out-loud books that can still make you giggle just by thinking about them.

Let’s hear it.
